# SCTransform Warning: in theta.ml(y = y, mu = fit$fitted) : iteration limit reached Running SCTransform on my seurat object produces the warning: Warning in theta.ml(y = y, mu = fit$fitted) : iteration limit reached


What does this warning mean? Can I trust the output?

SCTransform runs through the data producing this warning until the progress bar reaches 100%. The resulting seurat object does have an SCT assay and I have successfully done downstream analysis with it. I am concerned that my SCTransform has not successfully done what it is supposed to do. Is there a way to cross-check?
