Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

First of all do you have hypothyroid or hyperthyroidism symptoms? Like cold or hot sensation, weight gain or weight loss, appetite problem, menstrual problem, or thyroid swelling or palpitations. All these things seek medical attention. If you do not have any of the above and blood report was also normal then you should not take any medications. But for now, get done your serum T3, T4 and TSH or free T3, T4, TSH. If these values are normal then it's okay. If they are below or above the range consult an endocrinologist.

Thank you!
