Thyroid .issues as well as anxiety issues and sleep issues are lifestyle issues which mostly require a lifestyle solution and not chemical cocktail of medicines. You have to address the root cause and not the symptoms and the focus should be on whole patient and not the disease. Hypothyroidism is a misdiagnosed and wrongly treated treated all over the world. Treating only on the TSH level alone is wrong .Dr is treating the labs and not the symptoms .In several cases TSH levels may be normal but patient still has symptoms. Secondly what you have been given is T4 or synthetic thyroxine which is not the active hormone T4 Thyroxine -Inactive hormone T3-Triodothyronine- Active hormone T4 needs to convert to T3 in the liver, kidney and in the thyroid for the conversion to occur you need nutrients which I am sure your Dr. Might not have explained and also you would not have asked. So first thing send me the thyroid profile tests you have done .I am sure they would have left out certain tests that is my usual experience Read up about he disease first and get educated to question your Dr. Do not take your drs words for granted. All your issues are interrelated which can be easily fixed provided you change your lifestyle and eating habits If you want specific advice on what is the correct tests and treatment to be followed and how to make your thyroid working for you and not against you Send a feedback with your name and working phone number and I will call you from abroad and then you can take a consult through Lybrate. Remember you have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms.
