    My Mother has it and went into remission years ago, but then came out and her doctor told she would never go back into remission..... He was wrong she is in remission again and has been for a few years. She hasn't taken medication for a while.

    Remission is when your thyroid tests are all within the normal range and your antibodies have dropped to the normal range or disappeared altogether.  Some people will quickly normalize their thyroid tests but their antibodies are still present. If you stop medication before the antibodies are gone, you will definitely have a relapse.
