I want to ask is it necessary to take thyroid medication if my t3 and t4 are normal but tsh is raised from normal range. Kindly tell me.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
T3 and t4 may remain normal. Tsh being high indicates a signal that your thyroid gland is under stress. Especially so if your tsh is beyond 10. Free t3 and free t4 have higher significance in this regard then just total t3 and total t4. It is highly recommended that you keep on taking the medicines if you're already taking or you get tested for anti tpo to get the full picture before we start medicines.

Coronary Artery Disease - Symptoms and Causes

Coronary artery disease is the disease in which the major blood vessels (coronary arteries) that supply blood, nutrients and oxygen to your heart get damaged or disease stricken. It is mostly caused due to the coronary artery getting plagued or inflamed. The consequent reduction in blood flow to the heart causes the various symptoms of coronary artery disease like angina (chest pain), short breath etc.

Symptoms:

Here is a list of a few symptoms that help in identification of the coronary artery disease.

1. Angina - Pressure or tightness may be felt in or near the area of the chest that results in pain. It is mostly felt in the middle or left side of the chest.

2. Shortness of breath - Another symptom of coronary artery disease is short breath, fatigue and a feeling of exertion.

3. Heart attack - Complete blockage of the coronary artery results in a heart attack that is a prominent symptom of coronary artery disease. A person may feel heavy pressure in the chest, pain in the shoulder or arm, sweating etc. prior to getting a heart attack.

Causes:

Coronary artery disease occurs when damage or injury is done to the inner layer of the coronary artery. This damage causes plaque, which are deposits made of fat, cholesterol and other cellular waste materials to accumulate near the damaged area of the artery. This process is known as atherosclerosis.

The various causes that result in coronary artery damage are listed below.

- Smoking
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes
- High cholesterol
- Obesity
- High stress
- Physical inactivity

What are the advantages of doing jogging and skipping? Can it be done at anytime by anyone without considering their age and the underlying bone and muscular disorders. Is this indicative to thyroid dysfunction people? kindly explain.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, jogging and skipping both are good exercise. The advantage of doing those is one burns more calories per unit of time compared to walking. Both these are considered as high impact activity, so if any person has preexisting cardiac problem then such exercises are not advised. Age is no barrier. I am my self running 70 now, I run12 to 15 kms 2 or 3 times a week and skip quite a lot (about 1200 to 1600, in batches of 200 each time). Always one should start slow and then scale up. On doing regular exercise bones do become strong.

Iron is a mineral that makes up an important part of hemoglobin, the substance in blood that carries oxygen throughout the body. Iron also carries oxygen in muscles, helping them function properly. In addition, iron helps increase your resistance to stress and disease. The body absorbs iron more efficiently during pregnancy. Therefore it is important to consume more iron while you are pregnant to ensure that you and your baby are getting enough oxygen. Iron will also help you avoid symptoms of tiredness, weakness, irritability, and depression. How much iron should I consume during pregnancy? following a balanced diet and including foods high in iron can help ensure that you are consuming enough iron throughout your pregnancy. In addition, the following guidelines will help: 1. The u. S. Recommended daily allowance (usrda) for iron is 30 milligrams (mg) per day for pregnant and lactating (breastfeeding) women. 2. Eating at least three servings of iron-rich foods a day will help ensure that you are getting 30 mg. Of iron in your daily diet. Please refer to the chart below for a list of iron-rich foods. One of the best ways to get iron into your diet is to eat a highly fortified breakfast cereal, such as total, which has 18 mg of iron. Note that iron intake is not equal to iron absorption. Absorption of iron into the body is greatest with meat sources of iron. 3. The best sources of iron include enriched grain products; lean meat, poultry, and fish; and leafy green vegetables. Please refer to the chart below for a list of iron sources. Should I take an iron supplement? talk to your health care provider about an iron supplement. The national academy of sciences recommends that all pregnant women following a balanced diet take an iron supplement providing 30 mg. Of iron during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Your doctor might increase this dose if you become anemic. Iron deficiency anemia is a condition in which the size and number of red blood cells are reduced. This condition might result from inadequate intake of iron or from blood loss. Sources of iron meat & seafood lean beef chicken clams crab egg yolk fish lamb liver oysters pork sardines shrimp turkey veal fruits all berries apricots dried fruits including prunes, raisins and apricots grapes grapefruit oranges plums prune juice watermelon legumes dry and peas lentils soybeans breads & cereals enriched rice and pasta soft pretzel whole grain and enriched or fortified breads and cereals vegetables black-eyed peas broccoli brussels sprouts collard and turnip greens lima beans sweet potatoes spinach other foods molasses peanuts peanut butter pine nuts pumpkin or squash seeds other facts about iron vitamin c helps your body use iron. It is important to include sources of vitamin c along with foods containing iron and iron supplements. Foods high in vitamin c include orange juice, grapefruit juice, green peppers, broccoli, melon, strawberries, and cabbage. Caffeine can inhibit the absorption of iron. Try to consume iron supplements and foods high in iron at least one to three hours before or after drinking or eating foods containing caffeine. In general, caffeine is found in coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate products. Caffeine-free colas and many medicines also contain caffeine. Iron is lost in cooking some foods. To retain iron, cook foods in a minimal amount of water and for the shortest possible time. Also, cooking in cast iron pots can add up to 80 percent more iron to foods. Constipation is a common side effect of taking iron supplements. To help relieve constipation, slowly increase the fiber in your diet by including whole grain breads, cereals, fruits, and vegetables. Drinking at least eight cups of fluids daily and increasing moderate exercise (as recommended by your physician) can also help you avoid constipation.

Hello, Thanks for the query. It is necessary to maintain TSH <3 mU/L with adequate dose of levothyroxine to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism including swelling of the face. Since there is no mention about your TSH level, it is difficult to comment. Thanks.
