I am taking 50 mcg thyroxine daily .In test Tsh level is 185. Now what should be dose of thyroxine.

General Physician, Alappuzha
This is unbelievable level of TSH . and is it really 185 ? you take 150 Mg and check after a week .Normal TSH levels for the average adult range from 0.4 ‑ 4.0 mIU/L (milli-international units per liter) (3). However, many organisations agree that a reading of 2.5 or less is truly ideal, with anything 2.5 – 4.0 mIU/L considered “at risk”. For those on thyroxine, goal TSH level is between 0.5 to 2.5 mU/L

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT), is an autoimmune disorder, which causes hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism does lead to dyslipidemia. Therefore, correction hypothyroidism is the main treatment. That does correct the high cholesterol levels. There is no specific diet for either HT or hypothyroidism. What is necessary is to avoid soy beans, soy containing products as those affect thyroxine action. Plus it is necessary to avoid saturated and trans fats. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Thanks.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics, Cetificate Course In Thyroid Disorders Management (CCMTD)
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht) is an autoimmune disease with lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland, with anti bodidies agaist thyroid peroxidase enzyme (tpo abs) which destroy thyroid secreting cells, leading to deficiency of thyroxine - with resultant hypothyroidism. Thyroid gland is infiltrated with lymphocytes and may appear firm or lobulated. Anti tpo antibodies are detected in serum in patients with ht. One of the causes for ht is reported to be excessive consumption of iodine in salt. Other causes are infectious diseases may be as a trigger. Patients with ht usually have other family members also having some autoimmune disorders like t1 dm or rheumatoid arthritis, or they themselves may have some other autoimmune condition. Treatment ofr ht is giving thyroxine hormone tablets for life time. Iodine per say has no role in the treatment of this condition. In us this is the most common cause of hypothyroidism and is more common in women compared to men.

Hand tremors can be due to hyperthyroidism.

I am 29 year old female. I have thyroid problem . Taking thyronorm tablet 50 MCG. I am 153 cm height and my weight is 75 kg. I could not reduce my weight , even though attended fitness class for more than a year. Hence, my doctor suggested me zero fat a sachet for 1 month. I consumed it for 2 days during night time . Felt like shivering. Pls advise whether to consume zero fat a sachet or capsule to loose weight?

Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height, there is grade 1 obesity with 32.05 kg /m2 bmi, (normal <23 kgs). This definitely needs reduction. If hypothyroidism is under very good control with tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units/l, then efforts to reduce weight can be successful. First thing is to bring tsh levels in that range if they are not. Secondly zerofat a (orlistat) is not much beneficial. Along with dietary restriction orlistat can at most help loos about 6 kgs of weight over 1 year. Instead it is better if you stick to a diet plan that gives calories based on your ideal body weight (53 kgs x 20 cals = 1060 per day), plus doing a work out to burn a good deal of calories. Daily 1 hour of brisk walking can help in burning about 270 to 300 calories. If you can jog or run, more calories can be spent. Use more of green leafy vegetables, salad and fruits. Totally avoid junk foods, pastries, bakery items, deep fried foods, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), products containing fructose corn syrup, avoid highly processed packed products. No alcohol and smoking. Drink plenty of water and clear soups, thin butter milk. Avoid high fat milk products. Set a target of loosing half kg per week, and try and cut about 5 to 8% of current weight. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Blood in urine is generally due to urinay track infection, stone in urinay track (in kidney, ureter and urinary bladder), tumor, trauma etc. If it is not relived by drinking a lot of water than get an ultra sonography xray abdomen and urine routin and culture done. You can consult to nearest urologist.

For hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage regularly without fail for life. Plus avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, soya and soya products and coffee. Use whole grain flour breads, consume a lot of green vegetables (other than those mentioned) and exercise regularly. For you (uric acid 7.1 mg) if there is no symptom then there is no need for any medicine. All those with high uric acid are not likely to suffer with gout or any other problem. Your level is marginally high and nothing to worry about. Continue jogging.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day. .take arogyavardhini vati 1-1 tab twice a day with warm water.
