How To Increase Tsh Secretion Naturally
My TSH was 35 two months bck, i was takin 50 units per day n now my value is 7.10, should I increase my dosage to 75?
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

TSH: TSH is produced by the pituitary gland. It stimulates production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid.
