Tsh 98.4

Thats no typo
My physician was suspicious that my cholestrol levels could be due to thyroid.

So she asked me to do a TSH test and thats the result I got.
She started me on Synthroid 100 MCG.

Has anyone experienced TSH at this level.
If so what dosage level are you at.

Re: Tsh 98.4

Dosage is based loosely on body weight and degree of thyroid failure. TSH really has little to do with it. Someone with a starting TSH of 100 and someone starting at 5 each usually ends up on roughly the same dose.
The average full-replacement dose for an adult is 120 mcgs of synthetic med or 120 mgs of natural dessicated.

TSH has very little to do with thyroid function. It's a pituitary hormone. The med replaces the actual thyroid hormone.
