Dear Nina
One uses thyroid supplement for an underactive thyroid - this is monitored carefully with regular blood tests as too much can cause an over active thyroid with its own complications. It is often caused by inflammation ( outo immune diseases) or viral infections. Your GP can test your blood to determine whether there is a problem with the thyroid hormone levels
