Doctors make arbitrary guesses through sampling....the ranges and levels really don't mean much of anything, beyond what is "dangerous", but not necessarily what is best for you.
Let's look at your tests:
1) Your TSH really doesn't represent anything, but the stupid doctors use it and worship it as God, which is unfortunate and the patients suffer for it, like you are. Like diamondgal says, hope you're very lucky and find one of the rare doctors that have a clue. Your TSH should be towards the lower end of the range if not below.
2) Your other tests really aren't indicative of much, because you are getting either TOTAL measurements of thyroid hormones anachronistic measurements. You want FT3, FT4, and TSH. Labcorp offers this test as the "Comprehensive Thyroid Profile II", and this is what you want.
