What Is The Drug For The Thyroid?

Hello Serta, Thank you for the question.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain which functions to regulate thyroid hormone production in the thyroid gland. The production of the TSH hormone in the pituitary is influenced by the level of thyroid hormone in the body and is influenced by several other things. Normal TSH levels range from 0.4-5 mIU / L. If your TSH level is high, you must first know what the cause is because treatment and subsequent treatment are not necessarily the same. TSH examination must also be accompanied by other thyroid hormone tests (T3 and T4). High TSH levels can be caused by:
high stress levels or other causes of the increase in the hormone cortisol
Please consult further with an internal medicine specialist regarding the results of this examination. The doctor needs to know the complaints you are experiencing and conduct an examination on you. The doctor may perform further blood tests to find out the cause. After determining the cause, the new doctor can determine the appropriate treatment for you. Treatment cannot be given based solely on the results of laboratory tests.
Hope this information is helpful.
