I asked for a copy of both results. The Dr. told my husband they found that his thyroid is "slightly enlarged and he has a small nodule, but nothing to worry about" He will see him again in September.
I looked at his Lab work and his TSH is 134.0. This concerns me. According to the lab report his TSH in 2008 was 154.8. Does this seem ok to you? I am very uneasy about waiting another 4 months to recheck this. Should my husband see a Endocrinologist?? If so how do we do this?
Any help would be great
I am a novice at hormone problems because I don't have them yet even though I have hashimoto's. I have NEVER in my entire life heard of a TSH this high. Maybe it's just me. Yeah, I'd go see an Endo. Definitely. With those symptoms he sounds as if he might have hypothyroidism, but normal TSH is from .3 - 3.0 so I don't understand why someone would have a level of 154.
I just googled this though and apparently it is possible for TSH to be this high but something needs to be done ASAP because from what I'm reading, it could be dangerously high. Definitely explains his symptoms though. Google this TSH level and you'll see what I mean.
