Sir, I am suffering from thyroid hypothyroidism for 8 years taking thyronorm 150 mg but now I have problem in my both legs and joint. I use tablet dexona and cetrizine as I have some problem of asthma and itching since 8 years. I also have high BP taking AGENAL AT 1 daily .I also feel problem in nerves. TSH level also increased sussagest some medicines. Thanks.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with thyroxine tablets taking adequate dose, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. High TSH level means hypothyroidism is not in control. Secondly if you are on Dexona (for what reason is not clear), that can also upset the control. For asthma there are inhalers which offer better relief. Joint and muscle pains can be due to uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Plus your weight also is much higher with a BMI of 29.16 kgs showing obesity. This could be due to uncontrolled hypothyroidism. You have not mentioned the BP readings. From the info given it looks like a re - look has to be given to the total treatment, diet, exercise and various medications being taken. Thanks.

Is thyroid and diabetics interrelated? TSH IS >150 WHEREAS T3 AND t4 ARE 0.27 and 23.8 what is the treatment suggested?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Thanks for the query. Diabetes and hypothyroidism are not inter related. They are separate diseases. TSH >150 mU/L is too high. This means there is severe hypothyroidism. Immediate treatment with levothyroxine is needed. Dosage has to be decided based on patients weight, height, TSH level and T4 levels. Plus patient has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, increase the intake of green leafy vegetables and fruits, exercise daily so as to maintain near normal weight. Thanks.

Hi! My Mother was suffering last 6-7 years in Thyroid and migraine problem, I was try lots of medicine and checkup but still not improve so please kindly suggest for better option or Doctor as soon as possible.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism there is only one medication and that is adequate dose of Levothyroxine to be taken daily early morning on empty stomach. If TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L then most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. As regards migrane it is a difficult condition to treat. Multiple remedies have to be tried, plus precaution should be taken to avoid known triggers. Thanks.

My mother's TSH is 1.98 but T4 is 15.5. What should I do? She takes Thyrox 75 mg daily. She is 64 and diabetic but diabetes is under control.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH value 1.98 mU/L and T4 15.5 ng, it appears her present dosage is a bit higher than required. Because if T4 levels go up, there can be symptoms of excess thyroxine. So there is a need for dose reduction. You can talk to her physician regarding this. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. High TSh (above 10 mU/L) suggests one has hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with synthetic thyroid hormone in adequate dose. Thanks.

Ayurvedic Remedies For Thyroid Disorder!

Ayurvedic Remedies For Thyroid Disorder!

Thyroid has become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. It is triggered due to the presence of impurities in the blood, which lead to hormonal imbalances and therefore, a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced. But in case of hyperthyroid, you will notice an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation.

Irrespective of whether you are suffering from hyperthyroid or hypothyroid, Ayurvedic treatment has some viable solutions that are aimed at elevating your health condition.

Ayurveda and thyroid

Though there is no direct mention of thyroid in the Ayurvedic texts, there are major implications that hint towards a disease like thyroid that is caused due to imbalance of body fluid and its probable treatments. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes:

1. Dietary regulations: As per Charaka, thyroid doesn’t affect those individuals who take milk in adequate quantities. In addition, you must take moong seeds, bengal gram seeds, sugarcane, cucumber, barley and old rice in optimum amounts for prevention of thyroid. In case you are already suffering from thyroid imbalance, then you must also aim at having a considerable amount of milk on a regular basis.

2. Herbs for regulating thyroid: The herb named Purple Mountain Ebony is purposely helpful in the treatment as well as proper functioning of the thyroid gland. In addition to this herb, you must also intake Punarnava, Brahmi, Jatamansi, Gokshura and Shilajita for alleviating your thyroid problems.

3. Home remedies: If there is swelling in any part of the body caused due to thyroid imbalances, then it can be properly treated by applying a fine paste of Jalakumbhi over the affected area. The juice of this paste can be administered in a small quantity of 22 grams in a span of 24 hours. It helps to increase the amount of iodine in the body which helps to fix various problems in the body. If you are experiencing a lack of energy and weakness, you can use coconut oil for boosting the sluggish metabolism of the body.

4. Yoga for treating thyroid: There are various Yogic postures, which are believed to help in the maintenance of the thyroid gland. You can practice sun salutation, fish pose and shoulder stand for alleviating your condition and get rid of all types of health issues caused from thyroid imbalances.

If you wish to get a personalised evaluation of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you.

