What does high T-3 (38) thryroid mean?

It means that you have a hypo thyroid.(low) You just have to take a pill everyday to get it back in the normal range. You must be really low because mine was only 23(it should be around 2-5 I think,I can't remember for sure but it's some where around there) and they said that I was really low. The higher the number the lower you are.Source(s): I started with a hyper thyroid and they gave me radiation to kill off part of my thyroid and now I have a hypo thyroid so I just take a pill every day.

It means that the circulating thyroid hormone levels are elevated. If this is the case with u or someone u know u need to consult a doctor ASAP. Can have fearsome consequences.
