Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The TSH value mentioned above is high but not too high to consider you hypothyroid .The weight gain could be due to various other and diet related issues.

I would ask you not worry and plan a low carb and low fat diet.

Do go for a repeat test of TSH after two to three months and if the values appear high then placing you on medications would be a best choice.

Wish you good health.

Welcome to HCM,
From your report it seems that you are having thyroid.
But to confirm it is better to go for T3 and T4 blood level.
After all reports consult physician and confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.
Ok and bye.
