In brief: I'm not

Sure what your question is, but your TSH that is slightly elevated indicates your thyroid is beginning to fail.
There is variable opinion on when to begin treatment with brand name T4 replacement, but almost certainly the problem will continue to worsen (and never correct itself) so why not begin the lifelong replacement now? Talk w/your doctor.
