Sooo here are my labs.... thoughts?

Thyroglobulin ABS <20 range: <20
Thyroglobulin 7.4 range: 2.0 -35.0 ng/mL
T3 uptake 30 range: 22-35%
T4 (Thyroxine) 7.7 range: 4.5-12.0 mcg/dL
TSH (3rd generation) 5.33 range: .40-4.50 mIU/L

Dr. says everything look "normal" but labs should be taken again in 3 months to determine if I have low thyroid...He said it needs to be documented over a few months to determine if I am indeed hypo, then he will prescribe meds. thoughts?

You appear to be 'subclinical'. Which can benefit from meds.

Your TSH is out of range and free T4 can be higher. I'd def get on meds if I were you.
