Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Yes, adam's apple reduction requires careful thinning of the voice box cartilages. It is not commonly done in most males but is extremely commonly done in sex change (gender reassignment) surgery. You may want to consult a surgeon who specializes in these procedures.

Thyroid hormone is needed during organogenesis and plays vital role in IQ and brain development. It is advisable to keep TSH below 2.5 before and through out pregnancy for optimal brain development of baby. You may require to increase Thyroxine dose.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Weight is very dependent not only on metabolism but genetics as well. Just taking supplements will not help if your diet is not good. Also even if you are diagnosed to be having hyperthyroidism, your diet is plays a very important role in maintaining health. So start by improving your diet first. Gaining weight requires you to eat more calories than you burn. Although fried or sugary foods are calorie dense, eating them exclusively won’t provide enough nutrition to keep you energetic and healthy. Eating several meals and snacks throughout the day and including nutritious, calorie-dense food will help you gain weight healthfully. Weight gain depends primarily on your genetics, age, weight and activity level. To gain weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. If you’re not used to eating large quantities of food at one time, you may find it difficult to fit all of your calories into three meals per day. Eating nutritious, calorie-dense foods every two to three hours will help you get your calories in without making you overly full and sluggish. If you tend to forget to eat or are always on the go, bring calorie-dense snacks such as eggs, mixed nuts, fruits and dairy. Nutritious, calorie-dense foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, which promote good health and energy. Adding ghee and cream to foods adds additional calories for very little extra physical bulk. Fruit juice, masala milk provides crucial nutrients. Meal-replacement shakes and protein powder sound like good options but also remember that unless your diet is not planned sadly they won't help.

I am having hypothyroid, can I eat fruits and veggies rich in protein for maintaining my weight?
lybrate-user, You must be aware about which of the vegetables to be avoided in hypothyroidism. Leaving those you can consume all others in good quantity. But vegetables hardly give any proteins, they provide vitamins and few minerals. Best source of protein would be eggs, fish, dressed chicken, if you are taking, otherwise pulses and milk. So beans are to be avoided. Thanks.

If your tsh level has come to normal (between 3 to 4 milli units/l), it means current dose of thyroxine is really adequate. Do not stop or reduce it. In addition if you want to take any other medication, that is fine. Thanks for the question.

When on treatment for hypothyroidism, to be free from from all symptoms TSH levels should be between 3 to4 mU/L. Having higher levels of TSH will make most symptoms reappear. Repeatedly changing the dose of thyroxine is not necessary. Since 25 mcg is not giving adequate control and 50 mcg is bringing TSH level very low, it is better to take 37.5 mcg per day and check TSH level after 6 weeks. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, looking at the details mentioned I do not see any problem at all. A minor excess in cholesterol, tsh level is with in normal limits. There is no hypothyroidism. \dr with age there may be a few symptoms unconnected to any specific condition. I really do not see any treatable condition. But one thing is that you are over weight, as your ideal body weight should be 58 kgs. So if you exercise (brisk walking) for 1 hour a day, every thing should be fine.

I am 16 years old. I am suffering from cold for 2 days. What should I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

First time I checked TSH. And the result is 7.61, what I should to do take a medicine or what. And I am 36 years old and have a baby boy 6 yrs. And also plan to next baby in after 4-5 months. So please suggest what I should to do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi, in a normal person tsh 7.61 milli units is not considered as treatable level. Because it is called as subclinical hypothyroidism. If this accompanied by low t4 and /or there any specific symptoms suggesting hypothyroidism then treatment is recommended. Otherwise thyroxine is given only when tsh crosses 10 milli units/ml. However, if pregnancy is desired then it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2.5 milli units before conception and during 1st trimester, during second 0.3 to 3 milli units and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. This is essential for proper conception, development of fetus and successful outcome of pregnancy.