Sir I have hypothyroidism what is the normal level of tsh. If my tsh comes to normal position should I stop taking medicine or can I change the power of medicine. I am taking eltroxin 75 mcg. I am suffering since 2007 and since then under medication. Sir I have body pain, joints pain. But after doing many treatment of RA or arthritis it did not reduce. Can this pain be for thyroid.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hypothyroidism Calcarea carb , Sepia ,Lycopodium, Graphites and Nux Vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter.  You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Hi my wife has thyroid enlargement. Recent report says thyroid gland is grown. Also it touches the throat pipe. Can anyone pl suggest to control the growth of thyroid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Null, Thanks for the query. The reason thyroid grows is because of hypofunction, there is an extra amount of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) secreted, that makes the gland size go up. This invariably signifies low thyroxine hormone levels leading to hypothyroidism. Usual cause is iodine deficiency. There is no mention of her thyroid hormone levels (T3, T4 & TSH), as it is important from the point of view of treatment. She may also have to undergo an Ultra Sono graphy of the gland to what kind of changes are present and if there are any nodules inside. Please get these tests done and come back. Then I will be able to guide specifically. Also please tell me if she has any symptoms related to either low thyroxine or high thyroxine. Thanks.

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

The thyroid gland is a tiny gland that produces the hormones which affect the body's metabolic process. When these hormones are produced in less or more quantities, it may result in an imbalance of the thyroid gland, leading to a range of thyroid issues including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and others. Overproduction or underproduction of the thyroid hormones can also cause a variety of other symptoms and conditions. While this affects the state of one's general well being, health and weight, it also has an effect on the patient's libido.

Let us learn more about the link between thyroid and sex:

  • Thyroid in Men: Men who are suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism as well as related conditions like goitre or Garves Disease, have complained of sex related problems. These problems are known to affect at least 50% to 60% of the patients, as per various medical reports. The sex related issues include premature ejaculation, low sex drive, delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and others.
  • Thyroid in Women: It has been found that almost 10% of women over the age of 50 suffer from some form or the other of thyroid hormone imbalance. Apart from fatigue, depression and muscle ache as well as weight alteration, depending on the type of thyroid problem, thyroid patients who are women have also experienced problems when it comes to libido. Sexual dysfunction and arousal problems are high on the list of these issues.
  • Hormonal Treatment: One of the most common ways of treating this sex related thyroid problems for thyroid patients is through the use of hormonal therapy. Besides getting the testosterone, estrogen and other androgen levels checked, the patient must also get a full hormonal evaluation along with a check-up of the adrenal function. This can help in pointing any anomalies and the hormones that will require replacement with the help of appropriate medication.
  • Optimal Drug Treatment: A T4 only drug or Levothyroxine can lead to a resolution of sexual problems that one encounters as a part of thyroid problems. There are many doctors who may switch to a T3 drug once the libido is restored and brought back to normal.
  • Supplements: Men may require testosterone supplements, while women may need estrogen or progesterone supplements to tackle the sexual problems in such cases. These can be rendered as a patch or through an injection.
  • Sex Therapy: In many cases, sex therapy considered as a popular and effective form of addressing the problems and helping the patients get around the same. This is especially helpful if depression is one of the symptoms of the thyroid disorder.

A thorough physical check-up also helps in treating such problems for thyroid patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

I am 29 years old male I have gone through thyroid test and my report is as follows T3- 118 T4 - 6.9 TSH-8.72 should I take some medicine for increased TSH.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your TSH level is high. It falls in the sub-clinical hypothyroidism. In this condition usually not treated. Only when TSH goes above 10 mU/L But if a person has troublesome symptoms even when TSH is lower than 10 mU/L, then treatment is initiated. So please tell me the reasons why you were advised for getting the thyroid test. Thanks.

I am taking Thyroxine sodium 100 mcg 1 tablet daily for thyroid, no tested again Which results: Total triiodothyronine T3: 1.17 Total thyroxine :10.50 Thyroid Stimulating hormones: 6.57 (0.35-5.50) So my question is :should I continue the same dose or increase or decrease my dose, please reply. Thanks in advance.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please let me know the age of the patient plus are there any symptoms present related to hypothyroidism? Unless those details are known, it is difficult to say whether dose needs to be increased. Usually when on treatment TSh should be maintained around 3 to4 mU/L, particularly in adults. In older people a slightly higher level of TSH does not really matter. In fact it offers certain protection. So please answer my questions. Thanks.

My thyroid tsh result is 0.13ulu/mL (0.45-4.5) and t4 is 1.06 ng/dl. I am taking 100 mcg tablet for a day. After the blood result ,please mention my dose.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for query. It appears the present dose a bit high. You can cut it to 87.5 mcg per day. On treatment TSH should be around 3 to 4 mU/L, so you can reduce the dose as mentioned and then check TSH after 8 weeks. To see if that has helped. Thanks.

Your thyroid report is with in normal range, but if you are taking medicine then this report is due to the effect of medicine and when you stop taking that medicine, there are chances that your report may become out of range.
