Thyroid gland issues

My mum sufers from hypotyroidsm and although under medication ( 100 ug/day), her neurological condition is becoming worse.  She has diffculties speaking and walking ( loss of balance), coordination of hands movements, dry skin, eye itching.  Is it possible that her medication dose is not adequate?  She lives in Bosnia and receives treatment there.

Best Regards,

Mary

The dry skin, dry eyes would be the hypothyroid and if she is dry, it would appear that she is being under treated. The speaking issue could be due to a goiter or nodules on the thyroid - has she had an ultrasound to see if anything is there?

There are such things as a thyroid storm - which can be the thyroid shutting down. The thyroid is essential for life. I would get her to see a doctor for testing as soon as possible.
