    Question About Results of Thyroid Uptake/Scan Test

    Hi, All --

    I have a quick question about the meaning of the results of my thyroid uptake test. I don't know the results of the thyroid scan yet, but the nurse who did my 6-hour and 24-hour (post-iodine pill) test said that my uptake was pretty low on both tests. (Normal range is 5-15%, mine was 1%.) He said that that could mean that I was either very hyper OR very hypo. Since I have low TSH (.004), high normal free T3, and normal free thyroxine, does this rule out Grave's disease?? Or could I have some form of hypothyroidism?? (My symptoms have been hyper up until the last couple of weeks, when I've been very, very cold, not related to the weather here in Atlanta.)

    This can be sub acute thyroiditis or Hashi with a hyper phase with a low result or uptake.
