Good evening. I've been suffering from whole body swelling. My TSH is low, and my free T4 is lower on each subsequent test. Is this a thyroid issue?

In brief: NOT REALLY

it sounds more like a PITUITARY condition.
The pituitary gland (called the "master gland" is located below the base of the brain and REGULATES thyroid function AND the functions of other glands as well! Hope this helps! Dr Z
