Mr. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is essential for routine functioning and development of brain, plus takes part in most vital metabolic reactions going on in the body, it has to be made available every day. So supplementing it daily is absolutely necessary. If one stops taking thyroxine then there can be serious consequences. Hence, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. There is no other option. If still you do not want to take it then it is entirely your choice. Thanks.
