TSH of 6.50 is...: A TSH level of 6.50 is too high, but there is no clear question being submitted here. If one's TSH was even higher in the past, then this would be an improvement. If one's TSH was lower in the past, then this would be a worsening. One's primary care doctor or one's endocrinologist can evaluate... and help answer the patient's true question, whatever that question might be.
