How is hypothyroidism treated?

Hypothyroidism is treated by medications that bring your level of thyroid hormone back to the healthy range. The most commonly-used medication is thyroxine, which is usually taken daily. In most cases, once you start treatment for hypothyroidism, you will need to continue taking the medication for the rest of your life and have your thyroid hormone levels measured regularly.
