My mother fells energyless all the time she is hypothyroidism patient having body weight 67 kg. What will be the correct medicine dose for her, her age?

Most doctors only prescribe levothyroxine (synthetic T4) but research (and clinical experience) shows most feel much better by adding T3 (liothyronine) or changing to natural thyroid. Also many doctors do not give adequate doses. See

Of course, the most logical timing of F/U should be deduced by working closely with your treating doc since she/he surely knows more pertinent information about you. ...Read more
