Hello, There is no cure for Hashimoto's, but replacing hormones with medication can regulate hormone levels and restore your normal metabolism.Since you have high TSH level ,you may have to take medicines, Once you start treatment, your doctor will order a lab test called a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test to monitor thyroid function and help ensure you are getting the right dose.
