Huh?: I am having trouble understanding the question. High TSH would be an "abnormal" thyroid test and would indicate that hashimoto's is not in remission. This could cause your symptoms. If your TSH is normal i would suggest a visit to the doctor for evaluation as rapid weight loss or accelerating wt loss is not generally a good thing.
