Hi. I am 31 years female. Have hypothyroid from past 10 years. Recently I have not got my periods and checked my tsh level. Its is 0.9.So I reduced the dose from 100 mcg every day to 5 days 100 mcg and 2 days 75 mcg. I used regestrone tablet twice daily for periods. I got my periods but the bleeding is very light and it has been 9th day of my period and still I am having brown colour light discharge. Can I use styptovit E 500 mg tablet morning and evening for 1 day to stop brown discharge?

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 220 mU/L is too high, suggesting there is a severe deficiency of thyroxine It needs immediate treatment with levothyroxine. Dose depends upon your height, body weight, TSH & T4 levels plus age. If you are keen to get treated please come back in a private conversation (paid consultation) with above mentioned details, then I will be able to guide and also prescribe the needed drugs. In this communication we are not allowed to prescribe any drugs. Or contact a local Endocrinologist at the earliest. Thanks.

Kindly get x-ray both foot ap and lateral view send the scan copy of x-ray to me, as per history it is not related to thyroid, or uric acid. It is most likely---spur of calcanium--advised x-ray both calcanium (heal) review after x-ray.

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. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

I am having hypothyroidism since last 5 years. I become very angry when in the morning the first thing I have to eat is medicine for thyroid. My day starts with thyroid medicine and it annoys me alot. I have consulted several thyroid specialist but none of them told me whether my thyroid can be cured or not. Whenever I ask them they say I have to take this medicine lifetime. Is it true? Do I have to take thyroid medicine lifetime?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disease. When thyroid gland either does not produce enough or produces nil hormone, this condition arises. Thyroxine is an essential hormone for majority of metabolic activities in the body. It helps maintain body temperature, activates and maintains a lot of metabolic activities and is essential for brain function. Therefore, if your gland is not producing it, then it has to be supplemented every day for LIFE TIME> There is no cure. Fortunately it is a very simple uncomplicated condition provided one takes the necessary amount of Levothyroxine daily and maintains TSH around 3 to 4 mU/L. The reason tablet has to be taken on empty stomach early morning is the quantity of hormone is in micrograms, very tiny quantity. To get it absorbed, stomach has to be empty, plus nothing else should be taken for over 1 hour. Otherwise, its benefits may not be felt. Please understand this condition will remain with you, so it is necessary to accept that as a part of day's routine and continue other activities. Getting annoyed is not going to change anything except making you uncomfortable and keep disturbed. Another important aspect, if a lady wants to have pregnancy, then keeping TSH under strict control (<2mU/L) is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, there can be serious issues. I hope you understand the situation. If you have any doubts please do write back. Take care. Wishing you good health. Thanks.
