People on long-term thyroxine with a high or suppressed TSH are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, dysrhythmias and fractures. People with a low but not suppressed TSH did not have an increased risk of these outcomes in this study. It may be safe for patients treated with thyroxine to have a low but not suppressed serum TSH concentration.


Report of  Above Study by Irish Medical Times
Thyroxine safe with low TSH levels
http://www.imt.ie/news/uncategorized/2010/03/thyroxine-safe-with-low-tsh-levels.html
These results show for the first time that it may be safe for patients taking long-term thyroxine replacement therapy to have a low but not suppressed TSH level.
These patients do not show an increased risk of suffering from heart disease, bone fractures or abnormal heartbeat patterns. This means that patients may be able to take slightly higher doses of thyroxine than are currently recommended without having an adverse effect on their health.


Managing subclinical hypothyroidism
http://www.australianprescriber.com/magazine/22/6/132/4
Occasionally, patients feel better on thyroxine replacement therapy only when serum TSH is reduced to below the reference range. This seems to occur when the dose of thyroxine is adjusted to bring
the serum TSH concentration into, rather than below, the reference range. In this situation, several of our consultants recommend monitoring the T3 level to ensure that thyroxine replacement does not
result in hyperthyroidism.

I have been able to bring this up in google books and actually read a lot of it.The index is clickable like a PDF. I'm on satellite intetnet and it's raining so I'm not able to make sure it's working but I encourage anyone to try to read this.
You should see the book cover then scroll down for the contents.
