Brief Answer:
You need free T4 estimation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through your findings in detail.

Serum total T4 level is mildly decreased.You need free T4 level estimation.Free T4 level is more important because it is biologically available form.
Serum total T3 level is within normal limit.
TSH level is towards lower side.It may be due to mild hyperthyroidism.
Your condition also need clinical correlation.
So,please get free T4 level done for further treatment.
Ultrasound of thyroid glands should also be done. Radionucide scan can be done after assessment.

Treatment depend upon findings.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

TSH level 0.01 with elevated T4 level indicates hyperthyroidism.It is important to know what medicines you are taking.Change may be due to drug response.
