Help reading lab work

I am new here, and have been reading to try and understand these labs. Can someone tell me what these levels mean? Do I have hypothyroid or Hashimoto's?

TSH 2.19 (it was 4.86 in July '12)

T4, FREE 1.1 0.8-1.8 ng/dL RGA
T3, FREE 3.1 2.3-4.2 pg/mL RGA
C-PEPTIDE 4.71 H 0.80-3.10 ng/mL RGA

Re: Help reading lab work

Your TSH is above 2 and your freeTs are on the low side so these along with symptoms (you didn't mention them but I'm assuming you have some cause you've had these tests taken) point towards hypoT. Your TPOAb was negative so that would say "no Hashi's" but you can still have it (you might test positive for Tg Ab or you may have Hashi's with no antibodies in your blood). Any case if you have symptoms I think you should get at least a trial period of thyroid meds to see if that'll help with them.
