My TSH 3 months ago was tested at .78 when it usually had been 1.95. Now my doc wants a retest. What could be going on here? Is my GF, low carb diet working? Or was it the Brazil nuts and sea salt with kelp (that I sort of quit) or something else?

I would wager that it was the iodine and selenium that did it. The former would increase T4, the latter would increase the conversion of T4 to T3, both of which I believe feedback to inhibit TSH release. Congratulations.
