A very low TSH means hyperthyroidism (increased thyroid).

TSH may also go low in people who are on thyroid medicines.

Free T3 and Free T4 too are important investigations which need to be taken in consideration with the TSH.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
