I would like to share the thyroid report of my prospective partner who has inherited hypothyroidism. His doctor has prescribed him thyronorm 25 gm. He will have to take medicine lifelong because of his condition. Is he physically fit for marriage? Mr. SUJEET (40Y/M)

Your prospective partner's thyroid reports are normal. He definitely needs to take the thyronorm all his life and he needs to get his thyroid tests done every 6-12 months. As long as his thyroid function tests are normal he should hopefully not have any symptoms. Low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, infertility etc are observed if the patient's thyroid function tests are abnormal and it has been found that even in these patients the symptoms become better/disappear after the patient has been on thyroxine supplemention for six months. May I also suggest you if you could directly ask your prospective partner about this.
I wish you all the best
Hope this has helped you
