Your anger outbursts and frustrations may be due to hypothyroidism itself. Now that you are taking proper dose, it will subside in due course. Keep repeating thyroid function tests 3 monthly and adjust the dose. With normal tsh level if your anger is the same, consult a psychiatrist. Many persons with hypothyroidism suffer from depression also. Both need to be treated side by side.

lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism, to be free from all the symptoms TSH level should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If hat is not achieved, then most symptoms do reappear. So please check the TSH level and if it is higher then see that it is brought to above mentioned range. That will in overcoming most symptoms. Thanks.

If left untreated, hypothyroidism can progress and cause a multitude of complications. Understanding the symptoms of hypothyroidism and getting regular screenings to ensure an early diagnosis will prevent the onset of the complications listed below. Birth Defects If you are pregnant and have an untreated thyroid disorder, your child may have a higher risk of having birth defects than babies born to healthy mothers. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disorders may have significant mental and physical development issues because thyroid hormones are vital for brain development. Fortunately, if these problems are addressed shortly after the birth, the child may experience healthy development. An abbreviated thyroid function test is part of the newborn screen. This usually includes a panel of blood tests performed on a newborn to exclude diseases. Goiter When your thyroid over exerts itself in an effort to produce an adequate amount of hormones, the excessive stimulation may cause the thyroid gland to enlarge to the point where you have a bulge in your neck. This is known as a goiter. Heart Problems Hypothyroidism—even in its mildest forms—can affect the health of your heart. An underactive thyroid can increase your risk of developing heart disease because it increases levels of" bad" cholesterol. Too much bad cholesterol can lead to atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, which can increase your risk of heart attacks and strokes. Hypothyroidism can also result in the buildup of fluid around the heart, a pericardial effusion, which may make it harder for the heart to pump blood. Infertility If thyroid hormone levels are too low, it can affect ovulation and decrease a woman's chances of conceiving. Even with proper treatment for hypothyroidism—thyroid hormone replacement therapy—there is no guarantee that the woman will be fully fertile. Mental Health Issues The symptoms of hypothyroidism can take a mental toll if left untreated. Mild hypothyroidism can cause mild forms of depression. But without treatment, the symptoms of hypothyroidism will increase. This can directly affect your mental state, and your depression may intensify as a result. Moreover, untreated hypothyroidism has been associated with a gradual decrease in mental functioning. Myxedema Myxedema is the medical term for extreme hypothyroidism—when the disorder has progressed for a long time with no treatment. Myxedema is very rare because it's highly unlikely that you wouldn't recognize the symptoms and seek treatment. This form of hypothyroidism is life threatening. Myxedema can eventually slow metabolism to the point where you would fall into a coma. If you experience symptoms of myxedema, such as extreme fatigue or cold intolerance, seek medical treatment immediately. The key to preventing the complications of hypothyroidism is to understand the disorder's symptoms and seek proper medical care. Hypothyroidism is manageable with the right treatment—it doesn't have to interfere with your everyday life.

Sabse pehle aap sote time apna head south direction me rakh k soye, secondly take 15 leaves of shyam tulsi and add 5 gram ginger and one leaf of bitter neem now make a paste of it and boil in 80 ml water and refined it and drink twice a day although your problem will be cured in 2 days but you have to drink this herbal tea for 2 months regularly without fail. At night before sleeping take warm cow ghee and put 2 drops cow ghee in your nose (both nostrils), do this regular for 3 months without fail. Cow ghee calm downs the nervous system and reaches even those part of your brain where allopathty and homeopathy fails to reach. And it has scientifically proven that it has no side effect, but make sure cow ghee is pure. Tulsi kaadha peene k 45 min bad amla juice regular peena start kare water dilute karke, it will improve her hemoglobin. Walk minimum 30 minutes in morning or evening regularly.

Carrot juice is very effective in reducing fat from your body. •Take one or two fresh carrots and peel off its outer skin. •Now put the carrots in a juice blender and extract its juice. •Drink a glass of carrot juice every day in the morning. •You can also include carrots in your daily salad mixture or eat as raw carrots or can even have it steam cooked with other vegetables every day to see a visible weight loss.

Hi I am 21 year old and I am suffering from thyroid. In this case what can I do? Because my wait also lost.

The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too without side effects. Although you may find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful and moreover you will be relieved of life long medicines and will be fully treated in 2-3 years depending upon your thyroid levels and amount of effort that you are putting in, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------so choice is yours whether to go with life long homoeopathic medicines and its side effects or homoeopathic medicines for 2-3 years without any side effects------------but we will discuss the above debate afterwards but first of all show me your blood reports depicting hyperthyroidism--------------

Mr. Lybrate-user, you seem to have hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease, where there are anti bodies produced against thyroid peroxidase enzyme. This results in destruction of thyroxine secreting cells. Resulting deficiency of thyroxine and hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets and treatment has to continue for life time. There is no option, if you do stop, then there can be reappearance of all the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
