I am a 32 year old female, I had a thyroid problem from last 4 yrs, at that time the doctor suggested 100 mcg has to take daily, from last 4 yrs I am using that much dose. Some well wishers saying that it is high dose so consult a doctor now they will reduce the dose. But when ever I take a blood test it shows thyroid normal. From last one month I did not taken any medicine for thyroid and now I take a blood test then it showing t3, t4 is normal and tsh is 8.39 which is abnormal, so please suggest me that I need to take 100 mcg medicine for thyroid?

I got my thyroid results. It is hyperthyroidism. Doctor suggests to go for radioactive iodine. What to do? Are there any alternative treatments?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, hyperthyroidism is treated in the following manner: 1) using anti thyroid drugs like methimazole, carbimazole or propylthiouracil. One of these drugs is given for a period of 18 to 24 months. This causes suppression of thyroid gland. Occasionally after 18 to 24 months normal function returns. Treatment is discontinued. However, in many cases suppression does not occur. Then other options are considered. 2) radio active iodine: this is given in a small dose, absorbed by thyroid gland. It destroys the secreting cells. Thyroid function is lost, hypothyroidism develops. Patient has to then take thyroxine hormone for life time. 3) surgical removal of the gland: this is another option employed in some patients. After surgery patient develops hypothyroidism and has to be treated by thyroxine for lifetime. Thanks.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

Hi, if you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, then tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units / l and if you want to get conception then tsh levels should be 0.1 to 2.0 milli units/l and through out pregnancy again the levels have to be around 2 milli units only. If tsh levels go higher, fetal growth is affected, miscarriages may occur, over all pregnancy out comes are bad. So please keep that in mind and then plan for pregnancy. Thanks for the question.

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Thyroid is one among the many glands in the endocrine system, whose secreted hormones regulate and maintain various metabolic activities. Thyroid problem, in generic terms, refers to a situation where there is an abnormal secretion of the thyroid hormone. The secretion can either be abundant, causing what is known as hyperthyroidism, or insufficient which, in turn is known as hypothyroidism. Both of these conditions are detrimental to health affecting not only your body weight but also the growth of bones and hair. Though different branches of medicines are constantly dabbling with this problem, Homeopathy is the most preferred choice.

Some of the reasons for it are:

  1. Treats severe sweating, problems in menstruation and constipation: One of the most important advantages of Homeopathy medicines is that each one of them is equipped to treat a host of ailments. The condition, hypothyroidism is symptomatic of excessive sweating on the head, constipation and problems in menstruating in women. All of these can be cured by the intake of Calcarea Carbonica.
  2. Cures paleness of skin, tendencies of fainting and hair fall: This is another characteristic of hypothyroidism, wherein you suffer from pale, yellow skin and are unable to bear extreme cold temperatures due to the lack of vitality and body heat.  At the same time, women in their menopause tend to suffer from excessive hair fall. In all of these situations, a Homeopathic medicine called Sepia Officinalis is extremely beneficial in curbing these.
  3. Does not create overt reliance on medicines: Hyperthyroidism is a condition that is marked by nervousness and anxiety. Though allopathic medicines have always been preferred to others, it must also been considered that in their attempt to cure, they end up creating an overt reliance of medicines in the patients.
  4. Suits everybody: The primary reason for preferring Homeopathy to others is their complete lack of any side-effect. Both allopathy and ayurveda may or may not work on certain individuals. However, that is not the case for Homeopathy as it does not adopt any artificial means to cure thyroid problems, rather uses natural means to regulate the secretion of the thyroid gland.

Best Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally:

  1. Eat Healthy Fats (Including Coconut Oil and Avocados)
  2. Supplement with Adaptogen Herbs
  3. Balance Your Intake of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Fats
  4. Improve Gut Health & Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
  5. Eliminate Toxic Kitchen, Beauty and Body Care Products
  6. Exercise (Especially Interval Training)
  7. Reduce Stress & Get More Sleep
  8. Watch Your Caffeine & Alcohol Intake
  9. Back Off Birth Control Pills
  10. Supplement with Vitamin D3

What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?

What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?
In your daily diet, Methi (fwnugreek)seeds, sweet potatoes, turmeric and cinnamon have specific anti diabetes properties. Amla and cocum have indirect benefits. Have them part of your daily diet. But four items are specifically antidiabetic. 1. Rice. 2. Potatoes 3. Fried food in oil and ghee 4. Sweet. Avoid them forever. But having any one of the items once in a while is not harmful. Small amount of desi ghee with roti is good. But don't overdo anything. Eat 200 g of fruity and 100 g of leafy vegetables everyday. Find a good doctor and follow his/her advise always.

If you are indeed a type 2 diabetic, then there are more tablets available that could be used. However, some persons who are initially thought to be type 2 diabetics are infact having other types of diabetes which might require insulin. If you are the latter type, then only insulin n might not suffice.

Mr Nana, If she having hypothyroidism, then the treatment with thyroxine tablet has to be continued for life time. The reason for that is : There is a deficiency important hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development of brain and its functioning, daily needed for almost every metabolic activity of the body. So if it is not available internally then there has to be a regular supplementation done from out side in the form of Thyroxine tablets, hence it has to be given for lifetime.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have no diabetes then taking coconut water is not harmful at all. The amount of glucose in that is not very high. In fact other foods like pastries, bakery items, junk foods are more harmful. So you need not worry. You may also take more proteins like 2 or 3 eggs a day, plus exercise to build muscles and strength.

Hii I was with thyroid with tsh 9.81 and taking thyrox-50 but after 3 month now with tsh level is 1.94 ulU/ml so my qst is 1) please tell me now is this the suitable tsh level for pregnancy? 2) do I need to continue thyrox-50 or reduce to thyrox-25?

MBBS, DNB

Kindly continue the same dose of levothyroxine. DONOT REDUCE THE DOSE. The requirement of medication would increase during pregnancy. Hence repeat the test when pregnancy is detected. Keep taking the medicine during the pregnancy especially during first 13 weeks when fetuses thyroid is yet to begin functioning and its need for levothyroxine are met through the mother. Regards.

Black coffee is very strong for your stomach. Probably your trainer knows better. I am not aware of its benefits. Make sure that you use pure honey as most of them are sugar syrup. You need to control your diet and do regular exercise to prevent diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in diabetes some times gastrointestinal symptoms keep occurring. Patient may get frequent or loose motions or constipation on and often. This can not easily prevented. But proper diet, regular bowel habits and regular exercise can help. Sometimes uncontrolled hyperglycemia also affects gastrointestinal function and normal peristalsis. When blood glucose is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <6.8. Occasionally drugs may be useful like loparamide to stop loose motions. Thanks.
