Dear XXXXXXX
Your thyroid report is suggestive of thyrotoxicosis. Thyrotoxicosis means excess thyroid hormone levels in the blood. There are two main causes for this problem- Graves' disease and thyroiditis. To differentiate between the two you have to get Tc 99m thyroid scan. I advice you see an endocrinologist after this test.
