T3 looks OK, T4 maybe slightly on the low side. This is pretty close to middle, usually good for most people.

I don't recall your history, but based on people not taking thyroid med, vs people on T4 vs people on T3/T4:

These labs look to be a caracteristic of someone on T3/T4 natural thyroid. If that is the case, T3 will always be higher in its range than T4, and TSH is more influenced by the higher T3. That said, carefull if wanting to raise a little higher, small steps.

Ok thx. I'm taking 1 grain of naturethroid. I used to be on armour (for about 14 years. Dr said I could take a 1/2 grain in afternoon.

I know lyme plays with the thyroid, and I was surprised to see my scores as good as they are.
