Dr. Philip A. Kern answered:

Could an elevation in one's tsh level be indicative of hyper/hypo thyroidism?

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism
When the thyroid makes too little hormone (T4 and T3), the pituitary makes more TSH to try to compensate. So an elevated TSH is indicative of a thyroid that has failed or is failing, and you may need to take levothyroxine. See your doctor.

We have case , femal patien , age 60 years, the TSH less than 0.05 while T4 in normal range , and she has not any symptom of thyroidism , is it ok ?

Subclinical hyperthy

A low TSH with a normal T4 and no symptoms is usually subclinical hyperthyroidism. She may have a multinodular goiter that is autonomously functioning, or very early Graves disease. A T3 level and free T4 level should be checked. There is a higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation despite the normal T4 level, but many endocrinologists would just follow her levels for progression.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

What should not eat thyroid stimulating hormone is very high?

Hypothyroid

Iodine
If your TSH is very high, you likely have hypothyroidism. Changing your diet will not affect your thyroid level, unless you are consuming an excess amount of iodine (excess iodine typically makes thyroid levels lower in the US).

Tsh thyroid stimulating hormone is 2.380 is that normal??I know it is suppost to be between 0.30 4.70 acceptable range but don't understand it still

Thyroid test

Thyroid_gland
tsh is a hormone released by the pitutary gland and is negatively cycled in response to thyroid hormone levels, high levels of thyroid cause a drop in tsh and vica versa. the range of TSH is affected by physiological factors such as sleep ,circadian variation, food intake and sleep but within the narrow range you quote there is also variations due to measurement called interassay variation

Dr. Susan Wingo answered:

Where is the thyroid-stimulating hormone produced?

Pituitary Gland

Hormones
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is made in the pituitary gland, which lies just below the brain. The brain and pituitary monitor circulating levels of thyroid hormone. If thyroid levels are low, the pituitary releases higher levels of TSH to get the thyroid gland to make more thyroid hormone. If thyroid levels are high, lower levels of TSH provide less stimulation to the thyroid.

How does thyroid stimulating hormone affect sexual reproduction?

Many Ways

Thyroid
Thyroid hormone can have many effects on reproduction. When the thyroid is too high or too low you may not ovulate. Even if you do ovulate the quality of ovulation may be impaired. Thyroid hormone can affect your milk hormone (prolactin) and cause that to be too high which can have similar effects.

What happens when thyroid stimulating hormone goes up?

TSH increase

Inflammation_of_the_thyroid
thyroid stimulation hormone (TSH) is released by the pituitary gland in response to the amount of thyroid hormone sensed in the blood. If the blood level of thyroid hormone is low then the pituitary increases the amount of TSH into the blood in order to get the thyroid to release more thyroid hormone. Therefore a rising or increasing TSH may indicated a failing or under functioning thyroid.
