IF you do have Hypo symptoms then a starter dose of T4 medication like Synthroid or Levo would probably be what is prescribed. Starter dosages are usually 25 to 50 mcg.
Finding a Dr who will actually prescribe you anything is the magic trick. Since all your tests are "within the normal range" that may be difficult. Dr's are notoriously reliant upon TSH and reference range endocrinology. That is,They either rely 100% on TSH which is almost worthless. And/or they simply medicate to get a person "somewhere" within the reference ranges and that is all. Most seem to fall into these two camps. To find a Dr who will actually treat you based upon symptoms and trying more to get to what most have found to feel well to be the Middle of the range for FT4 and UPPER 1/3 of the range for FT3 would be a Godsend and we need MANY more Dr's like that in the industry.
But again if you are having no symptoms then don't worry about it.
