Dear, please check your tsh levels. Ideally it should fall between 1 & 2. If not, then you need to get your medication doses altered. Check again after 6 weeks of altering the dose. The only way to lose the gained weight is to follow a proper diet and exercise regime. Thyroid is a lifelong illness, so take your medications properly and you should be fine.

Dear 1. First of all, if you are obese then try to reduce weight which will automatically reduce your pain by 50%. 2. Avoid forward bending, lifting heavy objects and high heel foot wears. 3. Take giloy juice 15 ml twice daily 30 minutes after food. 4. Go for ayurveda panch karma treatment, which will cure your sciatica and knee pain problem. 5. For thyroid problem do simha asan (loin posture) twice daily. Thanks

My wife diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2012, and then started 50 mcg thyroxine as prescribed by doctor. Then she got present and doctor increased dose to 100 mcg. After child birth dose reduced to 50 mcg. Now in latest report tsh level found to be 8.9. Do we need to increase thyroxine doses again.

If she is sure about taking the medicines regularly and not having missed her doses, then she will require a slight increase in her dosage. If not, then she could regularise her medicines and repeat the test after around 4 to 6 weeks and then increase the dose if the tsh is still high.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the details given it is clear that Ms. Ruchi has uncontrolled diabetes. There is no mention of TSH so it is not possible to know if hypothyroidism is well controlled or not. Ideally TSH should be around 3 mU/L. In well controlled diabetes Fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Therefore, it is clear that her present control is completely haywire. This needs to be brought under strict control. Otherwise there can be serious consequences. Thanks.

Hi, an under-functioning thyroid is a hormonal disruption that could be fixed via good eating habits and an active lifestyle. At our clinic we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification. This would be a great platform for you to be on as well.

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, if you have doubt please get a fasting and pp sugar test done and report the same. If fasting is >126 mg and pp >200mg then diabetes is confirmed.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your postprandial blood sugar is on the borderline so increase the fibre content & proteins in your diet, reduce carbs, avoid fried, processed & junk foods, take a walk for 10-15 min after meals - you require to reduce weight & if you do so then as your sugar levels come down you may not require medication - the treatment depends on your tight blood sugar control by diet & exercise - monitor blood sugar as advised by your doctor & consult him regularly with your progress.

My mother (58 yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroidism (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg), Osteoarthritis (stage-2) of knee joints (Gemcal D3) along with 'Ecod plus as multivitamin. She is recently diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.7/RBC 3.4/PCV 32.8/MCV 96) with smear report mentioning 'mild hypochromic' RBCs, although WBC (4.6 K) & Platelets (2 L) are inside normal range. The other lab parameters (TSH - 3.7, serum creatinine - 0.81 mg/dl, BUN-creatinine ratio - 19.8, ferritin - 100 ng/ml, B12 - 894 pg/ml, RBC folate - 883 ng/ml) appear within normal range. But she had lost weight (71->67 kg) during past one year. Since past one month, she experiences moderate constipation, hard stool & that's too in smaller quantity. In the context of mild anemia, does it imply a risk of stomach ulcer or tumor?

Mr. Saket, Her ideal weight should be 57 kgs. So it is fine if she has lost some weight. With present weight also her BMI is 27.01 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Constipation sometimes does occur with oral iron therapy. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salds, plus drink enough liquids. There is no other risk with mild anemia or constipation. Thanks.

If your sugar level is not down with these medicines. It means you are not following diabetic diet plan clearly. So avoid potatoes. Rice. Sweets. Etc.
