Hyperthyroidism?

Hi can anyone please help me with these results?

THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 0.694 mIU/L

FREE THYROXINE 15.41 pmol/L

TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 99.4 nmol/L

FREE T3 *9.54 pmol/L

THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY 16.770 IU/mL

THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 10.33 IU/mL

My daughter (33 years old) had this test done recently as for the past month she has had bad stomach pain/bloating/gas (especially after food), extreme fatigue, general aches and pains (especially in her thighs, back, hip and feet), headaches, hair loss, inability to concentrate and palpitations (she feels like her heart is in her throat). At times suffered from tinnitus when she is laid down in bed. She has never had symptoms like this or IBS (which is what the doctor is blaming!)

It is worth noting that she has recently had a baby (8 months ago) and is still breastfeeding.

Is this hyperthyroid?

Do you have ranges for those results? The FT3 looks high, but you can never really tell without the range. :)

OK, so her FT3 is quite a bit out of range, but her TSH and FT4 are in range. I don't think I've ever seen results like that before. Hopefully, someone will come along who knows more. :)
