Thyroid/Hormone blood work

Hello, I'm a 43 year old female with symptoms of hypothyroid.  I decided to get some blood work done.  Do you think these results warrant a Doctor visit?  Thank You.

TSH         3.1   uIU/ml                               .45-4.5
Thyroxine (T-4)  7.4  ug/dl                            4.5-12.0
T3 uptake   26                                            24-39
Free Thyroxine index 1.9                              1.2-4.9

FSH    9.4                                        Follicular phase  3.5-12.5  mIU/ml
Estradiol  89.3                                   Follicular phase 12.5-166  pg/ml

TSH of 3.1 with normal T4 and T3 uptake is most consistent with a normal thyroid panel that would typically not require treatment.  However seeing an endocrinologist to discuss this further may be warranted depending on her symptoms and preferences.
