Endocrinologist 's  Response
Hello,
Welcome and thank you for asking!
From the results you reported the most probable diagnosis is Hashimoto thyroiditis that has caused subclinical hypothyroidism.
An endocrinologist will typically recommend levothyroxine. This is a prescription medication that is the scientifically sound way to replace the deficient hormone in the human body.

Please consult your endocrinologist for a prescription for the same.

The ideal dose varies from person to person and a blood test for TSH in a laboratory is extremely useful in determining the appropriate dose.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
