Thyroid Problems/Test Results

Question
Help! I am always tired, my hair comes out in clumps, my fingernails have deep ridges and now bumps on them. My Thyroid profile is as follows: T4 7.0
T3 Uptake:39.5
FT1:6.91
TSH: 1.81
Are these all normal limits? Thanks, Kathy

Answer
Hello Kathy,
Warm welcome to you!
Please send me your age, weight. Also in the above mail you have written FT1 which is wrong. So can you please clarify me whether its FT3 or FT4 value you have mentioned.

All others are in normal range except t3 uptake and FT3/4?
Are you on any medicines currently?
Please send pic of your nails if possible.
Have been sick anywhere recently? any infection?


Thanking you!
