There seems mismatch between calorie intake and expenditure. See quality of food it should be low calorie, low fat and high fiber. Take lots of salad regularly.

YES thyroid can affect pregnancy after marriage. HYPOTHYROIDISM:--- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consut doctor on time.

Jayashriji, Ideally when you are on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dosage of thyroxine then TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, then most of the symptoms are well in control. If the TSH levels go up, then the symptoms invariably reappear. Changing the dosage on your own is not good. It is better to take your doctor's opinion. Further there is no mention of current TSH level to give any opinion.Thanks

My TSH Level is 8.16 please suggest am worried and stressed please help I don't wana be on medicine for a lifetime.
lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus essential for multiple metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, it has to be made available every day, through supplement. Hence the treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. If one does not take treatment then consequences can be very serious. Thanks.

My TSH levels are 9.99 uIU/ml. So do I have hyperthyroid or hypothyroid please suggest.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
The TSHlevel in your blood reveals how much T4 your pituitary gland is asking your thyroid gland to make. If your TSH levels are abnormally high, it could mean you have an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism. Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. This means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The Homeopathic thyroid treatment medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions.

Mr Sudip Shome, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details. Her hemoglobin is marginally low. This can be built up by taking healthy diet like green leafy vegetables, fruits and dates (4 to 5 a day). Plus if she takes non - vegetarian food, then oragan meats. In addition she can take some Iron supplements. As regards her thyroid hormone levels, all the hormones are with in the normal range. There is no worry at all. Even for pregnancy later. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. It looks like there is no problem in your brain if your mri scan is normal. However many people continue to have symptoms of vertigo due to problems in the inner ear. The inner ear contains the vestibular system which participates in maintaining balance and gait. There are tiny hair cells in the ear which are surrounded by fluid. Changes in the characteristics of these hair cells and fluid might give rise to chronic vertigo. Chronic ear infection is also to be tested. Please consult an ent specialist and get test done for vertigo and nystagmus. Hope your blood investigations are normal. Regards,
