Sapanaji, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism only treatment is to take adequate dose of levothyroxine tablets and maintain TSH with in normal limit. Your present TSH level is good. As regards CBC, there is no real problem, you seem to have a bit less RBCs. For that you should take iron supplement tablets. Thanks.

Arhiji, Thanks for the query. To bring down TSH levels to normal it takes at least 6 weeks after starting the treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine. When on treatment TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. However, if you want to conceive, then it is essential to maintain TSH level closer to 2 mU/L. Further, during pregnancy TSH should be maintained as follows: 1st Trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/l, 2nd Trimester: 0.2 to 3.0 mU/L & 3rd Trimester: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/l. These levels should be critically adhered to. As lack of thyroxine affects fetal brain development in the first 28 days, later, fetal growth also depends on adequate Thyroxine plus the desired outcome of pregnancy. Thanks.

Can my thyroid fluctuate in 2 -3 days without any medicine or treatment? I am 28 years old married lady. Last year I had 2 miscarriages 1st in march and second one in august 2017, that time my thyroid was 5.7 for which I was having thyronorm 75 mg daily till December 2017. I recently checked my TSH on 10/1/2018 which was 27.35 after my gyne asked me to again check the TSH level on 12/1/2018 I repeated the TSH test which showed the TSH 15.30 can this be possible what are the reason behind it.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Whether TSH is 27.13 mU/L or 15.30 mU/L it is too high. Normally TSH values do not change so drastically. It takes over 4 to 6 weeks for the TSH to reduce after a regular intake of adequate dosage of Levothyroxine. Another important aspect is that if you are desirous of having a baby, then it is absolutely essential that TSH has to be maintained < 2 mU/L, to get conception and then to maintain the pregnancy and have healthy growth of the fetus and have a desired outcome. There are trimester specific values of TSH that need to be maintained. From your current situation it is clear that your hypothyroidism is not well controlled. Thanks.

Can we take whey protien in hypothyroidism for weight loss? Can a hypothyroid patient have a lean physique?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if not well controlled (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then there is a definite weight gain. Therefore, primary need is to achieve a strict TSH level control, by taking adequate amount of Levothyroxine per day. Once you are able to control hypothyroidism then it is possible to loose weight and maintain a lean body. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism - Signs Your Kid Is Suffering From It!

Hypothyroidism - Signs Your Kid Is Suffering From It!

To understand about hypothyroidism, it is essential to first understand the thyroid gland. Thyroid is an endocrine gland situated in the neck and produces the thyroid hormone. This hormone is then carried through the blood to different cells of the body. It helps the organs to function properly maintain the temperature of the body. The two thyroid hormones are Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). They regulate protein, fat, carbohydrates and vitamins in the body along with the metabolism. They are also responsible for the proper differentiation and development of cells.

Hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid or low thyroid
This is a condition where the thyroid gland is underactive and produces a low amount of the thyroid hormone. To help the thyroid gland produce the required amount of T3 and T4 hormones, the pituitary gland will make additional thyroid stimulating hormone called TSH. Due to this additional secretion of TSH, one also develops chance of thyroid gland enlargement and in some cases, it can form a goiter.

The major cause of the low level of thyroid hormones is considered to be iodine deficiency. Hence the addition of iodine to the common salt has always been considered to be a safe method to prevent goiter. There can be several other causes of hypothyroidism such as weak immune system, radiation, surgery, Hashimoto’s disease, hormonal changes etc. It can be caused due to pregnancy and is called postpartum thyroiditis.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism
Whatever be the cause of hypothyroidism, it can show the following mild symptoms:

  1. Increased sense of fatigue or tiredness
  2. Sudden increase in weight with puffiness on the face
  3. Hoarse voice
  4. Muscle weakness with aches, tenderness and stiffness
  5. Joint pain or stiffness
  6. Increased sensitivity towards cold thus causing dry skin
  7. Constipation due to slow metabolism
  8. Decreased heart rate
  9. Elevated blood cholesterol level
  10. Irregular menstrual periods
  11. Decreased concentration and depression too

However, it is important to understand that you may show no symptoms or show some mild symptoms that can be easily confused with some other condition. Hence, a proper diagnosis is a must to confirm hypothyroidism.

