Re: what does a TSH level of 0.8 mean?

A single TSH level such as yours tells very little. Are you having any possibly thyroid related symptoms? If you are ask to have further tests - FT4, FT3 and thyroid antibodies.

Thanks! I am having symptoms but the test is within "normal range" but on the very low end. Didn't know what to do next as my doctor has written it off now.

What were all of your results or did your dr only complete a tsh and not t3, t4, free t3, free t4? You cannot go off just a tsh...it will not be accurate. Can you post your results with their ranges?
