Do these lab results indicate a problem?

I'm a man on a mission. It's going on about two years of many many many symptoms, which all seem to indicate something with the thyroid or disorder associated with the adrenal system. Doctors all say (3 so far) tests are normal, and won't treat me. I love asking the question "what's normal?" Anyway, here are my results.
Free T3 3.36 (1.45-3.48)
Free T4 0.96 (0.58-1.64)
TSH 0.84 (0.49-4.67)
I'm confused about the TSH being low, but everything else being on the high end. What does this mean

  • Dont know anything about thyroid conditions but I read something really interesting about thyroid stuff today at http://www.naturalchoicesforyou.com/site/680805/page/594047. Though it mostly talks about Fibromyalgia, it mentions thyroid problems being linked with insulin resistance and mentions the T4 and T3.To be tested for insulin resistance a GTT is conducted. Most doctors dont recognise the condition or its serious consequences. I kept being told it was nothing to worry about and now am paying the price for not investigating on my own and reading all my test results personally.Agape,Searchingsam
