What were the 'English medicines' ? If they were true T4 or/ and T3 Thyroid replacements you can get them elsewhere. If you really do have hypothyroidism you need the correct hormone replacements; supplements like vitamins D and B12, plus folate and ferritin, might help but they won't 'cure' . Adjusting your diet by perhaps going gluten free might help too. Have you had any blood tests, with ranges, for TSH, T4, T3, antibodies etc, if so post them here for help?

Hypothyroidism is a serious condition and we cannot live without thyroid hormone replacements. Our heart and brain need the most.

Usually we are given levothyroxine but quite a number on this forum do not feel well and sometimes the doctor doesn't give sufficient dose but stops when the TSH is at the top of the range (which is around 5).

We have to have sufficient levothyroxine to bring the TSH down to 1 or lower and we have to have a Freee T4 and Free T3 in the upper part of the range but doctors usually only test TSH and T4.

Your doctor should also check B12, Vit D, iron, ferritin and folate - everything has to be at an optimal level, ie near top of ranges.

There is no cure for hypothyroidism as it is an autoimmune disease. Ask your doctor to do the following tests. If he doesn't you can get a private test if you can afford it. You only need one test initially for a Full Thyroid Function Test.

TSH, T4, T3, free T4, Free T3 and thyroid antibodies. Get a copy from the surgery of the results, with the ranges and post on a new question.

I am not sure what this means "Reckewg medicine R 26 ".

Many people recover on levothyroxine and as hypothyroidism is such a serious illness if untreated/undertreated we get all other prescriptions (if you're in the UK) without payment for any other conditions.

Blood tests for thyroid hormones have to always be at the very earliest, fasting (you can drink water) and allow a gap of 24 hours between your last dose of thyroid hormones (or other medications you take) and the test and take it afterwards.

Is this what you're taking?

That will do nothing for your thyroid. If you are really hypo, you will need to take some sort of thyroid hormone replacement (not 'medicine') such as levo, T3 or NDT. You cannot live without thyroid hormone, and this stuff you're taking has no hormones in it. You will just get worse, I'm afraid. It's a very dangerous game you're playing with your health.
