TSH becomes elevated even though the T4 and T3 may still be within the "normal" range. This rise in TSH represents the pituitary gland's response to a drop in circulating thyroid hormone; it is usually the first indication of thyroid gland failure...since you are already under treatment nothing to worry... Be in a regular fallow up with your physician they will do the needful.
