Tsh value of 6.3 m units/ml is high, signifies that the person has hypothyroidism. This means immediate treatment should be initiated with thyroxine tablets. Dosage has to be based on patients weight and tsh level. Regular dosing as would be advised by the doctor and regular exercising for more than 1 h and avoiding soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee, and consuming more fruits and green vegetables, using whole grain flour for making rotis and consuming onions, garlic these are other precautions to be taken.

Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. Do reply back for private consultation.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should have been on thyroxine hormone, as tsh is too high, showing severe hypothyroidism. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Do not use food made of refined flour like maida. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (80 kgs). Your bmi is 34.87 kgs showing grade 2 obesity. Most important is immediate tsh reduction. Thanks for the question.

My brother gets acute pain around his left ankle and some pain around his right ankle when he walks for about 15 minutes. The pain subsides on resting for 5-10 minutes. There is no pain when resting. Our doctor advised a blood circulation test to check if it's a case of peripheral artery disease. The test was carried out in his right leg only and blood circulation was found to be normal. Does this mean that blood circulation in his left leg would also be OK given that the test was carried only on his right leg?

You should check TSH levels periodically (once in 6 months) to see if the dosage of thyroxine tablet is adequate or needs any change.

The thyroid means a gland producing a hormone called thyroxine, which is essential for maintaining our normal metabolic activities. There are two different conditions that occur in this gland 1) hypothyroidism where thyroxine secretion is inadequate, leading to weight increase, feeling cold, sluggishness, tiredness, difficulty in speech, swelling of face and legs even neck. The gland size may become bigger etc. This is more common in women. 2) hyperthyroidism where the gland activity become more than normal, thyroxine levels go up, causing increased heart rate, weight loss, excessive sweating, eyes may appear protruding and enlarged, diarrhae, intolerance to heat, sleeping problems, skin in shin area may thicken etc.

Dear lybrate-user Going by your history it looks like you might be having an endometriotic cyst. I would suggest getting a scan done to evaluate the cyst in the ovary. Do get your husband's semen analysis. As far as your pregnancy is concerned You can proceed with taking medication for egg development and then try naturally or get an Intra uterine Insemination (IUI) based on the test results. Good luck.

I am suffering from Thyroid since last 7 months, and I am always feeling tired and because of this my weight also increasing day by day. So please suggest me what to do.
