New thyroid labs - conflicting interpretations

Hello all - been quite a while since I have posted, although I do lurk and learn.

I just got my first "complete" thyroid lab panel and the results seem good to me, after a year on first Euthyroid for a few months, then W-throid (NDT) which I requested as I do not trust synthetically manufactured replacements. Problem is the Doc that ordered the labs says the Reverse T3 is fine, but another Functional Medicine Doc says it is "pooling" (I don't even know what that means) - probably because of low DHEA (19).

I am only taking half a tablet (1gr) daily -seems enough

Here are the labs - hope someone can lend some insight about the RT3

Thyroid antibody test: normal

TPO <10<=34IU/mL

TGA <20<=40IU/mL

Regular panel:

result range

TSH 1.53 0.45-4.50mU/L

*down from 5,8 a year ago

T3 tot108 80-200ng/dL

FT3 2.8 2.0-4.8pg/mL

FT4 1.4 0.8-1.7ng/dL

RT316 8-25ng/dL
