In brief: Thyroid hormone dose
Thyroid disorders can become tricky to treat sometimes.
Although you have been started on the thyroid hormone replacement but it is highly likely that this small dose may not be enough for u. U may need dose adjustment and also be told about the proper way to take the thyroid hormone ie on empty stomach at least 45 min before u eat. Hope this helps!
