Brief Answer: If you have no other symptoms, that's fine. Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. If only the lab findings suggest low values which is not supported by clinical symptoms or findings, then controlling these results in future as suggested by your doctor is the right thing to do. However, if you have symptoms than could possibly be explained by the changes found on these tests, then you doctor should actively establish a working plan so as to further understand this in detail and provide a plan to address them. What were the reasons for undergoing these test? if they were simply routine then don't bother about them. If there are any other reasons, please let me know with the detailed results. I hope you find this helpful and addresses your query fully. Thank you for using our services and please feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. I wish you well. Dr. Ditah, MD

Brief Answer: No need to be concerned. Detailed Answer: Borderline doesn't mean abnormal. Also, if there are no symptoms, then there is just no reason to get too worried about this. Stay calm and follow up with your doctor as planned. A hypofunctioning thyroid would rarely not cause symptoms. You are doing just fine. I wish you well. Dr. Ditah, MD
