I am 31 old male and I am a thyroid patient, I used thyronorm 100 mg. Tab. Daily in empty stomach and take breakfast after half an hour. Recently I checked TSH and report is 8.22, where normal range is 4.92. So please suggest me how can I do in this situation and how to control it by medicine and diet chart.

Mr. Lybrate-user, when on treatment with thyroxine, you should aim at getting tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then only good control is achieved and all symptoms are in check. Tsh 8.22 milli units/l means present dose is not enough. It needs an increase. Initially itself dose should have been a bit more than what you have been advised. Diet does not help in reducing tsh. I am sure you are already avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and items made of that. Plus you will have to continue exercising daily for 1 hour. Thanks for the question.

Such cough usually does not require antibiotics. Try warm water to drink during cough. For developing immunity give him zinc syrup and Vitamin A 60,000 units daily for a week.

Best prevention is taking an influenza vaccine. This will prevent any clod like symptoms. Also wear warm clothes and take warm food and liquids. Take plenty of citrus fruits like oranges and lemon juice which is a source of vitamin c and is useful to prevent influenza.

I am taking Thyroxine sodium 100 mcg 1 tablet daily for thyroid, no tested again Which results: Total triiodothyronine T3: 1.17 Total thyroxine :10.50 Thyroid Stimulating hormones: 6.57 (0.35-5.50) So my question is :should I continue the same dose or increase or decrease my dose, please reply. Thanks in advance.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please let me know the age of the patient plus are there any symptoms present related to hypothyroidism? Unless those details are known, it is difficult to say whether dose needs to be increased. Usually when on treatment TSh should be maintained around 3 to4 mU/L, particularly in adults. In older people a slightly higher level of TSH does not really matter. In fact it offers certain protection. So please answer my questions. Thanks.

I have pain in my throat since three months and I am a thyroid patient what is the cause of this pain.
Along with thyroid you may be having chronoic allergic pharyngitis or bronchitis. Do warm saline gargle regularly two to three times daily have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby incresing your body autoimmunity which prevents infection including viral infection.

I have also gas problem. Please advice me what medicine I will take and any restrictions in my diet. I am 42 year old from Bhubaneswar. I was 65 kg in jan 17, now I am 56 kg.

Thanks for the query. Because of untreated hyperthyroidism you have lost weight. Therefore, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. There's no dietary restriction. But treatment has to be started. You will need anti - thyroid drug like Carbimazole. Thanks.

If you have hypothyroidism then only option is to take thyroxine tablets regularly for whole life. This is essential because it is a deficiency disorder, where our thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine. This hormone is needed for day to day functioning of brain, involved in every single metabolic reaction in the body. If not well treated it can lead to very serious consequences. Please understand this condition can only be treated by thyroxine replacement. Other practices of medicine do not have any medication for this. Plus you will have to observe dietary restrictions and do regular exercise to avoid weight gain. Treatment is for lifetime. Thanks.

Eat small frequent meals through out the day. Avoid raw foods at night. There are many natural foods that help in thyroid. Include high intensity exercises along with yoga. Your protein intake needs to be increased. For a customised diet plan with results you can consult with me online.

for pain you can take tab. dolo sos. You can take 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. 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. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.
