dear nasreen , hi, thanks for being with HCM. let me share with you few facts which may be of help to you. 1. hypothyroidism is a condition where your thyroid is not working appropriately, so you are being treated with thyroxine replacement which as i mentioned is a replacement for your thyroid function not a treatment for your thyroid gland. so hypothyroidism is a condition to stay for which you need long term treatment. 2. you have not mentioned the dose of your thyroxine replacement. whatever dose you are taking you need escalation to bring down your TSH. see your doctor and do as s/he says. all the best.
