elevated T3

I visited my FNP and had blood work done.  She said my T3 was slightly elevated, over 200, is all she told me.  So I was given medicine for hyperthroidism.  When I called to get some answers, I spoke with an LPN that could not tell me much.  I thought people with hyperthroidism lost weight.  I am considered morbidly obese.  Is this possible?  Should I get a second opinion?

You should get a copy of the test results.
What med were you put on?

I am going to call for copy of the results.  I'm on tapazole, 5mg.  My t3 level was just 236, so I think that is just barely out of the range.

At this point it would be best to take a look at the TSH blood test result. Do you have that?

Besides weight gain )which is uncommon in hyperT - but DOES happen) what other symptoms do you have?

Tapazole is a PTU - so your levels must be within ranges of hyperT for your doctor to prescribe it.

Again - posting symptoms and TSH will tell alot.
