If not it should be. Your other hormones and a D level should be checked also.See 1 more doctor answer

There are, however, some people who are sensitive to even mildly abnormal levels, and have symptoms. Dry skin is a very common complaint, that may or may not be related. Acne is usually associated with high thyroid.
