Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Start with a lower dose initially, then check TSH levels after 2 months and if level is still too low, then switch to a higher dose. Thanks.

Don’t decrease or stop the dose. This is normal thyroid value. Get repeat tests after one month. Hair fall can be due to other reasons also like iron deficiency or vitamin deficiency.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 0.87 mU/L, is within the normal range. Which means your present dosage of thyroxine is working very well. There is no reason to alter the dosage. All the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check when TSH is within the desired range. But hair fall takes more time to stop. Please do not alter or reduce the dose. Thanks.

Doctor advised me to take thyroid medicine Eltroxin 12. 5 mcg in morning before breakfast but I am working in night shift, my shift starts at 6.30 pm in evening and shift over at 3.30 am in morning so I take my breakfast in evening at 5.30 pm, so kindly suggest me when should take the Thyroid medicine in morning or in evening, what timing would be best to take thyroid medicine Eltroxin because I am working in night shift.

It is quite simple. Take your thyroid medicine immediately upon awakening and don't take anything orally for at least half an hour after this. So if you are working night shift and wake up at 4 pm, then you should take Eltroxin at 4 pm. If your shift changes then you need to change the timing of thyroid meds accordingly. In case your shifts change frequently then I am afraid your body will have to bear the brunt of this stress. You will have to make a major effort to maintain your health.

I am on Thyronorm 12. 5 mcg for 4 years. Recently when the TSH was not in range (6.67) so I increased the dose to 25 mcg. After 90 days the TSH is <0.01uIU/ml and T4 is 13. 5ug/dl. Should I stop taking Thyronorm now?

Common symptoms of Hypothyroidism are - Low energy, weight gain, hairfall, dry skin, depression, irregular mensus, constipatiom, etc.It is important to realize that in young girls, hypothyroidism may lead to PCOS, infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy diabetes, fetal issues. Most cases need Thyroid supplementation long term / life long. Regarding top foods to balance female hormones, the list is long. It is better to customize foods to your specific requirement.

Hi there. Your TSH, FT3, FT4 all are within normal limits. No need of any concern. You are not suffering from thyroid illness. Your thyroid is still normal after 9-10 years. Your RA quantitative is raised, while your anti-CCP is within normal limits. Uric acid is normal and ESR is either normal or borderline depending upon which type it is. Again, no need of any concern. As far as treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is concerned, you may or may not require treatment depending upon your symptoms. As a rule, we treat patients, not reports. So, if you have symptoms or signs of R.A. You might need treatment. Otherwise, not. I have special interest in Rheumatoid illnesses and have acquired good experience in treatment of these conditions. Feel free to consult in case you require further help. All the best .and have a great day.

Selenium and zinc are directly involved with thyroid hormone levels and not antibodies level. Main treatment of Hashimoto is controlling TSH levels and not Ab levels.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are absolutely normal. TSH range is 0.3 to 5.5 mU/L. In some labs it is shown as 0.4 to 4.5 mu/L. Therefore 1.47 mU/L is within the normal range. There is no reason to worry. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism: 5 Foods To Avoid

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Hypothyroidism: 5 Foods To Avoid

The thyroid is a small gland located on the neck. When the thyroid gland functions normally, it is easy to ignore it but an underactive or overactive thyroid gland can cause a number of problems. An underactive thyroid gland is known as hypothyroidism. In this case, the gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. This, in turn, lowers metabolism. Your diet plays a large role in influencing the functioning of the thyroid gland. Some of the foods you should avoid in cases of hypothyroidism are:

Cruciferous Vegetables
This includes vegetables such as cabbage, bok choi, kale, sprouts, and broccoli. These vegetables restrict the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine which in turn lowers the functionality of the thyroid gland. While you do not need to completely avoid these vegetables, you should restrict their intake to less than 5 ounces each day. Cooking these vegetables can also help reduce their effect.

Soy
Soy products are rich in plant-based phytoestrogen. This hormone interferes with the body’s ability to use the thyroid hormone. It can worsen hypothyroidism and even increase the risk of hypothyroidism. However, this has not been scientifically proven and hence there are no specific dietary guidelines on how much should be eaten. To be on the safe side, consume soy products in moderation and avoid them whenever possible.

