Hi there.

Thanks for writing in.

Even though you say that you don't have any symptoms of hypothyroidism, symptoms like cold intolerance, leg swelling, sleeplessness are symptoms of hypothyroidism.

I'm afraid the main treatment of hypothyroidism is thyronorm lifelong. You might also want to consult with a doctor who deals with acupressure/ acupuncture. Acupressure has provided good results in some people with thyroid disorders.

Hope this helps.
