Hi, girls! What does an elevated T4 mean?

Got my blood work results...
TSH = 1.99
T4 = 14.5
T3 = normal range

I also got the results of my MRI... no problems with my pituitary gland.

Still waiting for the endocrinologist to call with my appointment...

Actually those results look fine to me. I wouldn't go changing anything. How do you feel? I would suggest they test the free's next time, not the reg T3/T4's.

I feel like total crap actually. But I'm not having my meds adjusted. I have a follow-up with my family doctor tomorrow but my endo will take over my thyroid-related care... whenever he decides to call me to schedule my appointment. Thanks for the replies!
