    FT3 of 794.5

    That seems so high! fT4 is .6. TSH is .25 What does that mean? Endo doesn't want to see my daughter until March 20th. She's 17 and just recently been diagnosed with Graves Disease. Not on any meds at this point. Her only symptom right now is extreme fatigue. I hate not understanding all the test results!

    FT4 and FT3 are the thyroid hormones. When either one is too high, it's known as "hyperthyroidism". Your DD has far too much FT3 for her needs. That's what it means.

    Get a copy of Thyroid for Dummies by Dr. Alan Rubin. It will help both of you to easily understand normal thyroid function, Graves' disease, and the available treatments for it.

    Good luck to you both.

    You didn't post the ranges, but if it is unordinarily high, have you thought about repeating the study to rule out a lab error?
