Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. I fully appreciate your concerns.

  • You have not mentioned whether thyroid is underworking or overworking.
  • Thyroid gland produces thyroid hormone.
  • Thyroid hormone deficiency occurs if thyroid gland is underactive (Hypothyroidism).
  • Under these circumstances, the patient needs daily dose of thyroid hormone supplementation. No other treatment is required.
  • If thyroid gland is hyperactive (Hyperthyroidism), medicines to curb hyperactivity are given.
  • I will be able to give helpful advice if you send me thyroid hormone levels estimation, if done.
  • I personally feel that homeopathic treatment will not help. 

I am sure that you will benefit from the advice. Please feel free to revert back to an endocrinologist online for further clarifications --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/endocrinologist
