Thyroid levels

Hi All!
I am new here, and was hoping that someone could help me decipher these
tests. I have fibromyalgia and I am trying to rule thyroid prbs. out.....

my results are (which my dr. said were in range, however would like to double check if they are on low end of high end.
Advice would help!

My TSH is 1.140 Range: 0.450-4.500
T4 is 9.0 Range: 4.5-12.0
T3 is 2.1 Range: 71-180

What do you think?? Anything contributing to my fibro??

Thank you!!!

Is 2.1 what you meant to type? Or is that a typo? Please confirm.

If it really is 2.1, and your doctor says that's "in range", he's a moron. He didn't even order the best tests for diagnosis. These are total T4/T3 tests, and they're far less accurate than the important free T4/T3 levels, but they're low enough to suggest the free T4 and free T3 are probably deficient.

He also should have ordered TPO and Tg antibodies tests.
