What causes elevated TSH? - Online Doctor Chats
result is 5.85
i am 32 year old and 82 kg
i feel little uneasiness in the throat as well
does that mean goiter?
i am not a thyroid patient earlier
It is a little higher
it is not goiter
if left untreated
TSH should not be more than 2 for my age right?
It should not be more than 5.5
that is right
ok thanks for confirmation
do i need to get some scan for uneasiness in throat?
you could get a thyroid scan done
whil palpating i didn't find any nodules or lump sort of..
no harm in it
any thing do i need to take care of to maintain tsh below 5.5?
Yes, but that requires detailed evaluation
You may have to repeat the test in 6 weeks time
or is it like it will go on increasing?
If it is still high, you might have to start on Thyroid supplements
i did this test in may 2013 and at that time it was 5.26
please do the test now
if it comes in the border say 5.5. do i need to start supplements?
you should start treatment then
thank you doctor
i will repeat the test
thanks a lot for your time
thank you too
