Thyronorm and Hives
I have had Hypothyroid for about 11 years now. I was on Thyronorm 100mcg (Levothyroxine) for about 3 years now. Latest Blood Test show TSH T3 and T4 levels as normal therefore Doctor advised to reduce the dose to Thyronorm 50mcg. Since this reduction I am having a bad case of Hives. What could be the reason and how to tackle it?
