More info needed: More information is needed in order to answer the question. How old is the child? Why was the test ordered? What other tests were ordered? Has the child been evaluated by an endocrinologist? ...Read more
High TSH: A TSH of 6 is only slightly high. If you feel well, you may not need to do anything. If your TSH continues to rise and your ft4 falls, they your thyroid is probably failing and you should begin taking levothyroxine. Iodine deficiency can cause a goiter and elevated tsh, but i-deficiency is very rare; i is plentiful in our diet in many forms. ...Read more
It's not: Dangerous, but it's not normal and, if confirmed by repeat testing, should be treated with brand name T4 replacement until your levels are normalized. Your doctor can do this easily. ...Read more
My TSH level is 6.39 range is (.30-5.5) & lipoprotein (lpa)is 91.83 immunoturbido. Range is less than 30.0 mg/dl & homocysteine is 26.18 range is 6-25?
More info: Ask your doctor to get a free t3, (liothyronine) free t4, total cholesterol, ldl, hdl, triglyceride level and glucose. The homocysteine is meaningless you may be thyroid deficient which commonly causes dyslipidemia, which you probably have. Be sure your blood sample is obtained fasting for 12 hours. ...Read more
My TSH level cum 6.03.Three months back it was 3.08.But itcum mostly 4. 7 since 6 month. Wat u think shold i need therapy or wait to check.Antib norma?
May re do the test: A TSH level of 6.03 suggests thyroid deficiency, however it would help get free T4 level done and may be TSH re done to make sure the result is accurate. It is not an emergency, but you should keep your appointments with your doctor and follow his/her advice. ...Read more
Probably hypo: Hi. In all likelihood, you have subclinical hypothyroidism. It would help to know your free T4. There are VERY rare conditions (emphasis on VERY) due to either TSH-producing pituitary adenomas or mutations in the thyroid receptor where elevations in TSH are seen and the patient does not have subclinical hypothyroidism, but playing the odds, go with hypo. Checking TPO and Tg antibodies may help too ...Read more

Hello sir/madam , my wife's TSH level is 6 . And she is also poitive with cmv igg,hsv igg and rubella igg. What to do?
Return to the doctor: Lab test results are just numbers, without much meaning unless one can see the whole picture of the patient's situation. Thus, a patient should return to her doctor for evaluation and treatment of thyroid problems. Having a TSH level of 6 may mean her thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormone (which then causes the brain to respond by producing more TSH, thus causing a high TSH level). ...Read more
My TSH level is 6.920 and T4 is 0.97, tpo is 13.My age is 24 and I am married.I'm having irregular periods.Is that going to be a problem?
My TSH level was 6.5 on my tests but my other thyroid tests came normal (t3 (liothyronine) and T4 i believe) what does this mean? And what could be causing this?
See below: T3 (liothyronine) and T4 can be normal if your protein level is high. These are total T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels. Both hormones are transported on proteins. So, if your TSH is high, your doctor should be running a free T4 (not protein bound) to confirm that your thyroid level really is low. Otherwise, there are a few other reasons just the TSH can be high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a TSH level of 6.4u/ml and free T4 of 10pmol/l cause severe hypothyroid symptoms such as weight gain, extreme fatigue, aches, intolerance to cold?
Both results in the: Abnromal range but not by too much. In any case the levels are indicative of thyroid deficiency and could lead to your symptoms. Please see your doctor for replacement therapy. ...Read more
My TSH level cum 6 n hb 11 n vit d 16.Can i start taking vit d n hb supplements as most of the time i feel burning in my food canal, burping n gas.Sug?
not clear: Your question is not clear. If you have a TSH level of 6, that would be high and could indicate a low thyroid level. You should have a repeat TSH and free T4 level done. The vitamin d level of 16 would also be low and indicates that you should take vit d supplements. This should not cause burning in your swallowing tube or gas. You may need other testing for this, possibly for gallbladder problem. ...Read more
My T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are 102.06 and 5.6 resp. and my TSH level is 6.23 Is this indicative of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism?
Probably: Hi. It's probably early/mild hypothyroidism. Definitely NOT hyperthyroidism. And please ask your doc to drop using total T4 and T3 (liothyronine). Measure FREE T4 (and I'd say free T3 (liothyronine) too, but that's still debated among endo's). But your TSH is elevated, and you clearly don't have a pituitary thyrotroph adenoma or thyroid hormone resistance. You're early/mild hypothyroidism till proven otherwise. ...Read more
