Details

Synthroid is a man-made thyroid hormone that is used to treat a condition called as hypothyroidism which is usually associated with inflammation of thyroid gland (thyroiditis). This medication is most commonly meant to replace a hormone that is made by the thyroid gland.

Mechanism of action of Synthroid:

Synthroid with an active ingredient Levothyroxine sodium acts like endogenous thyroid hormone thyroxin (T4, a tetra-iodinated tyrosine derivative). In liver and kidney, T4 is converted to T3, the active metabolite. In order to increase solubility, the thyroid hormones attach to thyroid hormone binding proteins, thyroxin-binding globulin, and thyroxin-binding prealbumin (transthyretin). Transport and binding to thyroid hormone receptors in the cytoplasm and nucleus then take place. Thus by acting as a replacement for natural thyroxin, symptoms of thyroxin deficiency are relieved.
