Hello, welcome to HCM,
Your thyroid profile shows increased thyroxine levels and lower TSH.
It indicates presence of hyperthyroidism. You must have some features like increased heart rate, palpitaion, nervousness, tremor hair loss, etc.
For this, you must have to take some antithyroid medication like carbimazole.
Your USG shows thyroid nodules. From these, an USG guided FNAC should be done to rule out any abnormality.
So, consult with your endocrinologist for clinical examination, ordering investigation required and for further management.
