  1. regarding the study in the following article please explain: CONCLUSION:
    This study suggests that levothyroxine replacement decreases oxidant status and increases antioxidant status following the 6 months of levothyroxine replacement in hypothyroidism that develops in accordance with the HT.

  2. Basically it is saying that it reduces inflammation.
