Hypothyroidism is the disease state caused by insufficient production of thyrohormone by the thyroid gland. There are several distinct causes for chronic hypothyroidism, the most common being Hashimoto's thyroiditis and hypothyroidism following radioiodine therapy for hyperthyroidism. Advanced hypothyroidism may cause severe complications, the most serious one of which is myxedema.

Not at Therapeutic Levels

Hello, is anyone else on Synthroid 25mg? My local Endocrinologist refuses to test my T3's as well as raise my dosage. Ugh, it's made a small difference, however I'm still not feeling well. Just curious if anyone is on as low a dose as me? It makes no sense which is why I'm sending my medical records to Boston. Mass General Hospital A+++ care! It's ridiculous to me how doctors take this with a grain of salt :(
