Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Low levels of both TSH and FT4 indicate that the problem is at Pituitary or Hypothalamus level and NOT Thyroid.
  • Also, your thyroid is NOT hyperactive and your thyroids are apparently functioning normally.
  • You will therefore require further evaluation to localize the site of abnormality. Based on the test reports, appropriate treatment will be given to you to correct the condition.

Consult an endocrinologist to know the required tests and appropriate treatment, based on the reports --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/endocrinologist
