Ask doctor: If they have no complaints, I would repeat the tests to make sure that the lab did not make an error or get the samples mixed up with another person's. If tests were accurate, ask your doctor to look for signs of hypothyroidism(Hashimoto's) such as enlarged thyroid, fatigue, constipation , cold intolerance etc. On the other hand, this may turn out to be an unique case which defies common wisdom .
