Mr. Lybrate-user, it appears that present treatment of diabetes is not adequate. It needs to be upgraded. Some additional drugs may be required along with that there needs to be a properly planned diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise as well as blood sugar level. Thanks.

Hello. I'm a thyroid patient from last 5 yrs. My thyroid was always in control. I took 25 mcg tablet. But frm last year it was high so I took 50 mcg. Again I went for a test. It's normal now. Should I continue with 50 mcg? And frm few days my bp is 140/90. Is it due to thyroid. I'm 23 years old. Pls help me I'm really really worried. Thank you.

Hello, Dosage of thyroxine should not be frequently changed on your own. Since you have not mentioned TSH level, it is difficult to comment. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. BP 140/90 mm Hg is high for your age. If it remains at the same level then you need to take treatment for that. Plus reduce salt intake. Thanks.

My HBa1c is 5.7 which I tested yesterday & it was 6.1 about 4 months before. Fasting sugar ranges b/w 115~120. I have lost 15 kg since last one year. I am taking 500 mg glyciphage twice daily. Also, my stomach is bad (constipation) for 8-9 months. My sleep is also not fully relaxing for many years. But, last one year or so has been really bad interns of weight loss & continuous constipation. I tried homemade remedies but not much relief. Please advice if my sugar medication is the cause of my weight loss & how do I get rid of bad stomach which is troubling me the most. I am thinking of castor oil even to have some relief. Thanks in advance.

My wife has thyroid problem and she has pregnancy, what treatment you suggest to us?
You can take 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. 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,

Hi I am 23, Female, my Tsh is 6.1, Doctor has prescribed me thyronorm 50. Its been a more than a month I am consuming this medicine but my weight does not seem to come down. I exercise a lot almost 1.5 hours 4 days a week and consume 1200 calories everyday strictly. Still my weight has increased from 50 to 55. I am really worried. Please suggest.

Arpitaji, Looking at details given your BMI is only 21.48 kg/ M2, which actually lower than normal (<23 kg/M2). Plus according to your height 160 cms, the ideal body weight should be 60 kgs, where as it is only 55 kgs. So I do not understand why you are saying that the weight is more. Further, if you are on thyroxine treatment then TSH levels should be around 3 milli units/ml. So the dosage of thyroxine is less. It needs to be increased.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, If STH is 18 mU/ L then adequate dose of thyroxine has to be taken to supplement the daily need, otherwiae all the symptoms will continue to be present. The exact dose of thyroxine depends on TSH, T4 level, body weight and sex of the person. By taking adequate dose one can control TSH very well. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

The thyroid gland within the body plays an important role in regulating your metabolism among many other functions. This is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and plays an important role within your body. However, a common condition that may afflict it is hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. It is even more of a problem if you are pregnant as it may affect your baby’s development in the womb. It has also been noticed that pregnancy in itself may cause hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism-

Pregnant women may also exhibit symptoms common to other patients who are suffering from hypothyroidism. These may include:

  1. Fatigue along with lethargy.

  2. Mild to significant weight gain.

  3. Constipation.

  4. Feeling cold with severe chills

The thyroid gland produces the T4 hormone responsible for regulating many mechanisms within the body such as metabolism. With hypothyroidism, the production of this hormone decreases or stops altogether. This is important as disruption in the production of the hormone may disrupt the normal development of your baby.

Effects of Hypothyroidism on your baby-

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy can affect your child’s developmental abilities. Many studies in this field have shown that such children tend to have learning difficulties and may even display lower IQ scores during tests. It was noticed that sometimes, hypothyroidism during pregnancy wasn’t diagnosed correctly as the pregnant mother did not show much apparent symptoms. This is also a major issue in the early diagnosis of the problem. Hence, it is absolutely imperative to test for thyroid problems early during pregnancy.

Prevention is the Best Cure-

It is thus very important that mothers be screened properly for thyroid issues even before they are pregnant and while they are pregnant. Some of the medically recommended steps that should be taken are –

  1. Screening before pregnancy as this can help to devise a solution for this condition.

  2. Women with goiter or enlarged thyroid should most certainly be screened.

  3. Women with a family history of hypothyroidism should be screened.

Treatments for Hypothyroidism During Pregnancy-

The doctors may suggest thyroid hormone replacement therapy wherein artificial T4 hormone is introduced into the body. This helps to maintain a constant rate of the thyroid hormone within the body. This can be done even before pregnancy as the developing fetus is completely dependent on the mother for its thyroid hormone until at least 12 weeks when the baby’s body can start producing it on its own. Also, the levels of this hormone should be regularly checked within the body through the TSH or the thyroid stimulating hormone tests to ensure that the levels are at a safe minimum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hello, may I know if you are taking any medicines? are you already suffering from diabetes? if no then I can tell you that your sugar after meal is above normal level but this consider you for diabetic medicines. In my opinion you should also get screened up for blood sugar fasting and hba1c test after which I can surely advice you what to do and what not to do in this condition. Thanks for asking.

Dear lybrate-user what to think. Go straight for testing fasting and p.p.blood sugar and hba1c test. Every thing will be clear. Yes it is right diabetes may run in families but obesity, sedentary habits also play role. So go ahead for testing. Every thing will be clear.

Hello is this Thyroid test normal? My endocrinologist said it is normal Free T3 2.9 pg/ml Free T4 1.4 ng/dl TSH 0.94.

Advance BHRT Certification, Fellowship in BHRT & Longevity Medicine, Fellowship in Endocrinology, MBBS

Although the lab parameters are normal, I would note that the FT3 could be considered suboptimal. If you have symptoms such as abnormal weight gain, low energy levels, dry skin, hairfall, low moods, etc, I would investigate further for metabolic imbalances and treat the same. This may or may not include Thyroid supplementation. Secondly, in cases of infertility, prediabetes or depression, I would treat with T3 supplementation rather than T4 for a period of time under close supervision.

My mother (58+ yrs) is currently under treatment for Hypothyroidism (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis (stage-2) in knee joints. Since past couple of days, she feels cramp on the right foot, which pains specially during walking, rather than resting positions. She had applied 'Oxalgin Nanogel' but the pain seems to increase gradually. Although there is no swelling on the foot or ankle, but the veins of the foot look more prominent than normal. She had faced similar problems (on either left or right foot but not both) 5-6 times in past 3-4 months, but had never happened before. Is it simply a muscle cramp or, something serious (e.g. Related to heart, kidney or liver issues) ?

This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Simple knee exercises would help to strengthen the quadriceps muscle which is the key muscle. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping a soft ball underneath the knee and you have to keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. That might be due to knee pain or it might be due to ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. Varicose veins are due to dilated, inflamed veins where there is reverse blood flow in the lower legs due to heavy density of blood. You can wear stockings to improve the blood circulation, can do leg massage using castor oil which pumps the blood and improves the blood circulation.
