    Finally got my labs. I"m confused. Can you help?


    I finally got part of my labs today. I've been experiencing weight fluctuations of about 10-15 pounds for no apparent reason and I'm only 5 Feet 1 inch. I work out constantly and keep under 1,500 calories with no budge. My do noticed my thyroid was visably swollen so I was sent to an endo.

    I've also in the last few years had heart racing (off and on) massive hair loss, muscle cramps and involuntary muscle jerking or twitching, swelling in hands and feet and very heavy periods till I had a hysto.

    Please let me know what you think of these labs. THey look great to me. So this pleases me but I still have no answers. Please let me know if I'm reporting this corectly. I don't really know what I'm looking at:

    Thyroid Peroxidase Ab
    TPO <10--------------range <35
    Thyroglobulin AB
    Thyroglobulin ABS <20.................range <20
    Free T3 338.............range 230-***
    Thyroxine-Free 1.1.......................range 0.8-1.8
    T3 Total 118..............range 60-181
    TSH 0.93..................not sure on range. unclear on the labs....
    FSH 4.3....................again unclear on range
    Estradiol 308..............again unclear on range
    Cortisol AM range listed at all

    As I read your symptoms, I thought "classic hyperthyroid". But your thyroid results certainly show nothing amiss there. So I dunno. I hope the endo can make something of it, whether it's thyroid or not.
    Good luck!
