Hello Mrs. Ann
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism
and are taking thyroxin. Hypothyroidism can affects individuals in variety of ways. Many patients complain of being more sensitive to cold
, dry or pale skin, increase in weight, weakness, depression, constipation
, brittle nail etc. One thing to note is that you should not stop taking medication when you feel better. Many patients do that and the disease the recurs. With proper medication, hypothyroidism can be easily managed. As you must be knowing, thyroid medicines are best taken on an empty stomach before food. Hope this helped.
Dr. Gagandeep Dhillon
