Two possibilities: The great majority of cases with low TSH are due to high thyroid hormone levels from hyperthyroidism or taking too much thyroid hormone. Rarely, a pituitary problem can lead to low tsh. In the first case, there will usually be symptoms of hyperthyroidism and in the second, symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Low TSH: means your thyroid hormone is to high.

What happen if your TSH hormone is very very low?

See a doctor: A 'very very low' level of TSH indicates a significantly over-active thyroid gland (assuming you are not taking thyroid replacement.) this is a significant health risk, you need to see an endocriniologist or good internal med doctor. If you have low TSH and are taking thyroid hormone replacement, you may be taking too much.

Three possibilities: 1) either your pituitary is defective and unable to make TSH or not being asked to by your brain due to a problem w/the thyroid thermostat --- or, 2) your thyroid is making too much thyroid hormone and there's a natural suppression of TSH secretion. You could also be taking too much thyroid replacement medication.
