Priyankaji, you have asked three different queries, - yoga is better or gym, you have hypothyroidism and want to conceive. Doing yoga or gym choice is yours. I would do both. Regarding conception, if hypothyroidism is not well controlled, conception is not possible. To conceive tsh has to be lower, around 2 milli units/l. The recommendation is throughout the pregnancy is: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. With this fetal evelopment is good, pregnancy out comes are good. Even efforts to reduce weight are fruitful only when tsh level is between 3 to 4 milli units. If you have any dubts please do come back. Thanks for the question.

I am 27 year old, recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism 6 months back, currently on 50ug thyronorm for 3 months and now Sep-17 I am 5 weeks pregnant, my TSH value currently is 6.37 and my doctor told to continue with same 50ug only, my doubt is to increase the thyronorm dosage from 50 ug or not as my gynecologist told it's fine usually tsh values will fluctuate and no need to increase dose of 50 ug.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you are pregnant it is necessary to maintain TSH in the following manner: 1st trimester :0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester: 0.2 to 2.5 mU/L & 3rd trimster: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/L. These levels are very critical for proper development of fetus and desired outcome of the pregnancy. Hence you have to increase the dose by at least 12.5 mcg to 25 mcg per day, then check TSH after 4 weeks. If the level is within the recommended range for that period of pregnancy, then continue the same dose. If level is higher than the recommended then there has to be a further increase in dosage of levothyroxine by 12.5 mcg. I hope things are clear. It is wrong to say that TSH levels fluctuate. So please increase the dosage. If you have any doubts please come back. Take care. Thanks.

I have a longer menstrual cycle almost 35-40 days cycle. I had my last menstrual period on August 6th. I'm pregnant. So till date the pregnancy should be 11 weeks but in the ultrasound scan it is measuring to be only 6 weeks with a sac and no heartbeat. Adding to this I have hypothyroidism for which I'm taking medication. What could be the reason the pregnancy is measuring less in age please? Or is it normal to people who have irregular or longer cycle of menstruation? I didn't have any cramping or bleeding till now. Kindly suggest on this. I'm worried. Also on 30th September the gestational sac measured 1.4 cm and then on 6th October it measured 1.6 cm. Had my HCG blood test done and it is around 27829.2 mIU/ml which is in the range expected for 6-8 weeks pregnant.

you may show heart beat later since periods were always delayed, accordingly ovulation would have been later than expected 14 th day of cycle reason for small for date fetus another reason can be due to medicines for low thyroid which increases the metabolic rate to the extent that the baby gets affected inversely and stops growing. thyroid medicines should be avoided during first three months and given later with caution depending upon levels of thyroid hormone circulating in the blood good for you that hcg levels are good get tested again rising levels of hcg hormone indicate a growing fetus

Hi I hope she has got her iron studies test done to confirm that she has iron deficiency anaemia. If yes, then she needs to have lots of green leafy vegetables, pulses like rajma, peas, beans, pistachios (in limited quantity). Your mother needs diabetic dose adjustment or change as her blood sugar are uncontrolled. Regular walking for atleast 20 min a day is important.

Is Excess Sugar Impacting Your Sex Life?

Is Excess Sugar Impacting Your Sex Life?

Sugar is an important source of calories in the body as it can provide immediate energy to the body after consumption. Sugar being a simple carbohydrate is digested quickly and released into the bloodstream to be used as energy. However, too much sugar in the bloodstream at once can cause a host of disorders in the body including affecting one's sex life. Outlined below are the ways how sugar adversely affects sex life-

1. Impairs the gene that regulates sex hormones - Glucose and fructose are synthesized in the liver, where the excess is converted into fat. When fat synthesis rate goes up in the body, it affects SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) gene in the body. This gene is responsible for regulating the levels of testosterone and estrogen in the body. Hence, in this case, the affected person becomes highly susceptible to infertility.
2. Lowers testosterone levels - Indulging in a diet that consists of too much sugar affects insulin resistance. Due to this, testosterone levels drop in both men and women. This causes disorders related to sexual function such as erectile dysfunction and also reduces sex drive.
3. Fatigue and reduced energy levels - Foods high in sugar cause temporary spikes in blood sugar which in turn results in fatigue, thus reducing sex drive. It also decreases levels of Orexin, a neurotransmitter that regulates feelings of arousal in the body, causing fatigue and lethargy.
4. Increases stress - Increased stress levels as a result of sugar consumption occur when high insulin levels cause the body to produce cortisol, a stress hormone. Too much cortisol in the body decreases libido. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all the symptoms associated with hypothyroidism will go away once tsh level drops below 4 mu/l. It takes a few weeks for that.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Lithium in large doses can affect kidneys. Even uncontrolled diabetes also can affect kidneys. Whether one takes 600 mg or a SR (sustained release) tablet both can affect kidney when used for a long time. Similarly if blood glucose is uncontrolled that too damages the filtering unit of the kidney. Thanks.

What are the symptoms diabetes and what are the precautions or cure for diabetes.

What are the symptoms diabetes and what are the precautions or cure for diabetes.
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

Hello, even if you have diabetes, it is possible to join a gym and build muscles. Based on your sugar level, weight and extent of exercise your diet should be based. But first thing is to achieve a strict blood sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 6.8. Then you will have to take extra proteins to build muscles.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 7.55 mU/L, is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Usually it is not requiring any treatment. However, if a person has any troublesome symptoms related to hypothyroidism, then treatment is given. As regards taking the tablet for life time, if a person develops hypothyroidism, which means deficiency of the essential hormone thyroxine, which is needed for day to day functioning of almost all the metabolic functions of the body, so it has to be supplemented for the life. There is no option. Thanks.

To control hypothyroidism thyroxine is required. However, guidelines usually say to start treatment when tsh levels cross 10 milli units, as between 5.5 to about 9.9 milli units it is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism. Unless a person has definite symptoms of thyroid deficiency treatment is not started with thyroxine. Even if it is given a lower dose is recommended. To begin with 100 mcg dosage was a bit too high. That is the reason your tsh levels have gone down to 0.082 milli units / ml. Even now the dose of 75 mcg is high. With treatment tsh should be in the range of 3 to 4 milli units / ml so you may reduce the dose.
