acne some times happen due to some hormonal changes, but usually these are temporary. Still there are some specific acne relieving creams etc which can be considered. As regards the skin looking dull, if hypothyroidism is not in control, skin does look dry and dull. On treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If this is achieved skin should look normal.

HI Arsalan The risk of your children getting T1D is about 5%. There is nothing that can be done to prevent that but early detection will prevent complications of T1D. Hope this was usefull to you.

My mother (57+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroid (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis of knee joints (stage-2). Around 7-8 months back, she was diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.6), which got corrected (Hb 12.4) after 2-3 months usage of 'Orofer XT' Around a week back, all of a sudden, she seems to feel lot of gas & indigestion & had to pass motion 15-16 times, out of which last 3-4 times are loose, while rest are normal. She also had stomach pain (around naval chord), which gets relieved after passing motion. This motion got stopped after taking couple of 'Lopamide' tablets in the evening. She was also seen by a medicine doctor on the same day, who had prescribed the following medicines - 1) Citran CT - twice daily for 5-days 2) Vigilac - twice daily for 10-days 3) PAN-D - empty stomach for 5-days. The antibiotic was stopped couple of days back, but she seems to have stomach pain & loose motion (3-times) yesterday evening. Also, she feels gas is not reduced much & she does not have appetite along with weakness. When we talked to the doctor over phone, he advised to continue PAN-D for 2 more weeks & nothing else. Are we on the right track of treatment ?

I am hypothyroid and daily taking 100 mcg eltroxin since 10 years .Is there any side effects, please suggest.
lybrate-user, If you are tolerating the drug, then there is absolutely no problem. It is just like the natural hormone secreted by thyroid gland. In hypothyroidism there is almost nil production of this hormone, so it has to be supplemented daily for lifetime. When you are on treatment it is essential that TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are well controlled. So please do check TSH level periodically. Thanks.

I am a thyroid patient - I have facing problems on hair loss any remedies.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

YOU CAN USE HAIR OIL MENOXIDIL APPLY ON HAIR TWICE A WEEK. Some physicians feel that ferritin levels -- ferritin is the stored form of iron -- are integral to healthy hair growth, and that levels that are not optimal may contribute to hair loss, or impede hair regrowth. Have your ferritin levels checked, and if not optimal -- Sara Gottfried, MD says that levels below 80 are not optimal for thyroid patients suffering hair loss -- talk to your doctor about supplementing with iron.In some cases, your dermatologist may recommend that you try drug treatments. The two popular drugs for hair loss -- Rogaine and Propecia -- both interfere with DHT's ability to destroy hair follicles. Neither drug is safe to use during pregnancy, however, and so they are not as commonly used in women of child-bearing age. Rogaine, the brand name for minoxidil, is available without a prescription. Women typically use a 2% minoxidil solution applied to the scalp twice a day, and men use a 5% solution. Improvements with minoxidil are slow - it may take months to see any improvement, and a year or more for any dramatic change in hair loss and regrowth. To maintain improvements, minoxidil needs to be continued daily. Propecia, the brand name for finasteride, is a prescription drug taken in pill form. It is not to be used by women in child-bearing years because of its ability to cause serious birth defects, but it has been shown to help some women. Propecia does not, however, appear to be any more effective than minoxidil, and like minoxidil, it can take a year to see results, and must be taken for life to maintain regrowth.

Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly.

Mr. Lybrate-user, from your height and weight it is clear that bmi is 25 kgs/m2, showing mild over weight. If you do not have hypothyroidism, then properly planned diet and regular exercise of more than 1 hour or preferably joining a gym and doing a workout under the guidance of a professional trainer is going to be more beneficial. In the diet you should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, sweetened aerated drinks, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, red meat, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products & highly processed food products. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking completely. You might increase protein food intake daily, by taking 2 to 3 eggs. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, use whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid all products made of refined flour like maida. Rigorous exercise will definitely help you shed extra fat including that on the face. Thanks.

Diet modification. Don't take sugars in any form. Restrict free carbohydrates in diet like potatoes and rice and corn. Daily 30 minutes activity in form of jogging cycling and if you are obese- reduce weight things would get under control by these measures only. Monitor HBa1C levels every 3 months to see if things are going ok or not.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Thyroid function tests should be done every 6 weeks initially till its normal. Then every 3 months. The dose is adjustable according to bodyweight symptoms. Other tests which should be done CBC WITH ESR USG NECK LFT LIPID PROFILE PPBS Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care
