I hope you're cared for by a thyroidologist or endocrinologist. You had a very rare combination of both Graves disease which causes hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's disease which causes hypothyroidism. Your TSH is abnormally low indicating high thyroid activity??from thyroid supplement. Both of your thyroid disorders are autoimmune disorders. A lowish wbc can be from an autoimmune process
