First, i am sorry to say that the information given by you is too scanty for the diagnosis of which type of thyroid problem, is the gland completly absent or is partialy present, and treatment depends on it.
if the thyroid gland is totally absent, then he or she should take medicine for life long,and if gland is partialy present then Homeopathy can help you. And taking life long medicine can be avoided. Consult a good qualified homeopath, go with reports and tests. And ask for the constitutional medicine, i will definitly help he/she.
Thank you

Hi, my daughter is 16 weeks pregnant with twins but she was told that she has a thyroid level reading of 0.01. She has had this reading since at least her 3rd month, without any medication. Could you please tell me what effects this may have on the twins and what type of medication is safe for her to take without harming her or the babies. Thank-you.
