I don’t know this my doctor is very matter of fact just saying oh your levels are within the range so your fine what your taking and any time I’ve mentioned my t3 or t4 she just says it’s in the range and that’s all I get

I am sorry but I cannot help you much if you dont even know your results. You wont be able to get a second opinion from another Dr without knowing the results either. I would suggest going in person and requesting an actual copy of the lab result. The tsh should be 0.3 to 3.0. That is the normal range
