Treatment is focused on the replacement of thyroid hormones that the gland is not producing.

Levothyroxine (thyroxine) is the most commonly used medication. Tablets are often prescribed on daily basis. Increasing the intake of iodine through iodine-rich foods can relieve iodine deficiency. There is no cure for autoimmune hypothyroidism.

For most people, treatment is for life. If not treated, hypothyroidism can lead to severe complications.
