Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that you have to send the whole report with normal reference ranges for interpretation as there is different reference range for every lab .

Still your TSH seems to be in higher range so there is a possibility that you can be having hypothyroidism. . ESR is raised but the exact reason is not known as it is very non specific may be due to some previous infection .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
