lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and if it is well controlled, then there will be no menstrual problems. The very fact that you have menstrual problems, means hypothyroidism is not in control. On treatment TSh should be between 3 to 4 mU/L. Since you have not mentioned about the thyroxine dose being taken or current TSH level no comment related to that can be made. If you are willing then I can help, provided all the details are made available. Thanks.

My mom is 40 she have thyroid problem what should we do too help her.
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. One should set realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan.

I am a hypothyroid patient. I am using thyrox 125 for last one year. Now my tsh is normal i. E. 1.0. But from last one month I am feeling tingling at one side of face and head and my weight also decreased by 5kg in one month. My face and eyes are facing allergy. Lot of tiredness and when I sleep facing tremors. What is this? My physician has prescribed to reduce the dose of thyrox to100mg. Is it due to drug overdose. All my blood tests like blood sugar, kft, lft, lipid profiles r normal.

Hello your new symptoms can't be directly linked to overdose. It would be wise to check thyroid profile always as t3, t4 and tsh. Your current tsh levels are nml and not reduced beyond normal limits to suggest overdose. Many patients continue to develop new symptoms of hypothyroidism despite being on medicine and being in control. The doubt of overdose can be easily cleared by reducing the dose for a couple of weeks and rechecking levels. If your symptoms reduce, voila! if not, it only suggests that though blood reports indicate control, the disorder within the body still continues, causing new symptoms to appear. Hypothyroidism is a disorder where the thyroid cells are secreting lower than nml levels of thyroid hormones ie. T3 and t4. This lowered levels send a signal to the brain causing tsh, the controller of thyroid gland, to increase and stimulate production to meet the demand. Once the demand is met and t3 and t4 levels normalise, tsh will return back to nml. This is how the body repairs automatically when it is healthy. However, when the body's ability fails, this compensatory mechanism too fails and disorder persists. Thyroid replacement therapy, like the one you are on, keeps managing the effects of the internal disorder but doesn't do anything to correct it. And hence the lifelong need of these medicines. Only a medicine that can correct the deeper pathology, as with homeopathy, where the bodys ability to repair is restored, the disorder can be resolved. Give it a thought! meet a qualified homeopathic physician in person if interested. And yes, do not change your current dosage without consulting your doctor.

I am sure you are thyroxine tablets for hypothyroidism, once that is controlled it is possible for you to do regular workouts and reduce weight. Firs target on loosing 2 kgs per month, which is possible by reducing the food intake by about 20% and continuing your gym workout. If you feel hungry, take calorie free foods like tomato, dilute butter milk, clear soups etc. Check tsh levels every 6 - 8 weeks to stabilse the dose of thyroxine.

Hello, keep on taking the medicine which you are taking and follow the below yoga exercises:- 1. Shoulder stand (sarvangasana) is the most recommended posture in this condition. It stimulates the thyroid gland to function properly because of the pressure effect and also helps stimulate other glands in the head region, such as pituitary and pineal glands, which also have an indirect control on the functioning of the thyroid gland. 2. Inverted pose (viparitakarani) 3. One-legged forward bend (janu shirasasana) 4. Fish pose (matsyasana)> 5. Plow pose (halasana) 6. Cat stretch (marjariasana) 7. Fast-paced sun salutation (surya namaskar) can work well for controlling weight. Besides these yoga postures, the practice of pranayamas (breathing techniques) such as kapal bhati. Thanks.

thyroid can affect you pregnancy..go for hormonal tests for pre-pregnancy. after tests consult gyne. doctor. Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

Dear , I do understand your predicament. Your tsh and t3, t4 levels are what we call as subclinical hypothyroidism which does not require treatment in most people. Do however check your thyroid profile once every year. Head spinning problem I think it might be vertigo or syncope. For which you will have to give us a few more details.

Hair fall may be attributed to different reasons like using artificial colors, hair styling, chemicals improper diet, acidity & gas, more exposure to sun, spicy sour n salty food, to much curd day sleep, lack of vitamins & other nutrients, anger & stress, due to previous illness etc. Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs.
