You can take 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. 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,

Sir my age is 23. Height 6 ft. Weight 76 kg. Sir I had habit of masturbating 5 times daily since 5 years during phone sex by rubbing penis against bed for hours. I was enjoying my masturbating habit. I had started it at the age of 17. But sir during mid half of 22 .8 month ago .one day I felt severe pain in the left half head back side .a shooting pain. From.there it goes to whole head. I was in a severe pain those days at single point on half head. I went to an neurologist .he ordered CT scan of head. It was shown some sinus in my head. Doctor says it is normal. At that time my bp was 150/100. That time I left habit of masturbation but used to have night fall daily basis. After 2 month when I was doing yoga .one day I had frequent urination upto 30 times and weight loss on third day. Sugar was tested it was normal. So I had urinary tract infection. I had taken medicine for it but it was reoccurring. And also I started feeling bones and muscle pain in whole body. And numbness and tingling im whole body along with light abdominal pain. So I had my uric acid test .it was normal. But my urgency to pass urine was more frequent and dark colored reddish urine. again I had urine culture it was normal. But infection was with 4-5 pus cell. So I had ultrasound of abdomen and prostate .it came mild prostatomegaly 22. 6 cc and right renal cortical cyst. I had MRI plain of abdomen. It also came with right renal cortical cyst. But my problems of numbness and tingling in whole body increasing day by day. I am having excessive hair growth on whole body even on eyebrows and head but retarded growth on moustache. I am having more bone and muscle pain including mouth along with inflammation in body. Chest pain. Chest and abdomen enlargement too. Much.abdomen is looking too bad. Since 8 month my appetite is reduced. When I was well I had 7 chappati at a time. Now from 8 month I am having 2 chappati at time. But still I am having chest and abdomen enlargement. Along with hair growth on whole body .with new hair growth. Sir I had my total blood testosterone it came 2.21 ng/ml. 2 month ago and cortisol 234ng/ml. FSH was 6.28 miu/ml. So in mid I took glginseng and shilajeet and daily intake of 1 kg mangoes. After 2 month I again had my test testosterone came 3.73ng/ml. Cortisol 153ng/ml. Prolactin 11.28 ng/ml.

I am a known case of thyroiditis detected in the year 2015 but wasn't on any medication as TSH Profile was WNL, though I took thyrovol supplement for 3 months when my TSH was fluctuating sometimes high and sometimes low. I had spontaneous conception. During pregnancy I had low TSH and was started on tab eltroxin 50. My post pregnancy TSH aftr 2 months of delivery was 0.01 and after 4 months it has com to 0.18 (2_4. 2) with T3 4.09 (0.6-1.7) and T4 0.77 (0.34-4.25) though I had continued tab eltroxin 25 till now. What should I do now as my TSH is still below normal range. M having severe hair fall, lack of appetite, and irritability, I feel sleepless sometimes.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You are being treated with thyroxine means the condition is hypothyroidism. When a person is on treatment for that with levothyroxine TSH should be maintained <3 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. But 0.18 mU/L is bit too low. So you need to reduce the dose to 12.5 mcg per day. Then check TSH again after 6 weeks, to see if desired level is achieved. Thanks.

It is not related to thyroid. Atleast for 2 to 3 years you have to take if you are getting relief with medicines. Hope that by that time we might be able to solve your problem with proper medical insight for fibromyalgia.

Age of my Wife is 24 years. We were married 8 months back. Shes not pregnant. Kindly suggest whether there are any food habits which could help me to reduce the thyroid level?

Your wife's thyroid report suggests she has subclinical hypothyroidism, and since you r recently married and not conceived yet I suppose, she needs to be started on treatment if planning conceiving if she has family history of thyroid disease and if menstrual cycles r normal x any neck swelling but I suggest get her thyroid profile repeated and in addition do anti tpo antibody levels to see if she has autoimmune thyroid disease, anyway you don't need to worry she can be managed with thyroid medications, kindly report back after rpt investigations or see an endocrinologist, whatever is feasible to you.

The thyroid test results show that she has high tsh levels, it is subclinical hypothyroidism. Presently there is no problem unless she has any symptoms. But she should check her thyroid levels once in 6 months. Also avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Exercise daily to avoid weight gain.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Problems related to thyroid gland which can be mostly hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism (there are others), are not curable. Treatment has to be continued for lifetime. If thyroid activity is affected then there is affection to menstrual cycle and ovulation. This affects fertility. Thanks.

In general, People who does not have Hypothyroid also will find changes during pregnancy, then it is functional&will subside after delivery, But need to take Supplement during pregnancy as per report&Dosage. Whereas in your case, already as you r a Hypothyroid pt, your Tsh levels would obviously show the changes.&the rt now dosage you required should b as per your concern Gynaecologist or Endocrinologist. But, Its Harmless. Try to maibtain Mental peace/Balance by doing meditation, Taking proper nutritious diet without neglecting/Do not ggo for junk food&Take plenty if water/Fruits&With regular walking exercises.(Not brisk). Get regular followups&Suggestions by your concern Dr. Only.
