Creatinine is 1.1 and my TSH is 6.18 does this indicate a thyroid problem?

Just received my bloodwork test results. My BUN is 25 , my Creatinine is 1.1 and my TSH is 6.18. I’m taking 50 mcg of Levothyroxine. Does this indicate a thyroid problem or something wrong with my kidney. Last year everything was normal and I’ve been taking Levothyroxin for around 8 years. Does my dose simply need to be increased or am I in big trouble..

  1. Hi,
    Ranges are considered norma except for bun a bit high and TSH is indicating your thyroid is still underactive and needs a change in your current dosage by your doctor.

  2. Hi
    Your dose simply needs to be increased, I recommend rechecking your dose every 6 month
    Good Luck

  3. Hi..
    High TSH indicates you need a higher dose of your Thyroid medication..
    Also BUN and Creatinine levels are at higher limit so you need to keep a watch on it, although you do not need to worry about it..

    Hope this helps..
