I am 21 years old Male. I have thyroid problem. Today I went for test. In blood test, the result is 24.3 of TSH test. What does it mean? M I alright? Or not?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 24.3 is very high, suggesting uncontrolled hypothyroidism. It means your current dosage of thyroxine too less, needs to be increased. If you allow the level to remain high, then all the symptoms of hypothyroidism will be back in full. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. In hypothyroidism one has to avoid soy beans and foods containing soy ingredients. All other things are fine. Also avoid bakery items, pastries and foods made out of maida. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Thanks.

I have some soreness in my back but other than that I have not increased in weight. I have good appetite. What tablet should I take to increase my vitamin B12 levels. Should I worry about my TSH values. I do not know my T3 / T4 values yet.

Hello Dr. Mujhe thoda thyroid he saans fulti he aur thakaan b rehti he mujhe. Ab mujhe kya karna chahiye.
If you go for allopathix rx there they will give you replacement therapy thyroxine as substitute and it will be lifelong you have to take and it will increase in dosage also And ultimatly vicious cycle Whereas in homeopathy we prescribe after casetaking and then selecting most similimum so as to stimulate your thyroid to produce thyroxine within span of few years your own thyroid will start working and there will be no need to take any supplement thyroxine from outside And your all medicines will be stopped.

Cauliflower/ mustered oil/ soyaben product avoid in hypothyroid. Do blood tests i.e. Vit. E, vit. B12, vit. D3. And send reports for betters advise. Use k-natural hair oil daily in head-hairs.

Mr. lybrate-user Prasanth, Thanks for the query. Thyroid gland can be palpated (felt) better by standing behind the patient and plcing the fingers on the gland and feeling it. It can also be felt from the front also. Plus patient is also asked to drink water to see if the swelling is visible and moves with swallowing movement. These are methods to see and feel the swollen gland. Thanks.

Dear Sahista Hemorrhoids can be safely dealt with internal Homeopathic medication and in due time it will recover along with the meds you need to follow certain precautions and dietary changes for effective and speedy cure. For now take the medicine Nux 200 once daily in evening followed by Aesculus Hip 200 in morning for a weeks time and consult back for proper treatment.

Main pregnant hona chahti hu lekin pregnancy ho nahi pa rahi he thoda thyroid aaya he check up me aur swelling aayi he please mujhe bataye me kese pregnant ho sakti hu.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To conceive apart from having proper ovulation and it is essential to have healthy sperms too. So it is necessary to check the husband's sperm counts, healthy sperms etc. Plus if you have hypothyroidism then it is essential to have TSH level <2 mU/l. So please check these things and come back. Thanks.
27 years old male from Patna asked
I am 27 years old with no medical history and normal t3 and t4 levels but my tsh is 12.5.since I am suffering from hypothyroidism can you suggest me a levothyroxine tablet and it's dose. I would be grateful.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query You should start with a dose of 75 mcg daily, to begin with. Then check TSH again after 6 weeks, if the level remains high (above 3 mU/L) then there has to be further increase in the dose. You will have to check TSH every 6 to 8 weeks till the levels are stabilsed to about 2 to 3 mU/L. Thanks.

28 years old female from Bikaner asked
I was suffering from hypothyroidism since last 9 months but this tym my report has come normal so should I continue taking medicine? I am also overweight I do exercise but m getting zero result what should I do as due to this I have severe ankle pain.
Your thyroid results normal because you are taking thyroid hormone if you stop taking your medicine your results will be more or less same as before. Hence please continue your medicines and get your TSH testing regularly. To reduce weight diet control you also necessary along with exercise. Your diet should be low calorie, low fat and high fibre. You should take a lot of vegetables and salad in your diet.

Mr. lybrate-user. Gone through your problem some times this feeling remains in some cases due to cutting and some involvement of nerve but mostly it resolves in few months. I hope you should be alright get other test done Like D3 &B12 and consult a physician also for other possibilities.
27 years old male from Patna asked
I am 27 years old with normal t3 and t4 but tsh is 13. I am gaining some weight for some time now. I know I am suffering from hypothyroidism. I have no medical history and I don't take any medicine. Sometimes I have high BP and since childhood I have joint pain. I have decided to go for morning walks and healthy food habits. Will it work or I need medicine for hypothyroidism. Are my tsh levels serious at this age?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that you are aware of having hypothyroidism. This a hormone (Thyroxine) deficiency disease, hence there is a need for supplementation of that hormone on daily basis for lifetime. Adapting a modified lifestyle with regular exercise and proper die etc, is good but that will not "cure" hypothyroidism or even prevent t. There is no option but take levothyroxine tablets in a specified dose daily for lifetime. Otherwise all the problems associated with hypothyroidism will be troubling for the whole life. These include weight gain, swelling of face, lower limbs, sluggish heart rate, tiredness, fatigue, dry skin & hair, hair fall, muscle and joint pains, intolerance to cold, anxiety, difficulty in speech and in concentration and many more. So my suggestion is please initiate the treatment right away. Thanks.

Hello Dr. .mujhe thyriod h tsh 5.8 hai weight 67 hai .aur ovary me toda swelling hai .mai last 4 month se baby plan kar rahi hu .but nai ho pa rah h .mai thyriod k liye 25 mg ki medicine le rahi hu .mujhe period regular aate h .dr ne harmony F medicine lene ko kaha h .dr kya meri problm bahut badi h jisse mujhe baby concieve nai ho payega.
Thanks for the query. It is good to know that you are looking for a baby. For that please understand that it is absolutely essential to achieve a very good control of hypothyroidism. Your TSh should be maintained around 2 mU/L, for conception to occur and even during the pregnancy too TSH has to be maintained around that, for proper development of the fetus and healthy expected out come of the pregnancy. So you will have to increase the dose of thyroxine to 50 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks. If it has come down o the level mentioned above, then it is good. If not there has to be a further increase in the dose. Simultaneously you need to exercise and take a restricted diet, so that you are able to loos at least 5 to 7 kgs of weight, before conception sets in. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

You are suffering from sub clinical hypothyroidism and this has been revealed by the high TSH. Please continue taking Thyronorm at 12.5 daily. It is very difficult to pinpoint the source of the allergen and you must keep a careful watch on all food items/ drugs which aggrevate this condition. You must avoid anything under suspicion.

I have hashimoto thyroiditis. Total thyroidectomy 3 years ago. My tsh is 180 and stays that level. Feel awful and er does not seem to care. Im on synthroid 200 mcg. Is something I should be worried about?
Usual requirent of thyroid hormone is less than 200 micrograms for hypothyroid. And it seldom requires 300 micrograms or more, and in that situation one should look for malabsorption, drug interaction or poor compliane as the cause. Please consult an Endocrinologist.

Infertility is not a disease, but a derangement- a condition where the couple is unable to conceive. The patient may have tried the help of ART=Assisted Reproductive Treatment, starting from simple medication to expensive and invasive procedures, IVF, ICSI, PGD etc. These can lead to anything from derangement in the normal physiology, to gross irreversible pathology, leading to iatrogenic complications. Numerous infertility cases have been treated successfully with homeopathic medicine and they have been reported on homeopathic medical journals. All these cases show how homeopathic treatment restored overall health and helped women, who were previously infertile conceive and have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Homeopathic remedies can help infertile couples achieve pregnancy even if there are physical conditions that can prevent the implantation of the embryo contributing to infertility or miscarriages .

Thyroid disease depends on many factors like genetics, foods and stress..... and having the stress of all this treatment and investigations etc... can trigger the process fast.. It can be cured permanently by homoeoapthic medicines... if you are prescribed an indicated matching medicine and you take it for long enough..
