Mildly elevated TSH
, what are your symptoms?
Hello Mr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
I took a look through your reports. I see that your TSH is slightly high. But more important than the blood work is YOUR symptoms. What made you get the blood work done in the first place? Have you had any symptoms of a weak thyroid (hypothyroidism
)? Feeling cold
, gaining weight? Excessive fatigue?
The treatment will depend on your symptoms. If you ARE having symptoms of hypothyroidism, then you will need a thyroid med like levothyroxine
. On the other hand if you do not have any symptoms, then we can afford to wait and recheck the blood work in 6 months.
I hope this helps. Take Care,
