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.
