Brief Answer:
Yes, probably hyperthyroidism.

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully and it is suggestive of a possible hyperthyroidism. However, i hate treating results as it must be justified by symptoms. Persons with hyperthyroidism are very active, might report weight loss, often feel hot when others are not, have loose stools or diarrhea, sweaty palms, etc. I will recommend that you report whether you are having any such symptoms and get examined so as to avoid being treated solely on the basis of a blood test that might not be totally justified.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
