Brief Answer: You have normal T3 uptake but low TSH. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX You need not be worried. You have normal T3 uptake.In females it is 25-35%. But your TSH value is low.Its normal value in females is 4-5 mIU/L. TSH may be suppressed due to overdose of supplemented thyroid drugs. Free T4 estimation should also be done as it is biologically active component in the blood. You should consult your doctor and you may need dose adjustment. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
