Thyroid

Good day

I have an inactive thyroid and my GP prescribed Diotroxin and Eltroxin (0.025g). We did another blood test 6 months later and he now told me to half my dose of Eltroxin. Does this mean that my thyroid is working again?

I do not think that it means that your thyroid is working again but rather that the medication had to be altered for a correct T3 and T4 hormonal profile.
