Normal TSH, High FT4 and High T3 Uptake
I am in the process of switching doctors and my new doctor just ordered new screenings done, tests my previous doctor did not. I just got the results and realize I won't hear from my doctor as it is the weekend. Searching the internet, I couldn't get any answers, so I thought I'd try here.
I've been diagnosed as hypothyroid (I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) in 2006 and have been taking levothyroxine ever since. My current dosage is 125 mcg.
My tests came out:
FT4 Index: 4.05 (Normal 1.40-3.40)
T3 Uptake: 38 (Normal 23-37)
Any thoughts on this? I did have a miscarriage (my fourth) on Dec 9, bleeding continuously until Jan 6 when I went in for a D&C. Bleeding continued after the D&C, and stopped when I went through a second course of antibiotics. I've had 2 normal cycles since then, though they have been a bit longer between periods than before. I am not experiencing any other hypothyroid symptoms, and have not had any hyperthyroid systems.
Thanks for your help.
Oh and my iron levels and Vit D levels are low, but that's pretty typical for me.
