My wife is 47 years old. She has Thyroid, acidity and high BP diseases. Her weight is 95 kgs. Suggest any green tea that helps her to lose weight or else what should be done to lose weight?

Hello, If hypothyroidism is not in control (high TSH levels, then efforts to reduce weight are not fruitful. In fact hypothyroidism leads to weight gain. So firts thing is to bring it under very good control with TSH level maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If this is achieved, then efforts to control weight through regular exercise and diet restriction will be beneficial. Taking green tea by itself will not give any benefit unless diet is controlled with calorie restriction and regular exercise. Thanks.

Hi, You can ask your mother to follow few exercises for shaping the fatty arms: -Weight lifting: You can use a 2 liter cold drink bottle or a water bottle for this exercise. If you have a pair of dumbbells at home it works out just fine. The aim is to reach out for something which weighs around one kilo. Hold that item with both your hands and lift it over your head. Your arms should be straight, as this is your starting position. Now lower the weight, by taking it behind your back. You need to reach it as low as you can. Make sure that you don’t hurt yourself. Bring up the weight above your head, again. The slower you move your arms, the more toned your arms will get. It is important to keep your upper arms close to your head and ears. Also try to practice this exercise in front of the mirror if you can, it will help you improve the style. You need to do 3 sets of 20 reps, which means you will move the item 60 items above your head. After every set you can take a rest of one minute. -Scissors: It is one of the best cardio workouts to lose weight. This exercise as mentioned in the name resembles a scissors being opened and closed. You need to begin by standing straight and lifting your arms to shoulder height, in front of you. Stretch your arms to the side and bring them back to your front, the right hand should overlap the left. This resembles an open scissors. You need to stretch them to the side again and bring them back to the front. This time your left arm should overlap your right. This is a complete rep and this exercise needs to be done in 3 sets of 10 reps every day. -Arm circles: You can hold two 600 ml water bottles in two hands while doing the arm circles. Stand with your feet placed shoulder width apart and arms extend straight to your sides, raised at shoulder height. Now, do 50 small circles with your hands by rotating them in the forward direction. Then switch to 50 small backward circles. The backward and forward arm movement tones all the muscles of the arms including the triceps, biceps, shoulders and back muscles as well.

I am a thyroid patient from 1998 and daily I am taking Thyronorm 100mcg tablets. I check periodically T3, T4, & TSH levels. But recently upon the advice of a Physician at Dilsukhnagar I am checking my TSH levels only during the past 3 years. Now my TSH come down to less than 0.01. I want to consult an Endocrinologist immediately. I want to know whether I have to see the doctor with the 3 reports or only TSH is enough.

Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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. 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,

Are you on treatment for hypothyroidism? if on treatment, and tsh levels are in control it is good. Pain on eating cold items is not necessarily a special problem of hypothyroidism. If it is really so bothersome I would suggest you to avoid taking too cold eatables. There is no special remedy to control it.

Hello doctor. I am a medico. My mother was diagnosed to be subclinical hypothyroidism TSH 5.9 and was started on eltroxin 25 mcg and calcium .omeze and rantac .diagnosed 3 weeks back and started using. 2 weeks everything went well. Suddenly one evng she went to puja and returned back with URTICARIA. AND it progressed to lip oedema on next day mrng .immediately took her to hospital. Started on prednisolone 10 mg 3 days with allegra and montelukast. 3 days fine. Urticaria decreased. On 4th day again urticaria started now it was generalised (initially on day 1 it was localised) on that day night he developed one episode of tightness throat. But no shortness of breath. Later mrng again we took to hospital. Vitals all normal. Doc said to continue allegra and montelukast .and by evng urticaria increased and consulted dermatologist and started on deflocort and allegra and montelukast .now rashes urticaria less.

Hello, It is very difficult to say which of the various drugs mentioned has been the cause of allergy. Usually Thyroxine is very well tolerated by most of the patients. However, allergic reaction can occur to any drug or a substance any time, even after continuous usage. To find out the culprit she may have to stop all medicines for a week or so, then may introduce one by one to see which one of the compound is responsible. Then that has to be eliminated for life time. Subclinical hypothyroidism is not treated with thyroxine. Only if T4 level is low, plus there are some troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism present then only treatment may be initiated. TSH above 10 mU/L warrents treatment. Thanks.

Helenji, If you are saying there is a swelling in the are of thyroid gland, then it may be associated with thyroid gland. It is better if you get a thyroid assay done, that will help in finding out whether there is any problem in your thyroid gland. Later you can post those reports and I will be able to guide.

Hi, your hormones and vitamin level are normal, but might be your work schedule is hectic. Standing a lot and less water intake can bring fatigue and muscle stress. This can be the reason. Try taking lot of water and bit of yoga daily.

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
