For your treatment you will be getting a medication called thyroid hormone replacement. This medication will be taken for the rest of your life and will closely replicate the thyroid function. You will also be needing to come in to get blood work done.

Yes, yes that is great! It does take usually a few weeks for the thyroid levels to get back to a normal area. Just remember to take the supplements.

Bob is still going in for his blood work and taking his supplements everyday on schedule, as told. He has since decided to live a healthier lifestyle and goes walking every chance he gets
...and also got a furry friend named Max to keep him company.
