Hello There. i can understand your concern, thyroid disorders, hypertension, diabetes mellitus are a few conditions in which the medications need to be taken for life and it cannot be stopped like how you did. the reports came normal because of the tablets which you were taking. you need to keep continuing that medicines and not to stop. kindly consult a endocrinologist for dose adjustment. best regards.

You can't suddenly stop any hormonal tablets. If you want to taper it then you have to start ayurvedic treatment with it. Because eltroxin like tablet only normals the thyroid level in blood only. But the problem of digestion still persists .So in Hypothyroidism Vat -Kaph abnormalities first Vaman (emesis)panchakarma is best treatment. Management -(Ampachan - digestion improvement, Removal of obstruction and rejuvenation treatment ) For this ayurvedic medicines will be given
