Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

You are suffering from hypothyroidism, in which the thyroid gland is producing insufficient amount of thyroid hormone. Hence, lifelong replacement of the hormone is the rule.

Your thyroid hormone level was normal due to adequate, daily replacement of hormone. Stopping of thyrofit lead to deficiency.

Re-start with thyrofit 25 and CONTINUE TAKING IT LIFELONG. Do NOT STOP IT again, without your doctor's advice.
