Your numbers: Are technically normal, but may be slightly inappropriate for your age. Some endocrinologist may give you a clinical trial of low dose brand name T4 replacement and see if you improve, as long as your lab remains in the normal range. Check w/your doctor for a referral. These levels will not cause any symptoms you would be aware of.
