High serum tsh- hypothyroidism

I have recently got my blood test result and the paper has shown an exclamation mark on the serum tsh level because my level is 6.99 when it should be up to 4.2. This has really messed me up mentally because I don’t think anything runs in my family and I am only 19 years of age. I have an appointment with an advanced clinical practitioner on Wednesday however the stuff I have searched up about a high tsh level really upset me, things including high infertility rate and losing hair. High miscarriage rates…. This really upsets me because for the past year I have been losing loads of hair… does anyone know if there is a cure or if you can reverse this because I don’t want to be on tablets for the rest or my life I am really stressed and anxious right now I have a weak mindset after this
