If your TSH levels are 100 it means you are extremely hypothyroid. You need to consult with an endocrinologist and if you aren't already on thyroid replacement hormone, you need to be. The endocrinologist will probably do further testing to try to find the cause of the hypothyroidism.
You definetly need to see a doctor and find one that is on the board of thyroid...I googled and found a great doctor with 30 years experience. My TSH is 14 and I feel like I am slowly dying so I can't imagine how you feel. yes, a good range is from .5-2 and some can go to 3 or 4 but once you get to 5 or 6 your hypithyroid. When yous thyroid isn't functioning at its best your pituatary gland releasing TSH to stimulate the thyroid, so if your elevated that high then your thyroid is not functioning good or at all. Try Armour thryoid, Ive been on it for abou t6 weeks, still playing with the dosage but I am slowly feeling better. find a doc who will listen to you. Don't know what area you live in, but like said, I googled and found a site where theylisted the best thyroid doctors in the country....thryoid is tricky, you need a doctor who will listen to you. amy
Most likely, your TSH is going high because it's trying to get your thyroid to produce more hormones and apparently, your thyroid is not responding.
Have you had any other tests done besides TSH? What about FT3 and FT4? These are the actual thyroid hormones and give a much better picture of the whole situation than TSH does. If you have results for FT3 and FT4, please post them, along with the reference ranges, as these vary from lab to lab, so must come from your own lab report.
That will help members comment more fully on your specific situation.
It sounds like you are very hypo. Are you taking a thyroid replacement hormone? If so, which one, what dosage and for how long have you taken it?
Are the T3 and T4 tests for Free T3 and Free T4 or are they Total T3 and Total T4? They aren't the same tests. If your lab report doesn't specify, the tests will be for Total T3 and Total T4, which aren't as useful.
In addition, we need the reference ranges for the T3 and T4 as shown on your lab report. Reference ranges vary from lab to lab and have to come from your own report.
What, if any, symptoms do you have?
Once we have that information, we can better assess your situation.
