A 60-year-old female asked:

Son,35,had cbc, & thyroid was off -tsh was 4.76 (high) & t4 was 1.2 (normal range)-does he need treatment for this? my doc did not give him anything, could this happen from stress? could it go back on its own? all other results were normal/in range?

Need Normal values for TSH. In most labs this would not e very "high". Why was TSH done in first place, Discussing with Dr. is next step. Son will have to give you permission to talk to Dr.
