Is hypothyroidism heriditary?
Primary hypothyroidism is a chronic state.
Dear ma'm, hi! I understand the situation is difficult to accept but still the fact remains that the thyroxine usually remains for life. it does run in families and is more common in females. it is an autoimmune condition. it happens usually due to antibodies being formed against the thyroid gland which prevent its further working. so the gland is no more working and you need he replacement from outside in the form of a tab. regards!
