question about thyroid tests

I recently switched from Armour Thyroid to Nature-throid (2 grains daily).  Had blood tests last week as follows:

Free T4    1.4 ng/dl
T3 Total    2.54 ng/ml
T3 Free     7.2  pg/ml
TSH         0.03 uIU/mL

Why do you think my T3 Free is high?

Both your FT3 and FT4 are high.  FT4 is still in range, but barely.  I'd say you need to decrease your dose slightly.  Are you having hyper symptoms?  I think you need to get that FT3 down a bit.  How do these labs compare to your last labs when still on Armour?
