Hello, Hypothyroidism, also called underactive thyroid disease, is a common disorder. With hypothyroidism, your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid controls how your body's cells use energy from food, a process called metabolism.usually levothyroxin is prescribed for Hypothyroid patients. Dosage is adjusted taking TSH levels into consideration. Consult general physician with thyroid profile report
