Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Thyronorm is the best medicine and you should continue with that only, you have not mentioned the T4 value. It is important while taking the decision for a medical therapy, but I advice you to go forwards with Thyronorm.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi Doctor. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and had been taking 50 mcg of Thyronorm for some months now and my TSH levels were normal, but recent blood test showed that the TSH level has increased to 10. Should I up my dose and to how much? Will taking gym supplements affect the TSH level and will exercise help?
