T3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) T4 or reverse T3 (liothyronine): Even though the TSH may be nml, you could still clinically be suffering from hypothyroidism. You should get a few more tests if you have the symptoms ipof hypothyroidism.

Human body temperature can be how low and still be fine?

95-96: As long as it is not a rapid drop, you can live with a lower body temperature that 98.6 and be just fine. It is like heart rate and breathing. My normal heart rate is 45-55, but if my mom had that, she would be in the icu. As long as it is gradual and your norm, it is fine.
