Is permanent treatment possible in homeopathy for hypothyroidism that no need to take lifetime medicine?

Is permanent treatment possible in homeopathy for hypothyroidism that no need to take lifetime medicine?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a condition arising due to deficiency of the hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is constantly required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus it is essential for vital metabolic activities in the body. So there a constant need for it. Hence, it has to be supplied from outside and that too for life time. There is no other drug that can replace it. Taking thyroxine hormone is the only treatment. Thanks.

My mom has thyroid from last 20 years now she is taking 100 mg thyroxine , what to do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, she has to continue taking thyroxine for life time. Dosage may change depending upon tsh levels. Usually on treatment to achieve good control of hypothyroidism, tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level goes up, then dose may have to be increased. Plus she should exercise regularly so as to avoid weight increase. Also follow all instructions regarding avoiding certain foods. Thanks.
