7.9 depends on the scale and which test: Your doctor can clarify because they can test for T3, T4, free t3, free t4, tsh and antibody levels.

For a free t4, my doctor uses the scale of 0.7-3 for normal: so a 7.9 is pretty high, but your doctor will be able to answer this the best and help you figure out where your levels should be.

Hope you're feeling more like you now.

I had hyperthyroidism and had to get surgery to remove a lump on my thyroid which made me have hypothyroidism many years ago. I don't know what all the numbers mean, but once your meds are regulated everything should normalize for you. Although, I must say that I feel I have to work harder to lose weight than before...for sure!

I can't answer your question but glad to hear that there are teams for even that! I have it too but so many of the symptoms are the same as my fibromyalgia that I don't know what's what. lol
Seriously though, I do wish you luck! My doctor tells me I have NO metabolism which is one of the symptoms of it. I'm going to join a team so I can learn more too.

Test came back as a 7.9 on my thyroid test. Starting on meds tomorrow. Anyone else dealing with this? Is 7.9 way high?


I am determined to better myself.

I will be healthier and be the mom my daughters deserve.
