Aim – The aim of this study is to show a case of a hypothyroidism, the results from the acupuncture treatment and the way it functions.

Methods – Treated patient is a 29 year old woman diagnosed with hypothyroidism. She has done 6 treatments with acupuncture, one treatment every week, except the third treatment was made after two weeks because of flu and high body temperature. Treatments were done in a clinic for Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in Skopje, by a doctor specialist in acupuncture. The treated points are located on the meridians of Du mai, Ren mai, Liver, Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen and Gall Bladder.

Results – Before coming to the clinic the patients TSH level was 5,9 and after finishing the treatment the TSH level was returned to 4,6. The patient was experiencing extreme tiredness and low energy levels and after finishing the treatments her health was restored and all the associated symptoms were gone. We succeeded to get these positive results with only 6 treatments.

Conclusion – The acupuncture treatment as part of the 5000 year old Traditional Chinese Medicine in this case of hypothyroidism is very successful treatment and gives very satisfying and positive results for a very short time.
