Hello there....., Standard treatment for hypothyroidism involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine.... This oral medication restores adequate hormone levels, reversing the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. One to two weeks after starting treatment, you'll notice that you're feeling less fatigued. The medication also gradually lowers cholesterol levels elevated by the disease and may reverse any weight gain.....
