    TSH is a cheap and cost effective tests that tell you nothing. The thyroid hormone is called T4, but your body needs to convert T4 to T3 in order for your body to use it. If your body is deficient of selenium then your body doesn't convert the T4 to T3,  That is what you need to know !) is your body producing the thyroid hormone . 2) If your body is converting the thyroid hormone to the usable T3. Your body can be making tons of T4 , but what good is it if your body can"t convert and use?  That is the work of diagnosis that most doctors don't do. Medicating symptoms that you don't know the cause is just plain dangerous. Don't accept a lot of symptoms as a fact of life that is just really  poor healthcare

    If your TSH is elevated, it indicates low thyroid.

    TSH, thyroid stimulating hormone, is produced in response to low blood thyroxin levels and is produced by your pituitary gland in the brain, 

    The idea is that, if your brain is producing lots of TSH, it’s because your brain is interpreting that your body has low thyroxin.

    The brain then produces more TSH to stimulate thyroxin production and raise blood levels of thyroxin to normal.

    TSH tests are limited as far as diagnostics, but it is the traditional test for hypothyroid diagnosis. Fortubately other tests are now available that help get a better picture of the problem.
