    T3 tested is usually ordered when there is an abnormallity in the TSH and T4 test. Your doctor was probably looking for hyperthyroidism. With your T3 at 36 it "might" be mildly hyper. but these results could also be caused by taking HRT's (estrogens). That is if you take them .
    Try not to worry it's not to high. =)

    I know its hard, I have hypothyroidism and possibly parathyroid problems.
    I hope that you get a doctors appointment soon to discuss treatment .
    Thyroid problems can make you feel pretty cruddy . I hope your feeling better soon.
