Not likely,,,: It’s unlikely that this medication is related to your T3 uptake or thyroid function in general. Having said that, it’s still a good idea to discuss the results with your Dr., especially related to how high your T3 uptake was and in regard to your overall health profile. Best of luck.

Not likely,,,: It depends on your overall health situation. If you feel fine then it shouldn’t be a cause for concern. Many test results fluctuate with no signs or symptoms. It would be a good idea to talk to your Dr./the Dr. who ordered the tests about the results of these and all the other tests and physical exam, if you had one, to get an assessment of your overall health situation. Best of luck.

Looks great so far ,: According to what is expected, this is well on course. The hcg might be somewhat low for 7 weeks but there’s a heartbeat. It’d be smart to keep up your regular appointments with your Dr. to monitor your progress. That way the best course of action can be determined at the appropriate time. Best of luck.
