could a low TSH still be a hypothyroidism

I sent my lab results just recently... i am just shocked at how my TSH that is borderline low indicates hyper thyroidism.... for anyone who can break down the result of my lab work or offer any input that would be awesome.... not sure if i will be taking anything at this point... was just wondering if my TSH was borderline low (hyper) if i could still be hypo with all the other numbers that come in to play.. which seemed normal..... if you want to read my lab results its under the previous post of confused.. heres my lab results post... posted today... thanks

Re: could a low TSH still be a hypothyroidism

There are many doctors that only focus on TSH and that is not right because the Ft4 and Ft3 test show the main circulating thyroid hormones. They have patients brainwashed into believing the TSH test is the Gold Standard. It makes me so sad to see people stay ill.

I have been a thyroid patient for 23 years and have seen many people go untreated because of the TSH test. It should be band IMO.
