Hypothyroidism, also known as subclinical hypothyroidism, occurs among 4 to 21 percent of females and 3 to 16 percent of males [1]. Substitution of thyroid hormone with levothyroxine is the therapeutic option for this common illness [2]. The determination of the recommended normal range of thyroid hormone levels is still a point of contention [3]. Furthermore, even if euthyroidism is restored, individuals getting this medication have reported lower levels of happiness[4].
