Is there a different treatment for hshimotos than hypothyroidism
If the patient has shown hormone deficiency, the treatment is the same as hypothyroidism.
In hashimoto's, patients show Hyperthyroidism in early stage, when it progresses, patients develop Hypothyroidism. In hypothyroidism stage, the treatment is the same as in hypothyroidism.
