Well your TSH is high, which means your thyroid probably need some help, but I don't know what those other numbers are for :P

0.40-4.50 mIU/L H  is the reference levels from the lab. A TSH over 4.5 mIU/L H means you are hypothyroid. A reading under 0.40 mIU/L H means your hyperthyroid.  Your doctor should start treating you for hypothyroidsim since your 8.27 TSH is higher then 4.50.
