Do I need to take drugs lifelong for hypothyroidism?
Q: I am 25 years old and suffering from hypothyroidism. Six months back, my reports showed TSH: 17.38, T3: 122, T4: 4.3 and prolactin: 23.83. I took Thyroxine for three months and TSH was reduced to 6.97. Then after one month, I stopped Thyroxine for two months. Now my TSH is exceptionally high, 28.5. I am very disturbed due to this. I want to know if there is a permanent cure for hypothyroidism or I would need to have the medicine throughout my life. Is there any special diet to cure it?
