I am 28 and 6 weeks 3 days pregnant but my baby development is very slow my TSH is 7.4 I am taking medicine for it. But still my pregnancy symptoms are developing day by day. My other medical reports are normal. My gynic said that my pregnancy is not good. Can thyroid be cured and what will happen with my baby ? I am worried.

6 weeks plus is too early to predict outcome of growth. Thyroid is low on borderline and I would not suggest medicine during early pregnancy. Be sure that baby growth will pick up within few days specially if medical reports are normal you may be given medicines for low thyroid later. Do write back after a month. Eat a low fat but light high protein diet to avoid vomiting.

Honeyji, if hypothyroidism has been diagnosed then only treatment is to continue taking thyroxine tablets as you have been advised. This treatment is for life time. Normally there is no pain involved in this condition. It is better if you meet your doctor and sort it out. But treatment has to be continued without a break. Plus also avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soya and soya containing products and coffee. Consume good deal of green vegetables, fruits, use whole grain flour for making chapatis and rotis.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult to give any answer. It will be good if you give following details: 1) Her thyroid test details like T3, T4 & TSH levels. Plus if anti - TPO antibodies test has been done. 2) What are the tests suggested, Plus what are symptoms she is complaining of. Looking at those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.

I am 29 years male and I have tsh value 8.85 which is higher than normal value (0.35-5.50). But my t3 and t4 values are normal. And there is swelling under eyes. I have taken lots of medicines as well as eye drops suggested by eye doctors. But the swelling is still there and it look like permanent under eye bags. Is there a correlation between these two symptoms? Which doctor should I contact eye doctor or skin or physician?

My TSH levels are significantly higher suggesting hyperthyroidism. Please suggest medication and also suggest if any exercise can also help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. High TSH (actual value is not mentioned, which is important to know), means you have hypothyroidism. Treatment can only be decided on seeing the actual values of T3, T3 & TSH. Plus your height and weight. Because without all those details dose of the medication can not be decided. It is better if you come in a private conversation then I will be able to prescribe the medication. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with levothyroxine for hypothyroidism, TSH should be maintained < 3 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms, including weight gain. SInce there is no mention about the TSH value, it is difficult to comment. If your efforts to reduce weight have to give results, then see that TSH is below 3 mU/L. With a BMI of 34.58 kgs /M2 you are close to being grade to obese and carrying an extra weight of 28 kgs. Thanks.

Mr Rajesh, If she has hypothyroidism then it should be controlled by taking thyroxine tablets in proper dosage and that too for life time. The dose depends on body weight and TSH level. If she wants to become pregnant, then it more important that TSH level has to be brought down to just around 2 milli units/ ml. This is the only way.

I have thyroid and overweight. Could you please guide me what I should avoid in food?

I have thyroid and overweight. Could you please guide me what I should avoid in food?
Am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps.

If your tsh level is high inspite of being on thyroxine you need to up the dose. Then recheck the tsh and t3 t4 levels in two months to see if that is the right dosage for you. Also start taking folic acid supplements. Only then you should try for a pregnancy.
