Need help with diagnosis

I just received my test results and don't know how to interpret them. My T3 was 2.9. TSH was 1.4 and FREE T4 was 1.1. All of that looks great and I am on thyroid meds to keep those numbers looking good. But I am plagued with symptoms so they ran a thyroid antibodies test which came back 1519, I realize that is a far piece above the recommended 60. What does this mean?

    Do you have the ranges of these tests - the figures are usually in brackets. It's because labs differ throughout the country that these are needed to be able to comment.

    Thanks.

  • Missdawn, elevated thyroid antibodies means you have autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's).

    Many members find a gluten free diet is helpful in reducing antibodies.
