Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have gone through your question. You have hypothyroidism. You need to take thyroid supplement like thyronorm. Dosage should be calculated according to your TSH level. TPO test is for thyroid paroxidase antibodies test that is commonly increased in hypothyroidism. So go for TSH and TPO test. Then start thyronorm accordingly to maintain your TSH in normal range.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer.

Wish you very good health.

Regards,
Dr. Hardik Sanghvi
