    Unhappy TSH Result

    What does a result of 0.112 mean?

    Re: TSH Result

    Well it depends. Usually it means hyperthyroidism (= overactive thyroid). If you are on thyroid sypplement for hypothyroidism (= underactive thyroid) and have no hyperthyroid symptoms then it really means nothing. It could also mean secondary hypoT (the least likely scenario).

    Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid issue before? Taking any medication for one? Do you have any symptoms? Any case you need to have actual thyroid levels (FT4 and FT3) and take a look at your symptoms to see what's really going on.

    You need to get your freeTs (FT4 and FT3) checked too. You shouldn't adjust your medication based on TSH alone. If your freeTs are high in the range (or above it) you may need to decrease the dose a bit, if you're low in the range you'd need an increase (despite low TSH).
