Blood Test Tsh 3rd Generation
Hypothyroid: A high TSH is consistent with primary hypothyroidism. You should have a free T4 level done. Lh is unrelated to thyroid. A low level could be related to medications, such as an oral contraceptive or other estrogen usage (or testosterone in a male). If your periods are regular, it is likely a lab error. ...Read more

My cmp blood test says TSH w/reflex to f4 is 4.44 miu/l (normal range is 0.4-4.5). Do I have hypothyroidism? I have sparse eyebrows on the outer third

If the TSH is low, that indicates the thyroid is overactive. Your doctor should discuss your results and what needs to be done. ...Read more
Depends.: Why was it done in the first place? Depending on the lab, it may be normal or low. If low, it needs to be repeated, along with other thyroid tests such as free t4. If the thyroid is enlarged, this TSH is consistent with early hashimoto or graves disease, but if it is normal in size, these diseases are very unlikely. ...Read more
Depends on med: It depends on which type of medication, those containing T3 will change the TSH quite rapidly whilet4 will take longer.
