In brief: Check reverse T3 (liothyronine)

Looks like peripheral t4-t3 covers ion might be inadequate.
Either use armor thyroid or use compounded t4/t3 combo (need 2% as t3).

In brief: Find a holistic MD

There are numerous factors that can indirectly affect thyroid function.
Do you have symptoms? You can visit my website and 'test yourself' for low thyroid function http://www.Woodlandswellnessmd.Com/questionnaires.Htm if no red flags, then you can monitor levels again in a couple of months.
