I am suffering from hypo thyroid and taking 25 mg tablets. Is there any issue during pregnancy.

B.A.M.S, MD (Ayu.) Kayachikitsa
Ayurveda,
Thanks for contacting with your health concern 1. It is completely safe to take thyroxine during pregnancy and it poses no danger to the developing baby [you will be closely monitored] 2. TSH is the best way to tell whether you are getting enough thyroid hormone or not, during the first half of pregnancy it is measured every 4 weeks and in the second half, at least once.

Hello sir, if you are taking insulin then don't skip your meal take 3 major meal & 2-3 small meal/ snacks. In traveling time you should carry some food items like roasted chana, sprouts, salad like cucumber, salty lassi or butter milk. Avoid simple sugar / simple carbs. Take high fiber diet it will help you in constipation. Take 4-5 meal of vegetables & salad. Don't forget to take sufficient water. Do regular walk/ exercise/yoga or any other physical activity. One most important thing take sufficient amount of food after taking insulin otherwise it can cause hypoglycaemia (low sugar). So always carry some toffee/sugar or any other sweets.

From what u have sent it looks like u have prediabetes. Are u sure u taking the meds regularly? Such high BP in young age is not good for u in the long run. U may need some dose adjustment and also to find the cause of ur high BP. We need to look for the secondary causes of Hypertension since you are very young. You need a thorough evaluation - both clinical and biochemical. Kindly do it at the earliest.

I am 41 years, I checked my diabeties fasting 115mg/dl and p. P 160mg/dl, before 2 months I checked, diabeties was normal. What I will do. Please suggest.

Sir I'm talking about thyroid. Is it curable or a lifetime disease. Since last year I am suffering form it and right now I am taking 125 much thyronorm .plz answer.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder, where thyroid glland is not producing adequate quantity of thyroxine or nil. This is a very important hormone, required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus involved in multiple metabolic functions in the body. Hence, has to be made available daily through thyroxine tablets for lifetime. So it is quite obvious that the treatment has to go on for whole life. There is absolutely no option. Thanks.

No need take D_protein, give easily digestible food which should contain more greens and vegetables and dialling. If you take egg give daily 2 egg whites along with more milk and milk products. Take daily one variety of fruit on rotation. Encourage her lifestyle like walking meditation and if possible yoga. Expecting good health.

What is the cure for follicular carcinoma of thyroid after total thyroidectomy of a female of 57 years. What is the %age of prognosis and what are the precautions taken. What are the effects of no intake of Thyroxine until radioactive iodine is administered and is the iodine therapy the only remedy for it. Any suggestions in this regard are solicited. Thanks

As thyroid been removed thyroxine will continue life long. Radi iodine will continue for some time and then stop depending upon what your oncologist has prescribed. Radio iodine is to kill any residual thyroid cellsin body to decrease chances of reappearance of cancer and so os must.

I am aged 52 and I am diagnosed with hypothyroidism 14 years back. Using Eltroxin 125 mg. Some suggest it should be taken empty stomach while some other say it can be taken even after having coffee like beverages but not after breakfast. What is correct? Further I don't find much difference in the medication. I find same even if I don't use medicine for months. What is the actual consequences of hypothyroidism. Does it affect on behavior any way as some opine. I find myself normal and work strenuously. I feel Whatever tiredness or intolerance I exhibit is due to work pressure, while many others don't take that much responsibility and pain and stay cool. Irregularities and poor work environment also frustrates me. Though I will give no let up in my performance, I exhibit my frustration. Which people don't like. Is it due to hypothyroidism or genuine?

Thyroid medications should always be taken empty stomach, atleast 45 min to 1 hour before any food as it is a highly sensitive medicine. No doubts or confusion regarding this. You should preiodically monitor your TSH which should be kept in normal range. Untreated hypothyroidism can cause fluid retention in body, weakness fatigue cholesterol problems and even cardiac problems.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is difficult to predict whether sub clinical hypothyroidism will revert to normally thyroid. But most often subclinical hypothyroidism does become an overt hypothyroidism in about fem months to a year or so.
