I just got back my results and have an incredible high t3, (liothyronine) what does this mean?

T3: An elevated t3 is seen in overactive thyroid but other thyroid results are needed for confirmation. These include an elevated t4 and a very low TSH level as well before the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism is accepted.
