hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder, since thyroxine is needed every day for normal functioning of brain and a variety of metabolic activities, it has to be supplemented every day for the lifetime. Hence only option is to take thyroxine for life. You may hate taking medicine but there is no alternative.

Mr Gopinathan, HbA1c% of 6.1 is a prediabetic condition. You need to be careful. To prevent diabetes exercise regularly, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Take a restricted diet giving calories based on ideal body weight and level of exercise. This should help.

Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar level pp 200 mg, means you have diabetes, so there is a need to start treatment with oral anti diabetic drug. Plus you also have to control dietary intake and exercise daily for 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat milk products. Should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Strive to maintain fasting sugar nearer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. This will help in preventing diabetes related long term complications.

Regular follow ups, keep her happy as much as possible. In today's world of entertainment, there are umpteen tv channels and sources of laughter. Laughter is the best medicine. Or helps a person destress. Other things that can be tried are karela juice, jamun juice, methi powder, cinnamon powder avoiding sugar completely. And counselling. She will be fine. Now a days diabetes and hypertension are very common. Do let me know if I can be of any help. I understand what you are going through, as I have a similar situation. She will be fine.

What's her tsh level? if it is normal then no worries. Regarding whether fasting is required or not, there are conflicting studies. In my personal experience of more than 1000 patients, tsh level is often at a lower level when measured after meals. So, I would suggest that you check it after overnight fasting.

Thyroid During Pregnancy!

MICOG, MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Thyroid During Pregnancy!

Nothing can be more gratifying than welcoming your bundle of joy into this world. Care needs to be taken during pregnancy to ensure that the developing foetus is healthy. Many pregnant women suffer from Thyroid problems. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is an important hormone produced by the Pituitary gland. TSH regulates the production and action of the Thyroid Hormones (T3 and T4). Estrogen and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin also affects the production of the thyroid hormones. Abnormal level of thyroid hormones in the body can result in Hyperthyroidism (increased production of thyroid hormones) or Hypothyroidism (decreased production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland). These conditions, if left untreated, can prove to be fatal for the mother and the baby.

Hyperthyroidism is greatly affected by an autoimmune disease, the Graves disease. The Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI), produced during Graves disease, interferes with the production of the thyroid hormones. The TSI mimics the TSH to a great extent. This triggers the thyroid gland to produce the thyroid hormones in excess. A woman with hyperthyroidism may complain of increased heart rate, fatigue and increased blood pressure. There may be heat intolerance, tremor, sudden weight loss and Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

Untreated Hyperthyroidism can result in heart ailments, premature child birth, foetal Tachycardia, Preeclampsia (a pregnancy complication characterised by an abnormal rise in blood pressure) and miscarriage. In case of foetal and neonatal Hyperthyroidism, there is low birth weight, heart ailments, irritability and poor brain development.

Blood tests, whereby the levels of T3, T4, TSH and TSI are examined, can help in the diagnosis of Hyperthyroidism. Women with Graves disease should be extra careful. Antithyroid drugs can provide great relief. Most antithyroid drugs successfully cross the placenta and effectively regulate the production of the foetal thyroid hormone. Propylthiouracil (PTU) and Methimazole are effective anti-thyroid drugs.
Most doctors recommend Methimazole during the first trimester and PTU during the last two trimesters.

In case of Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto disease is the main wrecker in chief. This autoimmune disease results in considerable decrease in the production of thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism can also be aggravated by Thyroidectomy (surgical removal of thyroid gland). Like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism during pregnancy can result in serious health complications. There may be stillbirths, congestive heart failure, miscarriage, anaemia, poor brain development of the newborn and Preeclampsia. Symptoms like cold intolerance, muscle cramps, concentration problems, fatigue or constipation should not be taken lightly.

Blood tests (T4 and TSH) go a long way to detect Hypothyroidism. A synthetic Thyroid hormone, Thyroxine, is effectively used to treat hypothyroidism. Including iodine supplements in your diet prove to be helpful in hyperthyroidism treatment.

Thyroid problems, though serious, can be successfully treated. A little alertness during pregnancy can shield both the mother and the newborn from the harmful consequences. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi, I am 50 Years old. I have been taking 150 mg thyroid for the last two years, Now my tests show that my Ferritin Level is 1244. Please suggest me some diets (yes and no both).

Although extremely elevated ferritin levels may be associated with rheumatologic diseases, more often they are found in patients with other conditions such as malignancy or infection. In addition, extremely high ferritin levels can be found in patients with seemingly indolent disease or levels of chronic inflammation.

Hello sir

Lybrate-user, please clarify whether you want to know how to control weight gain in pregnancy or want to reduce weight even otherwise. Because during pregnancy a gain of 12 to 14 kg weight is natural. Because of uterine size increase, placenta, amniotic fluid, fetus, mothers tissues particularly breast and in general. So weight gain is inevitable and necessary. If you have hypothyroidism and it is not in complete check, then also weight increases. When fully under control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then only all symptoms are under control. Further, in pregnancy tsh levels should be still lower. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. If levels are higher than these then that can lead to improper development of fetus, miscarriages and over all bad out come of pregnancy. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.
