    Does anybody know what the ideal T3 levels are? A doctor is doing thyroid tests on me and she was only going to do TSH, but I also requested the T3 test because I've heard so often that TSH doesn't tell much. What numbers should I be looking for?

    Thanks,
    Marilyn :)

    There is more than one T3 test. Do you happen to know which one was ordered? More than likely it was the T3U, and if that's the case it may not be adequate to diagnose a low thyroid.

    All the doctor wrote down was T3, so maybe she'll do them all??
