Comment from: Dina fayez, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: January 30

I have had hypothyroidism since 5 years and am taking treatment with Eltroxin 100 mg. I take blood test (TSH) every six months but I feel tired. I have antithyroid antibodies (antithyroglobulin AB and antimicrosomal AB) which was positive with high range 108 and 668.

Comment from: 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: November 19

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I had weight gain, heat intolerance, palpitations, dry skin, and fatigue. After being on Synthroid for a couple of years, eventually my thyroid levels returned to normal. I still have to have it checked annually to make sure it doesn't return.
