Thanks for the question. Have you consulted again with the internal medicine specialist who treats you? From the results of these blood tests you experience your thyroxine hormone is low or in other words you have hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism itself can be caused by iodine deficiency, birth defects, the effects of hypothyroid medication, pregnant women, a history of radiotherapy to the neck area, surgical removal of the thyroid, or side effects of certain medications. In general, this condition is treated with medication containing artificial thyroid hormones. After the patient consumes medication, the patient will also be advised to check thyroid hormone levels regularly. The goal is to regulate drug administration according to thyroid levels in the body so that the artificial thyroid hormone is not given too much. Usually the level of more attention is the T4 level. If T4 levels return to normal, TSH hormone levels will usually adjust. Please return to consult with the internal medicine specialist who treats you regarding the treatment plan and the next blood test. Meanwhile, keep taking thyroid medication according to the doctor's advice.
I hope this helps.