Fatty Foods
Hypothyroidism is yet another reason to avoid fatty foods. Fats interfere with the body’s ability to absorb thyroid hormone as well as thyroid hormone replacement drugs. It also lowers the production of thyroid hormone and thus aggravates hypothyroidism. Ideally, you should avoid fatty foods such as red meat, fatty fish, butter, mayonnaise etc. You should also avoid foods that are deep fried. Instead, try steaming or baking your food.

Sugar
Many dieticians refer to sugar as empty calories. These calories do not have any nutrients but can slow down the body’s metabolism rate. It also leads to weight gain that furthers aggravates hypothyroidism as well as other lifestyle disorders such as diabetes. Limit your sugar consumption to 1-2 spoons a day or try and eliminate it completely. You could also try replacing sugar with honey to sweeten your tea.

Excess Fiber
An excessive amount of anything including fiber can be detrimental to the body. Too much fiber can create complications in the treatment of hypothyroidism. Thus, you should not consume more than 35 grams of fiber a day. This can take the form of whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and beans.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is essential to maintain TSH level around 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms. Hence, it is clear that present dosage of thyroxine (75 mcg) is not adequate. Please increase it by 12.5 mcg and then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, to see if the desired level is reached. At that level all the symptoms will disappear. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. TSH 10 mU/L, is showing he has hypothyroidism which needs to be treated with adequate dose of levothyroxine. It is necessary to maintain TSH around 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. He should avoid soy beans, soy containing products and should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid bakery items and foods made of maida. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour. Thanks.

Is thyroid a curable disease? Give a diet plan on what to eat and what should not eat for a thyroid patient.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please explain what particular condition are you referring by saying "thyroid disease" Because there are two major conditions: hypothyroidism and hyperthyrpoidism. There is no specific diet for thyroid disease. Only if someone has hypothyroidism then soy beans and soy containing products should be avoided. Plus one should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Should avoid maida and products made from it. Thanks.

Thyroid Problems And Its Homeopathic Treatments!

Thyroid Problems And Its Homeopathic Treatments!

It is extremely remarkable to note how homeopathic treatments have gained immense acceptance and recognition in the field of modern-day treatment procedures, offering the most effective and safe medication options. A number of thyroid problems can, in fact, be alleviated with the help of homeopathic remedies, also saving you the trouble of encountering unwanted and unforeseen side effects of the normal prescription drugs. The most common problems pertaining to the thyroid gland are possibly hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Both the conditions can be cured with utmost efficacy when the right drugs are prescribed.

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathy

Hypothyroidism is the medical condition wherein the thyroid gland underperforms and produces insufficient amount of hormones required for the normal functioning of the body. The most effective homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are:

  1. Nux Vomica: This remedy is usually recommended to those patients who suffer from extreme temperament and ones who feel chilly often without any particular reason. Obstinate constipation in the patients is also curbed by this medicine. Women with prolonged periods are also prescribed Nux Vomica to decrease the incidence of period related problems.
  2. Lycopodium Clavatum: Patients of hypothyroidism who complain of gastric troubles are the ones who usually opt for Lycopodium Clavatum. Excessive hair fall as a result of hypothyroidism can also be cured with it.
  3. Calcera Carbonica: It is usually ranked as the best medicine for treating hypothyroidism, especially in patients who suffer from cold feet, extreme fatigue, and bowel problems.

Hyperthyroidism And Homeopathy

A condition wherein the thyroid gland tends to be overactive and produces more than the requisite level of hormones is usually referred to as a classic case of hyperthyroidism. Homeopathic treatments for this abnormality aim at treating the root causes to achieve best results:

  1. Lachesis Mutus: Hyperthyroidism patients who persistently complain of rising body heat are prescribed this. It also lessens the problems of fatigue and queasiness.
  2. Iodium: Patients who lose their weight quickly despite maintaining a healthy diet are prescribed doses of Iodium. Anxiousness and fatigue are also cured along with other problems.
  3. Conium Maculatum: Patients who suffer from acute depression and refuse to participate in day-to-day activities are generally given this. Trembling and profuse perspiration are treated effectively with the help of Conium Maculatum.
