Thanks for your query.

The thyroid profile shows a Hypothyroid status.You are currently taking 2 grains of Nature thyroid. It will be helpful in bringing back the thyroid profile to normal.
You have to repeat thyroid profile after 6-8 weeks after treatment,seeing the thyroid levels further management can be planned.

Follow-up care should include clinical evaluation for symptoms of hypothyroidism or iatrogenic hyperthyroidism.
Physical examination should routinely include weight measurement, pulse and blood pressure determinations, and thyroid examination for the presence of nodules.
Yearly thyroid ultrasonographic evaluation is important because of the increased risk of thyroid nodules in these patients and for follow-up of patients with existing benign thyroid nodules

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
