No. TSH at low conc: This is designed to check accurately the TSH levels at low concentrations. This helps people to diagnose thyroid disorders more accurately.

Subclinical hyperthy: The TSH is low, otherwise your thyroid levels are normal. This is called subclinical hyperthyroidism. You may have very mild graves disease, a "hot" thyroid nodule, or autonomously functioning multinodular goiter. Usually when it is this mild, we continue observation. ...Read more
