In brief: Mild

Your TSH is slightly over the upper limit of normal.
This may or may not merit treatment. Please see your doctor.

In brief: Suggest hypothyroid

Depending on what part of the country you are in different labs have slightly different normals.
However anything above 4 is usually suggestive of hypothyroidism. If you are having symptoms such as being cold when everyone else feels warm, or constantly fatigued and experience frequent constipation, you may have hypothyroidism or low functioning thyroid. Check with your primary care.
