High TSH levels may be caused by:

An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).
Hashimotos thyroiditis is the most common cause of primary hypothyroidism.

A pituitary gland tumor that is making too much TSH. This is uncommon.

Not taking enough thyroid hormone medicine for treatment of an underactive thyroid gland.
Consult Physician....
