thanks for choosing health care broad terms as per the report it is suggestive of hypothyroidism means the thyroid gland is not producing sufficient amount of thyroid hormone.Endocrinologist is involved because to rule out some other hormonal abnormalities and proper confirmation of diagnosis and some other tests that may required.Even if she is hypothyroid there is no need for worry.
