My mom aged 50 years has high TSH levels=9.4. She has been taking THYROX-50 for sometime. Sometimes, mainly during night, she feels uneasy, she feels as if she can't breathe. Her feet get cold. We usually give her a massage of oil to her feet, cover her legs with a bedsheets and speed up the ceiling fan to its full extent. This generally calms her down. We also apply Navratna oil to her hair and give her electrolytes to drink, which makes her stable. So what exactly is happening to mom? Even the doctors she has consulted are not able to exactly identify her condition. So please suggest me some remedies.

according to tsh 9.4 give her tab. thyrox 100 mcg. and give her diet in hypothyroidism:- 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and control weight also.

I am a upsc aspirant and tends to spend an average 12-15 hours everyday with books. However somewhere I have realized that it has been detrimental as far as my health is concerned. I suffered from hypothyroidism for past 1 year however the levels are dropped down to 2 while being on medications. Apart from this, I still tend to feel a kind of fatigue, weariness, courtesy of which I even suffer inconsistent sleep cycles. There have been times when despite of sleeping for a healthy 8 hour time, I still feel tired all through. I've even gained a substantial 8.5 kgs in last 1.5 years. Kindly suggest a balanced diet alongside some multivitamin tablets, which may play a helping hand in my hitherto condition.

Hypothyroidism brings together constellation of metabolic disturbances in the body such as anemia & neuresthinia, apart from thisother features such as psychosomatic changes akin mild depression, weight gain ,low drive, fatiguability ,weariness, palpitation, pain and tiredness in body and legs, nightly cramp like pains in legs, constipation,peripheral neuropathy etc, my opinion holds that there are no dietary changes which may be of actual help, in some cases alkaline diet consisting of high omega fatty acids and other antioxidants may help, this largely comprises of walnuts ,almonds, flax seed, ample ater intake & rationing tea /coffee/ alcohal or tobacco intake, certain blood tests such as CBC, serum iron studies, LFT, pp/fasting blood sugar levels & lipids levels will give physician hint to your overall health, sometimes optimum control on TSH levels achieved through regular dosages of thyronorm or eltroxin for more than 6 months to 12 months will further alleviate some of the symptomatic irregularities which you have mentioned, thus maintain patience with sustained treatment, get test done, take dietary changes as advised and if required get in touch with a qualified doctor .hope this was useful. Good luck.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism. I am taking thyronorm 12.5 what diets I should avoid and what to prefer.
lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. As regards the diet following things should be avoided: Soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Should always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and food products made out of it. Total diet should be restricted to match the need based on ideal body weight (52 kgs) and extent of daily exercise. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user. Thyroid problems are usually seen in female seen in second to fourth decade of life. Although it can be seen in males as well, but less common. Symptoms can be due to overfucntion or under function of thyroid gland as well as because of its increase in size.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sunitaji, Do you mean to say, you have hypothyroidism? If so then only option is to start treatment with Thyroxine tablets daily. Dose will depend upon body weight and TSH levels. I am sure you are already on it. In addition you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking id ideal. Plus you have to follow instructions on dosing that is to take thyroxine tablets early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be eaten for next 2 hours.

Relax and take it easy. Social adjustments at times becomes difficult specially if you find things r not moving as per your desire or expectation. You might be having your own views on so many things which donot match with others and that is where the conflict starts. For the time being I suggest- whenever you are talking with any family members/ friend/ relative first agree to their views and later on after some time - may be hrs / days you express your opinion after keeping and analysing the others point of view. That will establish a harmonious relationship with others and you will feel like staying with them and enjoy their company.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Your thyroid needs iodine to work well, get enough from iodized table salt, fish, shrimp, and seaweeds. Thyroid needs magnesium also - spinach, lettuce, and other leafy greens are great sources of magnesium. Also cashews, almonds, and pumpkin seeds are another excellent source of magnesium.

Hi
My TSH I'd very high 9
I am taking Eltroxin 75 mg since a long time.

lybrate-user, The dose of Eltroxin may have to be increased to reduce TSH. Once TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Increased TSH or uncontrolled hypothyroidism does lead to muscle and joint pains. Pain in stomach, may be unrelated to other muscular or joint pains. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height, it is clear that you are over weight, almost having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 29.56 kgs/M2. This it self can be a major culprit for most of the problems. You have mentioned about taking thyroxine 50 mcg, but no other drug details are given. Also there is no mention about present or recent TSH value, BP reading and lipid values. Plus with recent episode as described, it is necessary for you to under go a detailed heart check up, an echo cardiogram and angiegraphy also. That will give a clear idea about what may be the cause of recent episode. Thanks.

My kids having cough problem their lungs get filled with congestion. .in that case what to do.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Zirakpur
My kids having cough problem their lungs get filled with congestion. .in that case what to do.
Most coughs and colds are caused by germs called viruses. Many different viruses can infect the nose and throat. They are passed on by coughing and sneezing the virus into the air. An average preschool and primary school child has 3-8 coughs or colds per year. Sometimes several coughs or colds occur one after the other. The common symptoms are a cough and a runny nose. The cough is often worse at night. Coughing does not damage the lungs. In addition, a child may have a raised temperature (fever), a sore throat, headache, tiredness, and be off their food. Sometimes children may be sick (vomit) after a bout of coughing. A build-up of mucus behind the eardrums may cause dulled hearing or mild earache. There is no magic cure! typically, symptoms are worse in the first 2-3 days, and then ease over the next few days as the immune system clears the virus. An irritating cough may linger for up to 2-4 weeks after other symptoms have gone. Antibiotics do not kill viruses, so are of no use for common coughs and colds. Coughs and colds often do not need any treatment. Make sure your child has enough to drink. Low body fluid (dehydration) may develop if a child has a raised temperature (fever) and does not drink much. Treatment aims to ease symptoms. Paracetamol can ease aches and pains, headaches, and fever. Ibuprofen is an alternative. Both are sold in pharmacies in liquid form for children. There are various brands - ask the pharmacist if you are unsure what is suitable. A popular treatment for a blocked nose in a baby is to put a few drops of salt water (saline) into the nose just before feeds. Some people feel that this helps to clear the nose to make feeding easier. There is little scientific evidence as to how well this works, but it may be worth a try if feeding is difficult. You can buy saline drops from pharmacies. Vapour rubs are another popular treatment. They can be applied to the chest and back (avoid application to the nostril area in small children, for safety reasons). Again, there is little scientific evidence as to how well they work. Inhaling steam can also help relieve congestion and coughing. The safest way to do this with children is to sit in the bathroom with a hot shower/hot taps running. Sucking menthol sweets can help ease sore throats in older children.

Dear user we can very well understand your concern for your mother. It could had been better had you provided us with detailed medication list and her latest blood reports so that we could had a better understanding of her condition.

Most often it's viral infection. Fever usually settles down in 3 to 4 days. Cough takes 7 to 10 days. Continue same treatment. Small children get frequent infections because of low immunity.
