Symptoms: Hi. There's not a SINGLE symptom associated with hypo- or hyperthyroidism that is specific to hypo- or hyperthyroidism.

The relative risk depends on many things, such as the specific nature of the thyroid disorder, how it was/is treated and whether or not there is ongoing inflammation in the gland.

The total dose of 30 mg daily may be appropriate, especially early after diagnosis.
