Will Drs here order full thyroid labs to include free T3/T4, reverse T3, and both thyroid antibodies? Thanks.

Sometimes. Try asking for a HealthTap Endocrinology specialist (Concierge virtual consultation service). You can discuss your disorder and your reasons for needing testing, and also send images while in the middle of a live or textchat consultation. The fee remains the same, regardless of whether or not tests are ordered, and whether or not medications are prescribed.

What is the effect of thyroid antibodies on the results of total and free T3 (liothyronine) T4?

Anything. The presence of anti-thyroid antibodies suggests that you are more at risk to develop thyroid disease. The results of total and free t3 (liothyronine) and T4 depend on whether the thyroid is under active attack by the autoimmune process and the stage of the disease. Usually there is an initial phase of overactivity followed by under-activity (hypothyroid with low t3 (liothyronine) and t4) as the disease progresses. Read more...

Normal. The thyroid labs you presented here are essentially normal. The TPO antibody in some labels is considered normal when less than 20/IU, but this would not be a significant abnormality. The labs do have to be be interpreted in context of prior labs and other conditions the doctor may be considering. Read more...

My blood results came back normal but I still don't feel right? Tests for thyroid, antibodies, low test (TSH, T4, T3) and testicular. Physically

Work with your team. When people just don't feel right in a general way, blood tests such as you had rarely give the answer. You need to find a provider (either MD or NP) who will listen to your complaints, get more history, and not just order tests. Perhaps you are not getting enough sleep or have some form of depression or mood disorder. Lots to consider and you need to see someone for more than 10-15 minutes. Read more...

Thyroid Ab's and... Many people who are clinically hypothyroid have normal tests as what is normal is debatable. Many believe any TSH above 3 is too high, some even above 2. Check anti-thyroglobulin and TPO antibodies but also test Free T3 (liothyronine) and Reverse T3 (liothyronine).
