This is Dr. David
a TSH level of 9.680 means you are hypothyroid or have low thyroid hormone levels
your TSH levels should be between 0.3 and 3.0
TSH levels higher than 3.0 means your thyroid hormone levels are too low and that your pituitary gland is making more TSH or thyroid stimulating hormones to try to stimulate your thyroid gland to produce more thyroid hormone.
you should ask to be referred to see an endocrinology doctor specialist.
I see an endocrinology doctor regularly myself
