Congenital hypothyroidism is treated by giving thyroid hormone medication in a pill form called levothyroxine. Many children will require treatment for life. Levothyroxine should be crushed and given once daily, mixed with a small amount of water, formula, or breast milk using a dropper or syringe

It can b treated by giving thyroid hormone replacement therapy i.e is Tab Levothyroxine as soon as baby is diagnosed with cretinism..One tab mixed with water or breast milk in powder form...
