Doctor :   The TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) level is especially important in determining whether the condition is due to a problem in the thyroid gland or in the part of the brain that stimulates thyroid function
User :   how can i reduce it
Doctor :   u need to consult endocrinologist
User :   can i know d reason y is it lik that
Doctor :   If the TSH level in the blood is high, the abnormality is within the thyroid gland. A high TSH level suggests that the thyroid gland is not responding properly to the stimulating effect of the TSH on the thyroid gland
User :   can i know d reason y is it lik that
Doctor :   If the TSH level in the blood is low, the abnormality is within the brain or pituitary gland in the brain. It suggests that the pituitary is not releasing adequate amounts of TSH to stimulate the thyroid gland, despite levels of thyroid hormone low enough that it should do so.
User :   mine z high
