Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
you have mild elevation of TSH, just above normal and no clinical symptoms.
it is easily treatable witha single tab of eltroxin everyday. slowly you will feel alright as replacement occurs.
I think a small tab a day should not worry you.
thank god you do not have to take insulin shots everyday !!

so relax , take medical treatmrnt and get better.
good luck and keep me posted on your progress.
