Please visit an Endocrinologist to be personally assessed to see if you need medication. Diet and exercise changes alone will not have any impact on this.

First of all your TSH is high. Get Anti TPO Test done to confirm if it is Autoimmune Hypothyroidsm . If indeed it is , than you will have to start medicine. Diet and exercise doesn't help much in thyroid unfortunately. Follow with the reports. All the best
