Brief Answer:
may be self limiting autoimmune thyroiditis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Significantly increased concentrations most frequently indicate thyroid autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto thyroiditis and Graves disease.
I recommend thyroid ultrasound to confirm autoimmune thyroiditis.
These tests are of value when a child is found to have an elevated TSH level, as a very high level of antibodies strongly suggests a diagnosis of autoimmune thyroiditis.
Thyroiditis is a common condition that is usually mild and self-limiting.
Treatment depends on the type of thyroiditis (Hashimoto thyroiditis, Subacute thyroiditis, Painless thyroiditis, Suppurative thyroiditis, Riedel thyroiditis) and the clinical presentation, but in most cases no treatment is necessary.
Hope i helped you.

I have 2 thryroid nodules, thyroid antibodies very low vitamin d levels but TSH tests come back normal. Doctors say I do not need treatment for thyroid problems because TSH levels are normal. I am tired all the time, have tachycardia frequently, muscle aches nervousness . Doctors say it is panic disorder.

Hi, I am a 31 year old female and am a little worried about thyroid levels in body.
My report shows TSH level of 3.57
T3 serum 3.27 and T4 1.12
My doctor told me these are normal but I even have thyroid symptoms, I get tired very fast, irregular periods and brittle nails and hair. I am more worried about these coz I want to conceive and from what ever I have searched the apt levels for TSH is under 2 ideally. Do u think I should take any medication for this die changes??
