    If you have symptoms of low thyroid, you should be.
    If you aren't in treatment, you would benefit. If you are already, you need a higher dose.

    Thank you for the reply. I'm not currently being treated since my pcp doesn't see a problem. I am somewhat symptomatic but not concerningly so. I am considering asking for a referral for an endocrinologist.
