I've had two miscarriages and have gone through a bunch of tests, HSG, hysteroscopy, bloodwork and I got a call on Tuesday that my Thyroid levels were elevated. Does anyone have any experience with elevated TSH? If so, what was the course of action, medication? Any good results? I'm hoping it can be controlled by meds, but it's hard to find any good reference material out on the web regarding elevated TSH and multiple miscarriage....

I am sorry for your losses
I do not know much about meds to help with TSH levels. That said, if you post on this link (there are 4 boards, post on at least 3 of them) http://forums.haveababy.com/index.php?showforum=4 an RE will answer your question within the hour. (it is free) Just give as much med history as you can..
I have hypothyroidism which means I have elevated TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) levels. I take Levoxyl (or Synthroid, Levothyroxine) to regulate. I feel really good on my meds. Before I knew I had thyroid problems my hair was dry and falling out, my skin was really dry and I was soooo tired all the time.
Just so you know, I had controlled (by medication) hypothyroidism before I even got PG the first time so it can be done! All I do is take a pill everyday in the AM. I dont know if high TSH can cause losses but it would be a good idea to go to an Endocrinologist. They deal specifically with hormones and Thyroid issues. Hypothyroidism is very common and very fixable. I am sorry for your losses and I hope you can get your thyroid issues fixed soon. You might want to check out the book "Living Well with Hypothyroidism". It will teach you all you want to know, it is written by a woman (cant remember her name) who had hypothroidism. Good luck!
