Hi, the chances of conception naturally are very less in such a problem. You should immediately consult an ivf specialist because your amh value is also less which means that the ovarian reserve is low.

I am taking thyroid medicine 50 mg from 8 months. I would like to reduce it. I walk for at least half an hour daily. Usually I walk for one and a half hour in a day. Please suggest some remedy.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Hello, Dosage of thyroxine in hypothyroidism is dependent on TSH, T4 level, age, height and weight of the patient. Walking or other exercise has no influence on improving thyroid gland function. Adequate dose is necessary to bring down TSh level to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in control. Thanks.

I want to ask is it necessary to take thyroid medication if my t3 and t4 are normal but tsh is raised from normal range. Kindly tell me.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
T3 and t4 may remain normal. Tsh being high indicates a signal that your thyroid gland is under stress. Especially so if your tsh is beyond 10. Free t3 and free t4 have higher significance in this regard then just total t3 and total t4. It is highly recommended that you keep on taking the medicines if you're already taking or you get tested for anti tpo to get the full picture before we start medicines.

If you experience bleeding during stool then you need to carry on the following home-therapy:- i) pour about 50 ml of liquid betadine in a tub of lukewarm water & stir it until it is mixed. Ii) sit inside that tub of lukewarm water in a squatting position so that the betadine mixed water can come in contact with the point of bleeding. Iii) maintain this position for at least 30 minutes daily. Follow the aforesaid rules & continue the aforesaid medication for one month. If you do not feel any relief after one month of medication then you should consult me

Dear lybrate user do not depend on medicines to get sleep. To get good sleep drink a cup of milk everynight before bed. Have some stretching exercises or little walk before sleep. Apply coconut oil on soles and little massage. Keep your bowel movements regularly. Listen pleasant music.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should help your friend to start appropriate treatment for diabetes and high blood pressure. Drug treatment is essential for proper control. In addition he should exercise daily for 1 hour, take restricted diet that give exact amount of calories based on his ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and amount of daily exercise. For controlling high bp apart from drugs salt restriction is very essential. He should also be told to avoid sweets, sweetened aerated drinks, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, high fat milk products, red meat, highly processed foods and fructose corn syrup containing products. He should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 in adults and treated wid oral tablets. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.
