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

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist
Ask Free Question
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, causing lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland plus there are anti bodies produced by our own immune cells against thyroid peroxidase (anti tpo abs). These antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells in the gland, leading to hypothyroidism. The causes are not clear, genetic predisposition, viral infections and even taking excess iodinated salt have been thought to be the reasons. In usa this is the main cause of hypothyroidism, more common in women, the patient with ht usually have other members of the family having some or the other autoimmune disease or himself or herself may have another autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or t1 diabetes. Treatment is to give thyroxine replacement for life time. Iodine has no role in the treatment.

for deducing weight Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Looking at your condition your doctor has rightly put you on a sulfonurea (glimer). A proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. My guess is you would be around 7.2-7.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding.

I am 41 years old male. I have autoimmune thyroid disease from last 5 months. What to do?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Autoimmune thyroiditis can lead to reduced function of thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), in such case thyroxine hormone has to be given daily for lifetime. Tsh, t3, t4 should be tested every 6 weeks to adjust the dosage of thyroxine till it is stabilised. So you have to start on thyroxine tablets dose depending on weight and tsh levels.

Hello mr, if you have diabetes for many years, if it is not in proper control, peripheral nerves related problems do occur. One them could be related to snesory affection. Therefore, it essential to take precautions like not to walk bare foot, use proper foot ware, examine the feet daily to see if any injury has occurred. Please let me know if fasting and pp sugar levels and hba1c %. Also the medication being taken, based on these I may be able to guide.

Treatment for chronic autoimmune thyroiditis depends on the results of the thyroid function tests. Patients with overt hypothyroidism who have high thyroid-stimulating hormone (tsh) and low free t4 levels require treatment with levothyroxine. The dose is age dependent. Tsh levels should be monitored and the dose should be adjusted to maintain levels within the reference range. The treatment of subclinical hypothyroidism in patients with elevated tsh and normal free t4 levels is controversial. These children may enter a remission phase and may not have permanent hypothyroidism. This appears to be a minority of subjects. Can you send me the tft reports?

Hi, thanks for posting your query. Well yes you can control your sugars with exercise. But know one thing you are on quiet a high dose medication for diabetes so don't except that only with exercise you can control blood sugars and avoid taking medication. With exercise you requirement for medication comes down and still you will require some medication. Best exercise are brisk walking and jogging but since you have limitations doing it, you can try cycling or stepper exercise. Also to some extent upper body exercise like weight lifting etc.

Why ativan is being taken at 11 pm? so naturally she will get sleep around 3 am. Why so late going to bed? as that is your main concern. You have to change the daily routine. She should have dinner around 7 - 7.30 pm and take ativan tab and go to bed around 9 - 9.30 pm for the medicine to be effective. To achive this she has to stop watching tv by 8 pm and read some books or magazines or meditate and maintain general relaxed mood. To do that other family members have to cooperate to maintain the peaceful atmosphere and help her in maintaing the timings. Do not get on to the bed until bed time. As she is practicing meditation, have it in the evening also and learn and practice" bhraamari" yoga practice morning and evening which will help her to fall asleep. For all this the other family members have to cooperate in closing the tv and maintaining silence. Change will not come in a single day, but by persistance she can have good sleep.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner.
