Brief Answer:
Please start taking Tab Thyroxine 50 mcg once/day.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX HI! your reports are suggestive of sub clinical hypothyroidism. Though you have not mentioned about your symptoms but you must start the treatment. Again, as you have not mentioned your body weight we would like to put you on low dose to start with. You can start with Thyroxine 50 mcg and recheck your thyroid profile after 6 weeks. then we can titrate the dose according to the reports and your clinical status. Regards!

Brief Answer:
Thyroxine 75 mcg as per your weight.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX I think 75 mcg is the right dose for you. As you are symptomatic I think it is better to start the treatment. Thyroxine replacement is usually life long; but there can be exceptions.

Hope this helps.

Auto immune condition.

Dear XXXXXXX there is no specific do's and dont's in thyroid disorder. It is an autoimmune condition, and cannot be modified from external factors. You only need to take care of your diet & exercise, so you don't put on weight. Regards!
