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.
