What range is your lab using?  I go to Quest Diagnostics and the Free T3 range is (230-420)  
Are you havng a free t3 done or a total t3?

a total t3 test is outdated and not used. The Free T3 test is the actual most active form of thyroid hormone in the body. Our Free T4 gets converted over to Free T3.
You need to ask them to do the correct test (Free T3)  with your Free T4 and TSH to compare all 3 properly.
