Brief Answer:
Thyroid profile is suggesting hyperthyroidism

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

While supplementing for thyroid, we need to keep the dose adequate so that there arent symptoms of hyperthyroid or hypothyroid. The thyroid profile is suggesting hyperthyroid. I will suggest that you repeat the thyroid profile from another laboratory. Also monitor if you are experiencing symptoms of hyperthyroid or hypothyroid. Both are needed to guide the medicine dose.
If TSH continues to be low, then a reduction of Thyronorm dose is needed.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
