Re: is a tsh level of 11 hyper or hypo?

TSH = thyroid stimulating hormone, its a pitutary hormone.

The higher it is... the more your pitutary gland is begging the thyroid gland to make more thyroid hormone (and for some reason , your thyroid gland can't make enough thyroid hormones).

T4 & T3 are actual thyroid hormones.

Free T4 & Free T3 are the measure of thyroid hormones that can be utilized by the cells in your body.

You need to get those Free T's tested too, make sure they test both, and make sure they are both labeled as free.

Optimal TSH is low, around 1.0 (many doctors think much higher is ok, its NOT).

Optimal for the Free T's is in the middle to UPPER part of the 'normal range', NOT the lower part.(many doctors think anywhere in the normal range is good enough its NOT, unless you don't mind feeling like you don't mind feeling like you are 100 years old).
