T3 Uptake low?
Oct 13, 2005
I was sick in June with a bad infection then had surgery to have ovaries and fallipian tubes removed. Right from the start of my infection I started to feel my heart race. It hasn't stopped, I started having panic attacks and can't sleep.

My gyn thinks it is anxiety and suggested I go on meds. I went for a physical with blood work done and had and ekg and wore a heart monitor for 24 hours and then an echo cardiogram. Heart if fine.

My md said thyroid is ok but when I looked at the test results I see T3 Uptake is 23.6, and the normal range is 27.8-40.7

I guess this is a bit low, so my question is could this be causing the racing feeling I have. What does this low range mean?
