Hi mahesh

Rising TSH with normal T3 and T4 means incipient hypothyroidism. Although your weight has decreased 13kgs in last one year, with 125 thyronorm, the T3 and T4 have come to normal levels. But still as TSH is high presently i would recommend to continue on Thyronorm 125 mg for 6 more months and then reassess
