I am a patient of hypothyroidism. My TSH in September was 7.2 and my endocrinologist started 112.5 MCG Thyronorm. After two months I felt extreme weakness, loss of appetite, loss of libido and TSH was 1.24. But I continued with 112.5 mg Thyronorm. In March this year I again had same bad symptoms and I stopped Thyronorm for month but in April my TSH was 19.2. I again started 100 mg Thyronorm on my own and in May 27 my TSH was 3.71 but I still have scary symptoms of weakness, loss of appetite, loss of libido. I would like to understand are these symptoms because of overdose or side effect of Thyronorm. Some doctors hve suggested same. My weight is 85 kg I also have some tests done 1.

The direct evidence for controlled hypothyroidism is a normal report of tsh which shows that it is within range. If the tsh is higher than the upper range then the dose will be increased and if the tsh is lower than the lower range then the dose will decreased. If the tsh is within range then you have controlled hypothyroid state and the dose will be carried on as such. Now that you are taking a dose of 100mcg and your TSH is within range - you have to just monitor yourself. Initially every 6weeks and then if the TSH remains within range then after every 3 months.

How to overcome thyroid problems because it may cause severe problems to our health because I need to know how it will get cured my girlfriend has can you please help me in overcoming?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello" thyroid problems" is rather unclear. Thyroid is the normal gland in us, it produced thyroxine hormone, essential for brain development and functioning. Plus essential for all metabolic activities of the body. There can be hypothyroidism, where deficiency of thyroxine occurs, leading to weight gain, swelling of face, legs, feet, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, menstrual irregularities, difficulty iin conception, improper fetal development, miscarriage, anxiety and depression. Similarly hyperthyroidism where there is excess of thyroid activity, leading to weight loss, rapid heart rate, protruding eyes, trembling feeling, palpitations, anxiety etc. Both these conditions are well controlled by appropriate treatment. Low iodine in water, and diet can lead to hypothyroidism. That is why iodinated salt has to be used. Still of late cases of hypothyroidism have increased a lot. Another disease is hashimoto's thyroiditis, which also causes hypothyroidism. These can be well controlled, but there is no cure. In case of hyperthyroidism some times thyroid gland is removed, then hypothyroidism develops. In any case treatment usually for lifetime.

Thyroid medicine

MD - Medicine, MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Gurgaon
Thyroid medicine

Many patients suffering from primary hypothyroidism ask whether taking long-term levothyroxine will have adverse side effects. Well, levothyroxine just replaces the deficiency of thyroid hormone in your body, it does the functions which thyroid hormone would have done in your body if you did not have a thyroid hormone deficiency. So the question of side effects doesn't arise, as its just a replacement of what your body is deficient in. However, a dose of levothyroxine needs to be titrated before maintaining TSH within normal limits. After initiation of thyroxine, TSH is rechecked in 4-6 weeks and dose adjusted. once TSH COMES IN NORMAL RANGE , thereafter it is checked on an annual basis and dose altered if needed. PLEASE DO NOT STOP , INCREASE OR DECREASE LEVOTHYROXIN without asking your doctor.

Please note that it will take sufficient time and management to heal completely. As of now take apple cider vinegar which will help relieve acute pain. You can also add honey to the remedy to boost the body’s anti-inflammatory response. 1. Mix one teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons.

The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0. 5-1. 0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Reply back for private consultation for diet therapy.

Mr Barun Kumar, Please tell me are you on any anti diabetic drugs, if yes what are those and their dosage? The ayurvedic product mentioned is supposed to be for helping liver activity. It has no relation to diabetes control or insulin activity. If you no liver related issues then you may stop that. But it is important to take proper medications for controlling blood sugar.

