28 years old female from Bikaner asked
I was suffering from hypothyroidism since last 9 months but this tym my report has come normal so should I continue taking medicine? I am also overweight I do exercise but m getting zero result what should I do as due to this I have severe ankle pain.
Your thyroid results normal because you are taking thyroid hormone if you stop taking your medicine your results will be more or less same as before. Hence please continue your medicines and get your TSH testing regularly. To reduce weight diet control you also necessary along with exercise. Your diet should be low calorie, low fat and high fibre. You should take a lot of vegetables and salad in your diet.
27 years old male from Patna asked
I am 27 years old with normal t3 and t4 but tsh is 13. I am gaining some weight for some time now. I know I am suffering from hypothyroidism. I have no medical history and I don't take any medicine. Sometimes I have high BP and since childhood I have joint pain. I have decided to go for morning walks and healthy food habits. Will it work or I need medicine for hypothyroidism. Are my tsh levels serious at this age?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that you are aware of having hypothyroidism. This a hormone (Thyroxine) deficiency disease, hence there is a need for supplementation of that hormone on daily basis for lifetime. Adapting a modified lifestyle with regular exercise and proper die etc, is good but that will not "cure" hypothyroidism or even prevent t. There is no option but take levothyroxine tablets in a specified dose daily for lifetime. Otherwise all the problems associated with hypothyroidism will be troubling for the whole life. These include weight gain, swelling of face, lower limbs, sluggish heart rate, tiredness, fatigue, dry skin & hair, hair fall, muscle and joint pains, intolerance to cold, anxiety, difficulty in speech and in concentration and many more. So my suggestion is please initiate the treatment right away. Thanks.
27 years old female from Bhilai asked
Hello Dr. .mujhe thyriod h tsh 5.8 hai weight 67 hai .aur ovary me toda swelling hai .mai last 4 month se baby plan kar rahi hu .but nai ho pa rah h .mai thyriod k liye 25 mg ki medicine le rahi hu .mujhe period regular aate h .dr ne harmony F medicine lene ko kaha h .dr kya meri problm bahut badi h jisse mujhe baby concieve nai ho payega.
Thanks for the query. It is good to know that you are looking for a baby. For that please understand that it is absolutely essential to achieve a very good control of hypothyroidism. Your TSh should be maintained around 2 mU/L, for conception to occur and even during the pregnancy too TSH has to be maintained around that, for proper development of the fetus and healthy expected out come of the pregnancy. So you will have to increase the dose of thyroxine to 50 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks. If it has come down o the level mentioned above, then it is good. If not there has to be a further increase in the dose. Simultaneously you need to exercise and take a restricted diet, so that you are able to loos at least 5 to 7 kgs of weight, before conception sets in. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

I have hashimoto thyroiditis. Total thyroidectomy 3 years ago. My tsh is 180 and stays that level. Feel awful and er does not seem to care. Im on synthroid 200 mcg. Is something I should be worried about?
Usual requirent of thyroid hormone is less than 200 micrograms for hypothyroid. And it seldom requires 300 micrograms or more, and in that situation one should look for malabsorption, drug interaction or poor compliane as the cause. Please consult an Endocrinologist.
53 years old male from Hyderabad asked
You have not mentioned whether yoiu are having hypo or hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is treated with thyroid hormone ,dose of whih is guided by TSH level in blood indefinitly. Hyperthyroidis is treated with antithyroid mediines or surgery or radioactive iodine and you have to be under supervision of a physician.

Low energy levels, weight gain, bodyache, depression, dry skin, constipation, are some of the common clinical symptoms of Hypothyroidism. Some common issues include high blood sugar, High blood cholesterol and infertility. Rarely, Thyroid problem may be due to "Hyperthyroidism" (Increased thyroid hormone levels). The symptoms in that case are quite different.
34 years old male from Kolkata asked
Sir I'm 34 years male. My recent Thyroid test shows TSH 7.55, T3-100, T4-9.1. Plus I have hair loss issue, no other major health issues like fatigue etc. Do I need to start thyroxine tablets now? I'm a bit worried as I've heard that this medicine need to be taken life long.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 7.55 mU/L, is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Usually it is not requiring any treatment. However, if a person has any troublesome symptoms related to hypothyroidism, then treatment is given. As regards taking the tablet for life time, if a person develops hypothyroidism, which means deficiency of the essential hormone thyroxine, which is needed for day to day functioning of almost all the metabolic functions of the body, so it has to be supplemented for the life. There is no option. Thanks.
30 years old female from Delhi asked
Hello doctor last 2 month pehle mera thyroid badh gaya tha aur TSH level 15 tak badh gaya tha to doctor ne meri dose 150 mcg kar di thi. But now ab mera TSH level 0.27 h to ab mujhe kitni mcg tablet khani chaihiye.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH at 0.27 mU/L you have achieved a good control. With this I am sure there are no symptoms of hypothyroidism. Then it is better to continue the same dose. You may check TSH after another 8 weeks, if then it goes further down, then you may reduce the dose in consultation with your doctor. Because frequent changes will not help. Thanks.
68 years old male from Chennai asked
Thyroid function profile (free) Free T3: 2.95 pg/ml Free T4: 1.42 ng/dl TSH :0.035 uIU/mi Taking Thyronorm 75 mcg before the above Lab Test. Suggest me medication.
Mr. lybrate-user Thanks for the query. With TSH 0.035 mU/L, are you having any symptoms suggestive of hyperthyroidism? It appears the of 75 mcg per day is a bit high. It will have to be reduced by 12.5 mcg per day. Then taking that dose for over 8 weeks please do check TSH level again. To see if the dose is good enough. Thanks.

22 years old female from Delhi asked
Mere thyroid ki problem h.aur weight badh rha h pichhle kuch time SE anxiety disorder h.mujhe jldi weight loss ke liye kya krna chahiye. please tell me.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is absolutely necessary to control hypothyroidism very effectively to succeed in your efforts to loose weight. For that TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. So first check TSH levels, then if needed increase the dose of thyroxine to bring TSH to desired level. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet and exercise daily for over 1 hour. Better if you join a gym. Thanks.

Starting thyroxine is not going to help you loose much weight. Repeat TSH after 3 months. Get your fasting blood glucose hba1c lipid profile blood pressure checked. Exercise daily for 1 hour. Follow healthy eating habits.
30 years old female from Delhi asked
Hi, I am a 30 years old female and I have hypothyroidism since two years. My TSH was 13 a month back. After which I got it checked to an Endocrinologist, I am currently taking Thyronorm 100 mcg and 125 mcg alternatively. I work in night shifts from 7 pm- 4 am in the morning. I do yoga daily from 5 am - 6 am followed by an hour of swimming. I am still not able to reduce my weight. Please suggest.
Thanks for the query. When on treatment for hypothyroidism, ideally TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Even efforts to reduce weight will succeed if TSH is in the above range. So please check that first. Then look at your dietary intake. Total caloric intake should be based on your ideal body weight (Height in Cms - 100 = kgs). Plus since weight reduction is desired, then reduce another 500 calories from that. Plus continue doing all the workouts as of now. Thanks.
