Ok so my drs office called with my results from a thyroid test a couple days ago and the results say thyroid is high. Does that automatically mean I have hyperthyroidism? Or is it possible to get these results and it be nothing? I can't get back in to the drs until the second of January...and I don't want to go google crazy and freak myself out :( any info would be appreciated :(

Was your TSH levels high? I had a hyperthyroid with multiple nodules and goiter thyroid. My TSH levels were .003. Basically nothing. A low TSH level indicates hyper and a high TSH indicates hypo. It's confusing.

Oh and I had it completely removed back in June and levels went way up to 6.79 and eventually lowered to normal range after 2 months on levothyroxine.

I won't know the details until the second

Without the details, you can't know.

Thyroidisms are so freaking confusing! It depends in what exactly the levels are.

Oh really? Could it be simple to fix? I know they aren't crazy off because the nurse that read me the results said the Dr didn't put a urgent message in there like it was something I need to be seen for right away

My husband has hyperthyroidism - his thyroid basically does not work at all. Anyway, after his blood test, he had another appointment to come in go over the results but since his thyroid wasn't working, they called him the same day they got the results and made him begin medication that same day. 

If your numbers were too high, I'm assuming that's hypothyroidism and something different. I don't really know anything about that.

Hi!  I have hyperthyroidism and my TSH was very low. I know others said that a high reading indicates hypothyroidism, which is true. I know it's so hard to wait. My levels were really low and my PCP didn't want to start me on medicine without seeing anEndocrinologist first. The waiting was so hard. Good luck!
