I want to know that my periods have come always late around 35 days, I have hypothyroidism also. But my tsh level is ...
there are many cause for irregular menses..do usg for pelvis, and tsh level is going down ..A number of conditions, including Graves' disease, toxic adenoma, Plummer's disease (toxic multinodular goiter) and thyroiditis, can cause hyperthyroidism. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Although it weighs less than an ounce, the thyroid gland has an enormous impact on your health. Every aspect of your metabolism is regulated by thyroid hormones. Your thyroid gland produces two main hormones, thyroxine (T-4) and triiodothyronine (T-3), that influence every cell in your body. They maintain the rate at which your body uses fats and carbohydrates, help control your body temperature, influence your heart rate, and help regulate the production of protein. Your thyroid also produces calcitonin, a hormone that helps regulate the amount of calcium in your blood. How it all works The rate at which T-4 and T-3 are released is controlled by your pituitary gland and your hypothalamus — an area at the base of your brain that acts as a thermostat for your whole system. Here's how the process works: The hypothalamus signals your pituitary gland to make a hormone called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Your pituitary gland then releases TSH — the amount depends on how much T-4 and T-3 are in your blood. If you don't have enough T-4 and T-3 in your blood, your TSH will rise; if you have too much, your TSH level will fall. Finally, your thyroid gland regulates its production of hormones based on the amount of TSH it receives. If the thyroid gland is diseased and is releasing too much thyroid hormone on its own, the TSH blood level will remain below normal; if the diseased thyroid gland cannot make enough thyroid hormone, the TSH blood level will remain high. Reasons for too much thyroxine (T-4) Normally, your thyroid releases the right amount of hormones, but sometimes it produces too much T-4. This may occur for a number of reasons, including: Graves' disease. Graves' disease, an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies produced by your immune system stimulate your thyroid to produce too much T-4, is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Normally, your immune system uses antibodies to help protect against viruses, bacteria and other foreign substances that invade your body. In Graves' disease, antibodies mistakenly attack your thyroid and occasionally attack the tissue behind your eyes (Graves' ophthalmopathy) and the skin, often in your lower legs over the shins (Graves' dermopathy). Scientists aren't sure exactly what causes Graves' disease, although several factors — including a genetic predisposition — are likely involved. Hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules (toxic adenoma, toxic multinodular goiter, Plummer's disease). This form of hyperthyroidism occurs when one or more adenomas of your thyroid produce too much T-4. An adenoma is a part of the gland that has walled itself off from the rest of the gland, forming noncancerous (benign) lumps that may cause an enlargement of the thyroid. Not all adenomas produce excess T-4, and doctors aren't sure what causes some to begin producing too much hormone. Thyroiditis. Sometimes your thyroid gland can become inflamed for unknown reasons. The inflammation can cause excess thyroid hormone stored in the gland to leak into your bloodstream. One rare type of thyroiditis, known as subacute thyroiditis, causes pain in the thyroid gland. Other types are painless and may sometimes occur after pregnancy (postpartum thyroiditis).

Hi sir, I doubt my wife is thyroid patient, which doctor should consult for that.

Mr. lybrate-user, For any hormone related problems endocrinologist is an ideal doctor. If your wife has hypothyroidism (detected by high TSH level), then I can help in treating on line. So if you give the details like Thyroid test report, weight, height I can guide. Getting the condition properly treated is very essential as untreated condition can affect fertility. Thanks.

Bp is not directly related to diabetes. It often depends on what medication she is taking. Insulin may precipitate an episode of hypoglycaemia and subsequent fall in bp if taken without food.

I have thyroid t3 -69 t4-56 and tsh 6.9 I am taking theoroxine 100mg 1od kindly guide about dose I am 47 year male.
your tsh level is 6.91 you can take tab. thyroxine 75 mcg. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: 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. flax oil, 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, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.

Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.
if one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units, for proper control of all symptoms. At 4.78 milli units/l if you still have any of the symptoms, then there is a need to increase the dose by about 12.5 mcg per day. That should help in bringing down tsh to the desired level. So after increasing the dosage tsh should be checked after 6 weeks. If desired level is achieved, then continue the same dosage. Thanks for the question.

Mr Nana, If she having hypothyroidism, then the treatment with thyroxine tablet has to be continued for life time. The reason for that is : There is a deficiency important hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development of brain and its functioning, daily needed for almost every metabolic activity of the body. So if it is not available internally then there has to be a regular supplementation done from out side in the form of Thyroxine tablets, hence it has to be given for lifetime.
