Brief Answer:
No need to change the dosage.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the attached report. Her TSH is well within the limit. There is no need to worry regarding T4. TSH is more significant. There is no need to change the dosage.
Just repeat the tests after 2 months and keep an eye on these levels.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Thanks Doctor !

I read from internet that TSH for pregnant women should be less than 2.5
Actually my wife is having 2.35 now. In future, if it exceeds 2.5 , dosage should be changed ?

Brief Answer:
Depends on weeks of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The evaluation of TSH is also done according to the weeks of gestation. After 22 weeks, a TSH of upto 3 is also considered normal. It is best to consult your gynecologist next time in case the TSH values increase.

Hope my answer is helpful.
