Brief Answer:
About the TSH value;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone through your concern in details.

The TSH you reported is low and it means that the Levothyroxine dose is high.

You need to lower the dose, from 112.5 mcg to 100 mcg.
Check TSH after 6 weeks to be sure that the dose is the right one.

Please discuss with your treating doctor also.

Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta
