In brief: Sub clinical

If your TSH is a little high but your freet4 is in normal range you may have sub clinical hypothyroidism.
We don't generally treat until a person develops overt hypothyroidism unless the person has another condition that would be improved by treating sub clinical hypothyroidism.
