  • you have hashiomotos thryroditis. what is waiting to treat you for?

  • I have hashimotos but the doctor said she would treat me when my TSH was near to 10 !!

  • Find another doctor, that's ridiculous!! You are within your right to thyroxine once your level is over 5!!

  • Your TSH level that is, but also thyroxine should help reduce the attack on your thyroid and lower the antibodies.
