Suggest alternative treatment for hypothyroidism

Q : I am 23 yrs old girl. Is there any other alternative treatment for hypothyrodism? Thyronorm 100 mcg which is taken by me for last 5 yrs will it cause any side effects? I have to take this medicine life long. A : Hi.. There are no other alternative treatment plan for hypothyroidism except for supplementing it through medications... As this is a hormone replacement, the side effects develop when there is over correction leading to hyperthroidism state.. In such a cases symptoms of hyperthroidism like palpitation, weight loss, anxiety, tremors, gastritis and others develop....
