Hypothyroidism is a common problem in clinical practice. Regardless of its cause, selecting the individual dose of levothyroxin (L-T4) for each patient is crucial for replacement therapy. The occurrence of symptoms despite proper treatment is a result of the patient?s noncompliance rather than malabsorption in the gastrointestinal tract, drug interaction, or, exceptionally, congenital resistance to thyroid hormones.
