What  are some of the side affects of hashimoto disease. I have had the right side of my thyroid removed and take synthroid (thyroxine).

Once your thyroid levels are normal on your supplement (synthroid) in your case, you should have no symptoms of the hashimotos. By the way, we use the term "side effects" for undesired effects of a drug. Symptoms are what we experience from an illness or disease. See the links below to learn more. ...Read more
