23 years old female from Delhi asked
I am a 24 year old female and I have hypothyroid condition since past 5 years. I weigh 88 kgs and my height is 5 ft. How difficult is it to have a healthy and fit lifestyle and lose weight for me? I have been eating healthy and exercising but I see no changes. Please suggest.
Are you taking any medication for hypothyroidism because normal TSH is necessary to stop weight gain and to reduce the excess weight you have to take homoeopathic treatment.
25 years old male from Hyderabad asked
Hi! Good evening sir / madam suffering from thyroid problem this week I tested TSH value 7.70 so which tablet I have to use? How much mg tablet?
Mr Mohiuddin, Thanks for the query. I think this question is with regard to your wife, if so you should have provided her height and weight. That would have given some idea as to whether she is overweight or obese. Giving your details has no meaning. TSH 7.7 mU/L is above normal, but falls in the subclinical stage. That normally is not treated unless there are specific symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Sir, I'm 24 year old .My Thyroid report show t3 as 109 ,T4 as 7.9 and TSH as 15.71. What can l do for to Reduce T S H?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid report suggests that there is hypothyroidism. This needs regular treatment with levothyroxine tablets and control the TSH level. Thanks.

A neurologist suggest me for thyroid test. For benign essential tremor. And report shows. TSH 3-UL 5.060 FT3 3.52 FT4 1.36 CAN IT DANGER. Please. Suggest. Any causes or harm shows in report please suggest.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are ok. T3 & T4 are within normal limit. But TSH is slightly higher. But there is no need for any treatment with regard to thyroid.
32 years old female from Hyderabad asked
I am 32 years old having hypothyroidism. Having 4 years old kid. Now we are planning for another baby. Recently DNC had done for me because of no heart beat. Present my TSH value is 5.using 75 mcg. How much dosage should I take now to decrease TSH value. Give me tips for getting healthy pregnancy next time. Height 5" weight 68 kgs.
Archanaji, Thanks for the query. If one is on treatment for hypothyroidism and if the thyroxine dose is adequate, then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from any symptoms in a non pregnant woman. However, if conception is desired then TSH should be maintained <2 mU/L. Later during first trimester it should be 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester :0.3 to 3 U/L & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. So present dose has to be increased by 25 mcg per day. Then check TSH after 6 weeks to see if desired level is reached. Thanks.

You have increase dose of thyronorm. If you want pregnancy then tsh must decrease less than 2.5.it is not dangerous as tsh may go up to 999. But we should careful.

For prolactin less than 25 and of tsh less than 2.5.there is no natural way. However iodised salt help in case the cause is iodine deficiency only.
27 years old male from Delhi asked
If I take thyronorm tablet. How much mg I need per tablet and for how long I have to take this and at what time. Thanx.
Mr Kapil, Thanks for the query. Dosage of levothyroxine depends on persons body weight, TSH & T4 levels. Since there is no mention about TSH and T4 levels, it is difficult to give any opinion. Hypothyroidism is thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required every day in the body for almost every single metabolic function, hence needs to be supplemented daily for lifetime. Thanks
27 years old male from Hyderabad asked
What does HIGH TSH mean before radio active iodine therapy? And why high TSH required before the RAI therapy? Can we use normal non iodized salt in diet before RAI Therapy?
High TSH indicates loss of the thyroid hormone and you can use normal non iodized salt in diet before RAI Therapy

