Thanks for consulting us.
Yes, your TSH level is definitely very high & this need to be worked up.
I suggest you should consult an endocrinologist he/ she will examine you especially your thyroid gland & recommend some more tests like free T4 to see how much is your thyroid hormone level? You will then be prescribed medicine to lower your TSH levels if required.
In addition this course of action is also likely to influence your lipid profile positively as thyroid hormone controls body's metabolism.
Hope I have provided you with the desired response. Please feel free to write back if you have any question.
wish you good health.
Best Regards

Answered by Dr. Kulsoom Qureshi 20 hours later
I have seen all your reports.
Your LDL is slightly on the higher side and needs to be controlled with a proper diet and exercise.
You need to exercise daily for 40-50 minutes. In addition , the following dietary modifications need to be made:
a. Restrict oil, butter, mayonnaise, junk and fried food and excess of refined sugar
b. Have plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
c. Prefer whole grains rather than processed foods

Your blood glucose levels are currently normal and the above mentioned dietary interventions will help you bring then further in control.

Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
