In brief: Hypothyroidism
Some scientific studies show that the optimal range for TSH is 0.
8-2.1 in fact a TSH >2.5 is associated with Insulin resistance, as the TSH increases (above 2.5) the LDL goes up and the HDL goes down. There are countless patients walking around with undiagnosed hypothyroidism because the normal range of TSH is way too broad.

In brief: Not sure if any.
The TSH is normal so it might be a variation of normal or euthyroid.
It also might be a developing thyroid condition, but there would be symptoms, like fatigue. It would be wise to see your doctor to follow up.
