Customer Question

I have always thought that I had a problem with my metabolism. I was recently tested and here are my results: TSH (1.79), free T4 (.89), and free T3 (2.4) What do these results mean? I know that they are all low and it's obvious my life sucks bc I'm always hungry and cannot even eat 1000 calories a day without gaining weight.

The TSH is in the normal range.Out of these three hormones the TSH is the most important one to look at.If the TSH is normal it means that your thyroid hormone levels are okay.The symptoms that you are having are not related to your thyroid producing lower levels of hormones.Have you had any other tests to get evaluated in a much better way?Please let me know.Regards
