Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually these tests are essentially normal and they dont indicate any serious abnormality which can indicate that you have hypo or hyperthyroidism.

The TSH is within the normal range

T4 is also within the normal range

T3 uptake is slightly above the normal range, however i would consider this as a normal variation in light of the remaining normal tests. mild variations can exist and are not clinically significant

T3 (i believe this is the total T3 and not free t3) is also within the normal range

The thyroid peroxidase antibodies are below 35 which is also a normal test result

Same holds true for thyroglobulin AB which too is normal

So all in all your thyroid tests are normal and dont indicate any abnormality.

Do you have any more questions?
