My mother's TSH is 1.98 but T4 is 15.5. What should I do? She takes Thyrox 75 mg daily. She is 64 and diabetic but diabetes is under control.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH value 1.98 mU/L and T4 15.5 ng, it appears her present dosage is a bit higher than required. Because if T4 levels go up, there can be symptoms of excess thyroxine. So there is a need for dose reduction. You can talk to her physician regarding this. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism if not well controlled does not allow conception to occur. Primary need is to achieve a very strict control with TSH remaining below 2 mU/L for conception to take place. Even through the pregnancy also TSH levels have to be maintained around 2 mU/L. Hence, please check and come back. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have grade one obesity with 33.34 kgs/m2 bmi. In this situation weight reduction is very tough. On top of it you have hypothyroidism, which causes weight gain, if not in complete control. To achieve very good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. I am not aware of your tsh levels. If they are high please see that those levels come down to as mentioned above. Very strict diet control and regular exercise can help you to cut 5 to 8% of present weight. Thanks.

increased acidity and colitis are not the same but in many cases can be related to each other. symptoms of acidity could be stomach ache, recurrent cough, feeling uneasy, or dizziness. colitis could present with anaemia, diarrhoea, uneasiness, and weight loss. a proper history and evaluation could help you diagnose the condition and hence begin with appropriate therapy. feel free to consult me if you would like my assistance

Mr. Lybrate-user, uncontrolled diabetes, does affect various organs and a number of functions in our body. Peripheral neuropathy is one of those complications of diabetes. This leads to pain and burning sensation in feet as well as burning sensation. The drug pragabalin is quite effective for reducing the pain. But prime need is strict blood sugar control - fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. If this is not achieved other drugs may not show much benefit. So see tha blood sugar levels are controlled better.

I would suggest you check your footwear. I have a doubt whether it might be allergic contact dermatitis. Some of the nailheads in your footwear might be exposed and coming in contact with your sole and when mixing with sweat, you might be allergic to the compound. Kindly consult a dermatologist when the lesions appear.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose level mentioned is too gigh, it is dangerous to have such high glucose level. He needs immediate treatment. He also appears to be over weight, that is also a major contributor for diabetes. If not treated propely and immediately, it can cause serious complications related to number of vital organs like eyes (retina), kidneys, sexual function, lower limbs and heart. Treatment of diabetes includes includes appropriate drugs, diet control and regular exercise with weight control. Thanks.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Your bp and sugar are controlled. Premature ejaculation is very common and is usually not associated with any disease but may be due to anxiety. However it is sometimes associated with infection of male accessory glands, which is treatable. In case you want a prescription from me now then ask at private question.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I am speaking from the world wide data on the disease and its treatment. Hypothroidism is a deficiency disease. Thyroxie hormone which is produced by our thyroid gland is not being produced either enough or nil. This leads pititary to produce more of TSH to try and stimulate thyroid gland. But it is unable to produce. So in hypothyroidism you get high TSh value and low T4 and T3 hormones. Both these are essential for day to day functioning of our body. So they need to be supplemented from outside. If not done then the person will have swelling of face, legs and feet, weight gain, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, muscle and joint pains, irregular menstruation in females, plus infertility, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall. If still no treatment is given there can be serious complications called as myxedema coma. In chidren hypothyroidism leads to lack of intelligence an less IQ. The only treatment world wide is taking adequate dose of levothyroxine which is a synthetic form of hormone. Unfortunately there is no cure for this condition like for diabetes. But if yu do not want to believe, it is fine. There is no need to get confused. Follow one of the line of thinking. If you want to believe Ayurvedic doctors and stop the medication and try out that medicine, please do. Good luck to you. Thanks.

Your anger outbursts and frustrations may be due to hypothyroidism itself. Now that you are taking proper dose, it will subside in due course. Keep repeating thyroid function tests 3 monthly and adjust the dose. With normal tsh level if your anger is the same, consult a psychiatrist. Many persons with hypothyroidism suffer from depression also. Both need to be treated side by side.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, causing lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland plus there are anti bodies produced by our own immune cells against thyroid peroxidase (anti tpo abs). These antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells in the gland, leading to hypothyroidism. The causes are not clear, genetic predisposition, viral infections and even taking excess iodinated salt have been thought to be the reasons. In usa this is the main cause of hypothyroidism, more common in women, the patient with ht usually have other members of the family having some or the other autoimmune disease or himself or herself may have another autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or t1 diabetes. Treatment is to give thyroxine replacement for life time. Iodine has no role in the treatment.

Dear Lybrateuser, - To bring down your fasting level sugar decrease carbohydrates & increase protein & healthy fats in your dinner - do regular exercise like brisk walking for 30-40 min, also do yoga for 5-10 min daily in the morning, also take a 10 min walk after dinner for better digestion & control of sugar - sleep well for 7-8 hours in the night.