How to Cope Up With Infertility?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Internship, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
The inability to conceive is a painful process among married couples and to deal with the problem is indeed a serious matter. According to reports, one in seven couple in India has fertility problems and sometimes the causes remain unknown. It is said around 10 percent of world’s population is struggling with some form of infertility. The number of people suffering from infertility is growing in India with each passing day, as per latest reports.
Infertility is defined when a couple is unable to conceive after six months to one year of trying despite having unprotected sexual intercourse frequently. There are various factors that contribute infertility. The latest research states, of every 100 couples reporting to fertility clinics, 40% are cases of male infertility, 50% are of women, and the remaining 10% of both partners being infertile. According to doctors, stress and infertility are co-related terms. Here are some of the points that will give you an idea how to find out the problems related with infertility.
Stress
Many couples become stressful after diagnosed with infertility. Women are more stressed than men. women of 32, working with an MNC, had experienced miscarriage due to stress. She could not get pregnant even after going through IVF treatment. Couples who are trying to get pregnant have additional stress.

Sleep disorder
Several studies indicate people who work in night shifts are affected more with infertility as compared to men working in day shifts. Their biological clock is poorly disturbed. These people usually sleep during the day. They damage their health further with smoking, caffeine and other drinks which they take during working hours in order to keep themselves awake. Stress at work, sitting for long hours, also contribute reduction in low sperm count.
Factors contributing to stress which causes infertility may also include marital disturbance, job or business stress, financial losses, personal injury or illness, death of a close family member and late marriage.

Dear Lybrate user, Depending on the severity of the disease development, one of the primary methods of treating this disease is to change some lifestyle and food habits. Before making any changes, however, it is important that you speak with your doctor about your concerns and plans. Following are few guidelines that will help you out 1. Avoid Salty Foods At All Costs. Salt naturally enhances the thirst that someone has. It creates an instant sensation of being thirsty that will cause more fluids to be consumed then are actually necessary. Any foods with added sodium should be instantly off-limits. This means eliminating fast foods, salted snacks like peanuts and pretzels, and certain grocery items, like soy sauce. 2. Stop Using Caffeinated Products Whenever Possible. Some diuretics are effectively used to treat diabetes insipidus, but caffeine is not one of them. When following this diet plan, it is important to remove most caffeine sources from the diet immediately. Caffeine will cause the kidneys to extract more water from the body. Look for caffeine in these specific items. 3. Processed Foods Must Be Avoided At All Costs. Processed food might be cheaper than fresh food, but it also contains a number of preservatives that can worsen the signs and symptoms of diabetes insipidus. This would include processed cheeses, meats, breads, and boxed foods. The primary issue here is that many processed foods contain high levels of sodium to help preserve them. 4. Reduce The Amount Of Protein That Is Being Consumed. Proteins will also help to encourage the body to create more urine, which is why limiting them is a good idea. Fish, eggs, and even poultry should all be avoided in excess amounts. Even legumes and nuts that are protein-rich should be avoided. You’ll still need to consume protein in your diet to stay healthy, but keep it to recommended levels and avoid excess consumption to promote better health. 5. Water-Based Foods May Be Beneficial. Because the fluids of the body need to be continually replaced. Foods that are rich in water may be recommended as a way to avoid drinking more fluids. Melons, fruits, and certain vegetables all have high water content in them with the vitamins and minerals the body needs. ALL THE VERY BEST.

I am 43 year old male, I am suffering diabetics since last 23 year. What kinds of physical exercises suitable for me.
The effectiveness of Ayurvedic medicine in treating diabetes is well documented. The efficacy of herbs widely recommended in Ayurvedic texts for normalizing the blood sugar level has been validated in several clinical trials. In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhu meha. Owing to the adverse effect of high blood sugar on nearly every vital organ of the body, diabetes is referred to as ?maharoga? or the major disease in Ayurveda.Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes contain herbs that help to lower the blood sugar level by regulating metabolism of carbohydrates, regulating sugar absorption, stimulating insulin secretion and improving sensitivity to the hormone insulin. Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar) Gymnema sylvestre is an effective hypoglycemic component in Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes. The common name of the herb is Gurmar, which means the sugar crusher. The efficacy of Gymnema sylvestre leaves in reducing the blood sugar level has been demonstrated in experimental and clinical studies. Treatment with the herb helps to lower the fasting blood sugar level. By assisting regeneration of the residual pancreatic beta cells, it reduces dependence on insulin medications. Coccinia Indica Coccinia indica is a powerful anti-diabetic agent. By regulating breakdown of starch, it helps to prevent sudden surge of blood sugar after consuming carbohydrates. It could also protect the vital organs from the adverse effect of high blood sugar level.
