Hi Doctor, My sister's tsh level is 7.19 and t3 and t4 is within the range. Does she have to take thyronorm tablets as doc has prescribed for the same.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Usually thyroxine is prescribed only when TSH levels go beyond 10 mU/L, or there are troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism are present even at lower than 10 mU/L TSH. Another situation is if her Anti TPO antibodies are more than normal then also it is prescribed. At 7.19 mU/L there is no reason to recommend Thyroxine (unless above is true). Thanks.
