Hello there..... I went through your query..... I can understand your concern... A value above the normal range usually indicates that the thyroid is underactive. This indicates hypothyroidism. When the thyroid isn’t producing enough hormones, the pituitary gland releases more TSH to try to stimulate it...... Consult your Physician for further evaluation and treatment.....
