Dr.Guttler’s comments:

  1. If you are taking thyroid hormone lifetime replacement therapy you need to know if the diagnosis was confirmed by original lab tests and examination.
  2. Many patients are treated without full documentation of the presence of hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
  3. Starting thyroid when the patient has symptoms of weight gain, fatigue or feeling cold but no proof of abnormal blood TSH as a trial is not a good idea.
  4. There are risk to taking thyroid hormone to the patient’s bones and heart.
  5. Get another opinion if you really need thyroid hormone for life.
