I went to an orthopedist for knee pain and difficulty while getting up when sitting on the floor. He asked me to get a bunch of tests one of was TSH. Everything was normal except TSH. First report conducted by Thyrocare TSH Level was: 12.78 After 3 months I got the test done again. Now the results were TSH: 15.602 T3, FREE: 2.76 T4, FREE: 0.9 The surprising fact is there no symptoms. I have read a hundred symptoms but I feel nothing different. Infact my weight has reduced in a period of 3 months from 51.9 to 51 kg. My weight has remained in the range of 50-53 for the past 4 years. I don't feel lethargic, I recently went for a track and climb 4 flight of stairs daily without any hassle. Eyes are not popping out, no scaly skin. I just have pain in my knees. Looking for a genuine suggestion. I don't want to start kids for Thyroid as then the body becomes dependent on external sources and one has to take it life long. So kindly help me out.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs.
