In brief: TSH

Thyroid stimulating hormone is part of the feedback control loop that connects the sensors in your brain and pituitary gland with the function of the thyroid.
If the thyroid is failing, your body may not be getting enough of the hormone effect (e.g. becoming hypothyroid) and your pituitary responds by sending the message to the thyroid to put out more. Find out why by seeing your endocrinologist.

In brief: TSH 10.4

Most likely that is high because the thyroid gland is not working well.
An alternative may be that the pituitary is producing too much TSH. Your doctor MUST follow this up and keep you informed.
