Low Thyroid options

I am a relatively healthy 31 year old female. I knew to watch out for my thyroid levels due to the fact that my grandmother, mother and aunt all have no/low thyroid. Last year my doctor did a blood test and found my thyroid level to be 1.7 which i thought was pretty low, but she didnt see any issue with it. I just had another blood test done and my thyroid level is now .4 which i again thought was way too low and she once again said it was still in the 'normal' range of thyroid levels. I have gained almost 20 pounds in the past 5 months, i am not eating any different, in fact i am a very healthy eater. I am doing nothing different, except i find i am not as active as i used to be. These two symptoms combined with my family history makes me feel like i need to be on thyroid replacement but my doctor wont do anything. What can i do?!?