45 years old female from Shimla asked
I am a hypothyroid patient. I am working as a teacher I am private school. My day begins around 5: 30 am cooking meals 4 d day. I leave home at 8 am n o my toes at skol till I reach home at 4 pm. after which im exhausted n drained. I eat egg white with chappati 4 breakfast. At 10 I munch again wid black tea. Then.1 chappati n veggi 4 lunch. At 4 have rice n dal. A cup of tea .4 dinner I hv either just milk or indulge I eating rice again. Im also a sweet tooth. My weight is 90 kg. please help me how should I control my weight?
Sangeetaji, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that there is grade 2 obesity with a BMI of 36.29 kgs/M2 (normal <23kgs/M2). One of the reasons could be uncontrolled hypothyroidism. There is no mention about current TSH level and thyroxine dosage. When on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms plus even to succeed in weight reduction. So please see that TSH is maintained in the prescribed limit. Secondly there has to be a sincere effort to reduce weight through exercise and diet control plus maintaining TSH as prescribed. Thanks
30 years old male from Bangalore asked
Thyroid produces t3, t4 and calcitonin for calcium absorption. My gland is attacked by immune system and producing nill of these. I'm on eltroxin now, thyroid hormones are replaced orally, what about calcitonin? Some doctors say it will be corrected by replacing thyroid hormones itself, how?it us a different entity right?
Mr Rakesh, Thanks for the query. In autoimmune thyroiditis(Hashimoto's Thyroiditis), thyroid secreting cells are affected, leading to less of thyroxine hormone. Calcitonin is secreted by parafolicular cells (C- cells), those also may be affected and there can be certain deficiency of that hormone also. However, that is unlikely to cause any noticeable problem. But it is better to look at the bone health of the patient. as there is a possibility of affection. But there is no obvious need for calcitonin supplement in hypothyroidism. Thanks.

31 years old female from Guwahati asked
Is Bengal gram (both raw and cooked) not recommended for patients having hypothyroidism? What are the food items a person having hypothyroidism should avoid? P.S. Currently I am on 100 mcg thyronorm tablets.
Farihaji, Thanks for the query. In hypothyroidism mainly soy beans and foods containing soy are to be avoided, because of flavonoids, which tend to affect thyroxine action. Other foods like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, radish, peanuts etc are also to be avoided. But it is not absolutely essential. These foods should be taken at least 4 hours after the dosage. Plus consume a great deal of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits. Use whole grain products (flour) for chapati and roti. Avoid maida. Milk products can be taken. Thanks
23 years old male from Pune asked
I am 23 year old I have problem of memory, I forgot the things what I have to do. I think possibly it is due to overactive of thyroid. So what medical treatment will help me.
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.
3 years old female from Visakhapatnam asked
Dear doctor, am 35 years old hyperthyroid, (graves), my TSH now is less than 0.01, since one month I am taking methimez 10 mg, I delivered a healthy baby girl nine months back, in pregnancy I was in remission of disease. Now am getting muscular Pains in centre of my palms, feet and upper back, hip joint spasm. One years back my endocrinologist gave Tayo 60k for same problem but, now again am getting muscle aches, please suggest me the remedy. I am feeling frustrated.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is nice to know you have delivered a healthy baby. Now if there symptoms like muscle pain and joint pain, it is better to get a thyroid test done. Because symptoms of hyperthyroidism can return after soe time. Because your TSH level is fairly low. So please come back with values of free T3 & T4. Thanks.
29 years old male from Delhi asked
Normal TSH levels for the average adult range from 0.4 ‑ 4.0 mIU/L (milli-international units per liter) (3). However, many organisations agree that a reading of 2.5 or less is truly ideal, with anything 2.5 – 4.0 mIU/L considered “at risk”. For those on thyroxine, goal TSH level is between 0.5 to 2.5 mU/L
26 years old male from Chandigarh asked
I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking thyroxine from last 3 years with the prescription of doctor. Earlier my tsh remain near to 6 or 4 but now it declined to 0.25. My doctor is still saying to continue 50 and 75 mg thyroxine on alternate basis but I am feeling some kind of weakness in my body and sometimes feels dizziness and fainting, low level of energy in body. Is it due to the excess fall in tsh level and whether I should continue taking 50 and 75 mg alternate or shall minimize it?
TSH as such does not cause any symptoms. They are caused by Thyroid hormone. TSH levels reflect avilaibility of Thyroid hormone. When Thyroid hormne level falls TSH (Thyroid stimilating hormone) secreted from pituitary gland to stimulate thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone and when thyroid hormone level in blood rises (due to excessive production by thyroid gland or exogenously taken, TSH level falls. Intreating patients we take help of TSH levels in blood.
