Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.

Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.
if one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units, for proper control of all symptoms. At 4.78 milli units/l if you still have any of the symptoms, then there is a need to increase the dose by about 12.5 mcg per day. That should help in bringing down tsh to the desired level. So after increasing the dosage tsh should be checked after 6 weeks. If desired level is achieved, then continue the same dosage. Thanks for the question.

You should try to control by lifestyle modifications and diet modification. If not controlled this way, take required medicines. Consult in private on Lybrate or personally with information about your main complains, lifestyle, lab results and diet for detailed advice.

Thanks for the query. Yes all the vegetables and fruits mentioned are good even for a diabetic person. However, banana should be eaten a bit less. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your misery, you need not worry. Maybe your morning tablet is getting too strong. I assume you are not taking protein supplement and nerve vitamins which could lead to these issues. You may have a proper consult with me. I suggest you to contact me with Fasting ,2 hrs post lunch blood sugar and HBA1c reports. We can do some diabetes education and counselling too.

Mr. lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present following things (foods, veges) need to be avoided - soy beans, soy containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard, radish and coffee. The reason for avoiding these products is that they affect thyroxine absorption and action. But some times other than soy beans and soy products rest of the things can be taken, but well after 4 hours of the dosage of thyroxine. Plus you should avoid bakery items, other products made out of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. For being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. As regards diabetes control it is essential to maintain fasting glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

Increase Your Changes Of Fertility With IMSI!

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO, Dip.Obst.(Ireland), FICOG
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Increase Your Changes Of Fertility With IMSI!

Of a million sperms released in one ejaculation, a single sperm manages to fertilize the egg, which grows into an embryo and then a baby. Due to various reasons, when this does not happen, it is termed as infertility and is currently on the rise.

With IVF, couples sometimes go through multiple sessions to ensure fertilization. ICSI or intracytoplasmic sperm injection improved this chance of fertilization. It is where a single sperm is used to fertilize an egg in an artificially controlled environment and then injected into the uterus where it grows further.

The next step in this technique is IMSI, where the chances of successful pregnancy are further enhanced and also promises improved quality of the embryo. IMSI, as it stands for, has “morphologically selected” which means under a highly powerful microscope, the best sperms are selected and then used to fertilize the egg. Morphology stands for shape, and the shape of the sperm is a direct indicator of the sperm quality. This not just ensures good success rate but also ensures the sperm which is used produces a high-quality embryo.

Features

  1. High success rate of fertility
  2. Reliable and efficient method of ART (assisted reproductive technology)
  3. More expensive than traditional IVF methods or ICSI
  4. Requires complex equipment, training, and set-up

Indications:

  1. Useful in couples who have failed IVF previously
  2. Male infertility with unidentifiable cause
  3. Poor sperm quality

What to expect?

Both partners are prepared both physically and mentally prior to IMSI.

Before the procedure - men:

  1. A screening is first done to decide if the sperms can be used directly
  2. In case of hereditary diseases, a donor is preferred
  3. The first technical step involves sperm collection, either directly or through a donor
  4. Sperms are collected either through masturbation or through a small incision in the testicles
  5. Sperms used could be fresh or frozen; fresh ones may be stored for later use also

Before the procedure – women:

  1. The woman is put on some ovulation therapy to ensure the release of multiple eggs, so a good one is picked. These high doses of hormones ensure multiple eggs are released.
  2. Egg release is monitored through blood and urine tests
  3. They are collected within after 36 hours of release

During the IMSI procedure:

  1. A healthy egg is chosen and placed in a glass container containing hyaluronidase
  2. Sperms are placed in a medium which will slow their movement, which enables picking a good sperm for fertilization
  3. The dual advantage of this is that in addition to a high success rate of fertilization, the quality of the embryo is also assured

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
