Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to increase its production of thyroid hormones. These levels are normally low in adults, and when they increase it indicates that the thyroid may be underactive. Elevated levels can occur for many reasons, but most commonly it occurs as a result of an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. It is also common in people who have had a radioactive iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism.
In addition to this, some medications can also cause elevated TSH levels. The causes of elevated levels are not fully understood, but it is generally thought to be caused by an imbalance between the overproduction and underproduction of thyroid hormones. It has also been shown that stress hormones like cortisol may play a role in elevating these levels.
While elevated levels can be normal in some circumstances if they persist or are accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, and problems with your menstrual cycle it may be indicative of a more serious underlying issue like autoimmune disease or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
