Good day,
Noted your concern. With the reports you have provided, you seems to have Hashimoto;s thyroiditis. Eventhough your TSH has settled now, there is a slight chance of progressing to Hypothyroidism in the future. You may have to repeat a Free T4 and TSH after 3-4 months.

Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is an auto immune condition ad the alopacia areata which you have also is of auto immune type. They can co exist.

You have to repeat TSH and Free T4 after 3 moths and then we can decide on further treatment
