Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
The normal range for thyroid values are :
T3 60.00 - 181.00 ng/dl
T4 4.50 - 12.60 µg/dl
TSH 0.35 - 5.50 µIU/mL

Your TSH levels are too high than the maximum normal required. It means there is a hypothyroid state (low thyroid levels) and you surely need thyroid supplementation.
In India you get supplemental thyroid in a dose range of 25 MicGm to 150 MicGm. Normal way is to start with 25 MicGm and re do the reports after 3-4 months.
But then, at health care magic we are not allowed to prescribe any drug and i would request you to consult a physician before starting the drug.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
