In brief: If your

Pituitary is responsible for hypothyroidism, by definition your TSH will be low.
That's what causes the thyroid deficiency. If it is normal, and your free T4 is normal, you do not have hypothyroidism or are on replacement, possibly unnecessarily. Check w/your doctor or see an endocrinologist.
