Re: help

Can you give us the ranges for the T3 and T4. Actually the best tests are Free T3 and Free T4, you don't have them by any chance do you?

Your TSH is pretty high for being hyper, have you had your antibodies tested for Hashimoto's and Graves (TPO-Ab, TG-Ab and TSI)? Often labs that don't correspond to symptoms are a result of autoimmune disease.

Re: help

I'm not sure about ranges you refer to. The nurse said....
TSH was 1.36 and the normal range is 0.35-5.50
T3 was 30 (percent?) normal range is 20-37
T4 was 8.8 and normal range is 4.5 - 10.9

As far "free" T3 and T4 I don't know. I will get a copy of the lab results Monday to check them out. The doctor wants me to see a cardiologist for a Holter Monitor.
I forgot to mention that I also saw my gastroenterologist again per docs orders to address IBS which I was diagnosed with in 2004 but had been seemingly symptom free until all this recent intestinal problems.
