Hypothyroidism is basically lack of thyroid hormones in the body. It depends upon severity of hypothyroidism, amongst other factors, whether a patient with hypothyroidism is to be treated or not. However, whenever a decision is made to treat hypothyroidism, levothyroxine supplementation is usually a part of the treatment plan.
The above prescription does not seem to have that. So I suggest you to see an Endocrinologist and have him/her review your case history and reports in detail, and then decide upon the treatment plan.
Hope it helps.....

Hi, my son is 20 years old. At 19 he had gall stones and had the gall bladder removed. I thought he was unwell before this happened and he is worse since. He shows all symptoms of hypothyroid.

My 20 yr. old granddaughter has hypothroid (sp?) with 7 nodules & cysts. She s slender which contradicts the syptoms of that condition. She also has swollen glands in that area.

I am a Ph.D. chemist, ~50, have been taking thyroid medication since 1995, Since switching from T4 only to T3/T4 (25ug/75ug), I have seen a big improvement in cognition and then on switching to T3 (50ug) only (done this myself for just the past 3 days see and even better improvement when it comes to my attention span. In addition, I take meds for depression & anxiety. I have not experienced any unpleasant side effects of T3 only besides a little diarrhea--is this OK? ( I think somehow, my body has a greatly diminished ability to covert T4 to T3).
