TSH of 3.34, low iron and ferritin, pretty low iodine. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 on low end of lab normal. Mild symptoms of hypothyroid. Do I need meds?
Yes, iron: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, given your TSH value you probably do not need thyroid medication. However, you are iron deficient and should take oral iron supplement and multivitamins.

What is the significance of a low T3 (liothyronine) uptake with normal TSH and ft4 7 weeks post total thyroidectomy and on levothyroxine for 7 wks?
No significance: T3 (liothyronine) uptake is an old test used to indirectly measure t4. Now that we have assay to accurate measure free t4, we don't use this test anymore. If your TSH and free T4 is normal on levothyroxine, then you are doing fine on the current dose. No need to change anything at this point. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hyperthyroidism and nodules .Ths is 0.50 sudden pain in thyroid and feeling unwell, exhaustion, nervousness drskeep sending me for ultrasounds and bl?
Low T3, (liothyronine) but normal TSH and T4. Really tired, cold etc. Family hx of Hyprothyroidism.
Not hypothyroid: If your TSH and T4 are normal then your are NOT hypothyroid. Low T3 (liothyronine) can be due to non-thyroidal illnesses. This is because most of Thyroxine(T4) is made in the thyroid gland but 80% of circulating T3 (liothyronine) is made in peripheral tissues(liver,muscle etc) from the conversion of T4 to the more biologically active T3 (liothyronine). Thus illnesses affecting these other organs or tissue can cause a low T3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
Low total t3 (liothyronine) 46 and low range TSH and T4? Hypothyroidism? Would it be treated with supplement?
Low tsh: If you only needed thyroid supplement, your tsh would be elevated. Since your tsh is not elevated and your thyroid hormones are low,there could be a problem with your pituitary gland. An endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate,advise and treat you and more than thyroid supplement may be needed. Appropriate tests will be ordered. ...Read more
