Are there any specific foods or products that can naturally enhance ones TSH levels? Would like to avoid a low dosage of medication if i can!

Are there any specific foods or products that can naturally enhance ones TSH levels? Would like to avoid a low dosage of medication if i can!

No: There are no such foods such as that. If your TSH level is low, that means your thyroid is overproducing thyroid hormone and that could be a goiter or other thyroid disease - you definitely need that checked and treated. If your thyroid hormone is low, then your TSH would be high. In that case, you need to take some form of thyroid replacement med - there are different options for that. ...Read more

I recently had a TSH test where my level was 4.86. I was pretty stressed and run-down at the time. Any chance it was a false positive as a result?

I recently had a TSH test where my level was 4.86.  I was pretty stressed and run-down at the time.  Any chance it was a false positive as a result?

Not too abnormal: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your TSH value while higher than normal does not mean that you have a disease or need treatment. Do discuss it with your doctor and you may opt to repeat the test. info at http://www.webmd.com/women/thyroid-stimulating-hormone-tsh ...Read more
