Hi, I've recently shocked my doc with my thyroid results. They found that my Free T3, Free T4 levels were normal but my TSH levels were 103!!! I also have slightly higher cholesterol (I never use to have high cholesterol).
I feel quite normal mostly so I was a bit shocked.
Can someone provide advice as to what could have potentially caused this? I.e. Could it be cancer? I also read somewhere that some lady got PCOS cuz of this. Does a high TSH cause that?
Would retest levels - usually w/ TSH this high the T4 and T3 are low - this can be seen with very inconsistent thyroid medication intake, but certainly needs followup and starting/adjusting thyroid medication replacement. It does not cause PCOS but PCOS may increase the risk of hypothyroidism.
