Both results in the: Abnromal range but not by too much. In any case the levels are indicative of thyroid deficiency and could lead to your symptoms. Please see your doctor for replacement therapy.

Would make sure tests confirmed before starting therapy this one value is a snapshot in time and the values may be changing which would effect treatment.
