With low TSH levels hyperthyroid is off the table right? What other issues, full normal blood panel, could cause a major weight loss?

In brief: Low tsh?
Normal TSH values fall within a range.
If the TSH is low, or in other words, below the lower limit of normal, it may suggest your thyroid is overactive. When your body produces too much thyroid hormone, the brain tries to compensate by making less tsh, and therefore the levels show up low.

In brief: No
Tsh is the hormone secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain.
When the pituitary senses the blood thyroid level is too low it secretes more to stimulate the thyroid to release. Secondary hypothyroid will usually present with a low TSH but is rare. Sorry but you may have it wrong.
