Hypothyroidism: I was not diagnosed until i'd been on lithium for 2 yrs. Doctors kept me on it 2 more yrs. Any chance my thyroid will function again?
Replacement works: Being hypothyroid doesn't mean that your thyroid gland is working at all. It just may not be producing the amount of thyroid hormone that is needed. The good thing is that thyroid replacement works great and taking it should be able to prevent all the complications that are associated with hypothyroidism. Regular blood tests should be done to adjust thyroid medication up or down as needed.See 1 more doctor answer

Listen to doctor: If your thyroid hormone levels have been checked and are normal, believe your doc when he says your thyroid is ok. Don't be fooled by websites that claim you can have abnormal thyroid function with normal labs.
