Can hypothyroidism be cured????

Once your thyroid has gone hypo is it possible to heal it or is that it? Are you just bound to be on hormones the rest of your life because there is no other way or hope?

I am hypo and have been told I will be on meds my whole life. I think there may be some circumstances where it can cure itself, but I am not sure.

IMO the only form of hypoT that can be "cured" is that which is due to dietary iodine deficiency -- and then only if there isn't an immunological glitch affecting the thyroid gland.

Best wishes.
