Hair Loss Thyroid Issue

I have been dealing with thyroid issues for the last 3 yrs diagnosed with graves disease that went into remission 2ys ago for only a short time. I'm not sure what my numbers were in the beginning but my endo had commented that I was "really cooking". I have not seen an Endo for awhile and I am currently not taking any thyroid meds. My hair has been falling out at an extreme rate recent thyroid levels are TSH 3rd gen 0.042 and Free T4 0.925. At these levels am I now hypothyroid?

TSH is low - meaning likely recurrent hyper/Graves - hair loss can be seen with this.  Would check T3 as well w/ next labs.
