thanks for your query.
It is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is attacked by a variety of cell- and antibody-mediated immune processes.
Continue eltroxin and in some cases need to take eltroxin for life.
You need to monitor TSH level, that it should be below 3,
Preferably take Gluten free diet like avoid taking wheat, oat, raye etc.
Thanks a lot.
