Brief Answer: Unlikely due to thyroid Detailed Answer: If your TSH, T3 and T4 are within normal limits, it is extremely unlikely that your symptoms are due to hyperthyroidism. Thyroid related blood tests like these are usually very accurate and reliable. Thee fact that they are not abnormal effectively rules out hyperthyroidism. Excessive sweating, hair loss and imbalance can be due to various other conditions as well. It would be worth investigating the reason for these symptoms. In this context, endocrinologists run special tests based on comprehensive history and physical examination. To name a few: IGF1, salivary cortisol, plasma fractionated metanephrines The choice of tests depends on detailed in-person assessment because they are difficult to interpret without correlating them with symptoms
