Your TSH level is more than normal .A high TSH level is suggestive of hypothyroidism for which you need to be supplemented with thyroxine. Thyobuild is a brand name for thyroxine.In hypothyroidism the thyobuild is required for lifelong as said by your consultant .And coming to the above tests he asked for ,may suggest you the causes and effects of hypothyroidism.
Hair transplant is less preferable in pseudopelade of brocq.
Take care.
