A 38-year-old female asked:

Thyroid: my tsh last week was 5.97, days later it was 3.93. all other numbers and antibodies are within normal (not optimal) range. on average my tsh has always been close to 4. could these numbers be related to a miscarriage i had last month?

TSH: TSH changes with stress. I would say that a TSH should be rechecked at least 6 weeks after any stressful time.
