    What it means really depends on a couple of things. Are you currently on thyroid medication? What are your FreeT levels like? How do you feel?

    Please keep us posted.

    It's within normal range but low, the free t's have to be considered to make a diagnosis.
    Could be fine or a swing that occurs in Hasimoto's disease, low, then high. Do you have symptoms and that's why it was tested?

    years ago the Dr. said that I had the start of Graves disease and was going to dissolve the thyroid, but I got pregnant and since when I get tested it might be low, then normal , then high. Thanks for the info and I currently am not taking any medication.

    No I am currently not taking any medication, and the Free T levels were checked 6 months ago and I cannot remember what they were. Lately I seem to more tired then usual and that's about it. Thanks for your response.

    You have to have antibody tests to see if it's Graves. Sounds more like Hashi's. Usually tsh is much lower in Graves, and doesn't usually go up without meds. The only way to know is more tests, and a copy of your labs.
