I had thyroid blood work done and would like some help with the interpretation, please. It looks like everything other than the TSH is out of target range. I have an appointment with my PCP next week, so any advice on what I should ask him is appreciated. 

History: 
60 year old female
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in the 1980’s, and have been on synthroid or levothyroxine in various doses ever since.
Currently on 125 mcg levothyroxine.
I am on several other meds for other issues. I can list those if needed.

I have always felt warm, but lately I am cold most of the time. I can’t put an exact date on the change, but its within the last three months. I have been having acupuncture for the last year, and one of the things she was working on was correcting body temperature.
My morning temperatures run between 96.2 F and 97.6 F 

Started WB Feb 11, 2020, lost 32 pounds so far. Need to lose about 60 more.

Taking Vit D, Magnesium and fish oil in recommended doses.

I tried iodine, but 50 mcg caused insomnia for two days. (1 drop of AllVia brand, where 3 drops = 150 mcg) This is what prompted me to have the labs done.

Results:

I did not take the levo on the day of testing. Drawn at 10 am


Test Result Range


Free T3 2.1 pg/ml 2.0 - 4.4


Free T4, direct 1.25 ng/dl 0.82 - 1.77


Reverse T3 22.0 ng/dl 9.2 - 24.1


TSH 0.288 uIU/ml 0.450 - 4.500 flagged low


T4 8.0 ug/dl 4.5 - 12.0


TPO Ab <9 IU/ml 0 - 34


Thyroglobulin Ab 103.5 IU/ml 0.0 - 0.9 flagged high

Thank you. There is so much to learn. Its overwhelming at times, but I love knowing I’m finally getting healthy after 60 years.
