Hair problem. Done thyroid, hemoglobin, glucose, cholesterol tests done. What does the report indicate?

If you could spare few minutes and give your valueable advise on the figures in the attached report. Basically my wife seems to have some hair problem (Hair is not in a very bad condition but they are little weak from the root) otherwise physically she seems to be all right (Not fatty, active). I thought hair problem could be due to thyroid and this is the reason I thought to get her tested. I got the report and TSH level (though T3 and T4 are not given in the report) seems to be going higher (5.76) that from the figure looks like that this is hypo thyroid symptom, also here Haemeglobin level is just on the line 11.5 (though not anemic but should be more than 12).. Report for other tests seem to be fine like Glucose and Cholestrol... I am little worried when I looked at the figure for TSH and Hameglobin. Now a days people are making lot of mistakes by unncessary getting themselves treated whereas there is actually no need to do so since by good life style these kind of problems could be ignored and now a days each of is in some way not perfecly all right from health point of is just the matter to get yourself tested and then things come...more you know..more trouble comes, this is what I honestly think and same case applies to us. I am thinking whether I should really go for a treatment for Thyroid or not depending on current figures or would you suggest some ? I don t have a baby and planning for a one, so from that perspective also I was little worried to see those figures....

Hello. Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic. Tsh and hb are borderline and fairly OK. The normal tsh population curve is slightly skewed to right side. I mean that borderline cases might be OK and need not be treated. In case of any symptoms like weight gain, constipation, lethargy, intolerance to cold you might think. But from your post I feel she is active and fit. Coming to hb. You might start folic acid asap if you are planning to conceive. This is one vitamin we need before conception for a healthy baby with healthy brain. Give her iron rich foods like spinach, jaggery. Hair loss could have many causes. Other hormones involved could be a high testosterone or local causes or some autoimmune skin disease affecting the scalp. Hope I helped. If hair loss is more and troubling you then take her to a dermatologist.
