TSH stands for thyroid stimulating hormone and gives you an idea of what is happening in your pituitary but not other tissues in your body.
Other thyroid lab tests should be used in addition to TSH to shed light on what is happening in the body.
Other thyroid tests include:
– Free T3
– Free t4
– Reverse T3
– Sex hormone binding globulin
