Brief Answer:
need to repeat after 3 months

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing to us.
The report shows very mild elevation of TSH which can happen transiently.
I would suggest you repeat the test in 3 months time. No need for medicines right now.
Avoid cabbage, cauliflower.
Other vegetables and foods are fine.
Ensure you take only iodised salt.

Regards
