What does this mean? All my other bloods seem normal except creatine which is 46

Anything I need to do? I’m 35

Nothing. It's the TSH that is read first. If TSH is normal It doesn't even need doing T3 and T4. They can be ignored. Take it as normal thyroid function

I have been taking a supplement for weight loss- please see attached. Is this dangerous?
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Said acts on T3 and T4

I'm not sure about this. Reason being they are not something approved by the FDA

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I understand but from looking at the ingredients could this cause problems?

Let me see
