I am a 52 year old female. Over the past 18 months I have lost aprx 60-70 pounds. Much of this is due to grieving as my husband passed away. However, a friend suggested I may be losing weight due to a thyroid problem. During my last "physical" I received the following lab results:
TSH 3rd generation 2.76
T3 uptake 31
T4 Total 7.2
Free T4 Index 2.2
The Doctor did not mention that there was a problem and I really did not feel there was a reason to ask. It was not until after my friend my this suggestion that I became concerned.
Are these lab results indicating there may be a problem?
Is the amount of weight I lost indicating there may be a problem?
My friend has gotten me a little paranoid so I would appreciate some feedback.
thanks for your help
