Hi thanks for your question on HCM,you have been diagnosed as hypothyroidism,there is nothing to worry,you have to get replacement for you thyroid hormone all you have to do is take a tablet of thyroid hormone called as thyroxine ( to begain with 100mg,which can be reduced latter on depending on your thyroid response) daily for rest of your life,it is not going to cause you any problem
