Labs

TSH .02 normal is .34-5 (so I'm low)
T4, Free 1.84 normal is .60-1.50 (I'm high)
T3, total 143 range is 87 - 190 (normal

Anyone know what this means?

Thanks!

Re: Labs

Those labs are showing hyperthyroidism, overactive thyroid. You should have FREE T3 and thyroid antibodies checked (if you haven't already). Are you on any thyroid meds? Any symptoms?

Those labs were after I was on 125mcg of Synthroid, the Dr. lowered me to 75 and unfortunetely I don't have a copy of the labs after 6 weeks of being on that dose. I will have to find a copy of those labs.

To answer your question though, I probably was having symptoms, I was losing about 2lbs a week without really even trying and I felt like I could run two marathons a day! Now, after being on the 75 I am a little more sluggish and I put 5lbs back on...
