Here is an excerpt:

 

 

Note that the authors define intermediate TSH as 1.14-2.52 and high as 2.5-3.5. These values are usually deemed normal by the reference range of the lab and most doctors.

 

"Women with intermediate or high levels of thyrotropin (1.14 - 2.52 mIU/L and 2.5 - 3.5 mIU/L, respectively) had hazard ratios for CHD death of 1.41 and 1.69 compared with women who had levels of thyrotropin in the lower range of normal (0.50 - 1.4 mIU/L). This trend was statistically significant in women (p = 0.005) but not in men. "
