Follow-up: There's really nothing to do right now. Endocrine disease, which is likely, is usually treatable; the consequences of neglecting it are very serious. There's no exercises, dietary interventions, or other stuff to do on your own. Best wishes.

Talk with the doctor: A patient should talk with her doctor, because her doctor is the person who knows what the lab results are, why the tests were ordered, what the results mean, whether or not anything needs to be done, etc... That means a phone call, a virtual online consultation, or an in-person visit to the doctor. Pretty standard procedure.