Diagnosis of hypothyroidism
The most common tests to determine if you have hypothyroidism are TSH Testing and T4 Testing. In case the low level of TSH is due to a defect in the pituitary gland, your doctor may request for another test called TRH. Also, Anti-thyroid Microsomal Antibodies Testing or thyroid peroxidase test (TPO) helps in identifying if the thyroid gland is damaged.

Treatment of hypothyroidism
Hormone replacement therapy is the best form of treatment available today. It involves the use of synthetic Levothyroxine (T4) or liothyronine (synthetic T3). Before these synthetic hormones were used for several years, however, prescribing thyroxine tablets is the most common mode of treatment and they are generally given for a really long period of time, although the dosage may vary. It is only in rare cases of severe decompensated hypothyroidism that one requires hospitalization.

Apart from the above treatment options, it is best advised to avoid soy products, sugary processed foods and alcohol to keep a check on hypothyroidism. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Thyroid Gland Removal Surgery - Things You Must Take Care Of!

Thyroid Gland Removal Surgery - Things You Must Take Care Of!

Have you undergone a thyroid removal surgery recently or planning to go for one, then you should know some important things that should be kept in mind. After undergoing the surgery, it is essential that you should allow your body some time to recover. Your health care provider will educate you regarding the activities and exercises that can help in recovering from the surgery faster. It is worthy of mention here that the recovery process is dependent on the extent and type of surgery you have undergone. It would generally take a longer time to recover from traditional surgery than minimally invasive procedure.

What to do right after the surgery?
In the days following the surgery, you are required to take care of the incision area. You may or not be allowed to take a bath depending on the dressing on the wound. You are likely to experience slight swelling around the scar. Even though this is normal, you should report to your doctor without further delay. The scar may start feeling hard three weeks after the surgery, and you may apply an unscented moisturizer to prevent dryness while healing.

When to start daily activities after the thyroid gland removal surgery?
You are free to resume most of the normal activities the day following the surgery. But you should wait for at least 10 days or until your doctor allows you to engage in physically strenuous activities. Your throat is likely to feel sore for a couple of days. You can also take an over-the-counter pain medicine like acetaminophen or ibuprofen for relieving soreness. In case these drugs are not offering desired relief, your doctor may prescribe you to take narcotic pain medicine. It is a common outcome of the thyroid removal surgery to develop hypothyroidism. In case this happens to you, your doctor may recommend you to take some form of levothyroxine for bringing down the hormone levels.

Is there any physical restriction after the thyroid removal surgery?
Most surgeons recommend that patients should limit all sorts of physically strenuous works after the thyroid removal surgery. This is recommended for reducing the risk of postoperative neck hematoma and breaking open of the wound closure. These limitations are temporary and brief and are generally followed by a quick transition to unrestricted activity. You are free to take part in heavy lifting or swimming or other exercises two to three weeks after the surgery.

Is it possible to lead a normal life after the thyroid removal surgery?
Once you have recovered from the effects of thyroid surgery, you can do anything you feel like. Post-surgery your thyroid levels will be monitored through regular follow-ups. If the surgery were carried out for thyroid cancer, your doctor would also check for recurrence of cancer during your visits. It is essential to stick to this schedule and report if you notice any suspicious changes or experience discomfort so that proper care can be given and you can lead a normal life. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Gestational Hypothyroidism - Know Everything About It!

During pregnancy, it is not uncommon for women to contract thyroid diseases like gestational hyperthyroidism and gestational hypothyroidism. The main problem, however, is that the symptoms of gestational hypothyroidism are very much similar to those which can be observed during a normal pregnancy. The difficulty in differentiating between the two is the sole reason why many pregnant women are caught unawares, eventually resulting in further complications after the first trimester.

If gestational thyroid diseases are left untreated, you and your baby may experience a ton of problems such as preeclampsia, low birth weight, miscarriage and pre-mature birth amongst others. Needless to say, if you already have a history of pre-existing hypothyroidism, then you will most certainly need more medical attention than is required.

Symptoms
Symptoms of gestational hypothyroidism, like high fatigue and excessive weight gain, are hardly distinguishable from those associated with a normal pregnancy. Other symptoms can also include:

  1. Severe constipation
  2. Goiter
  3. Muscle cramps
  4. Trouble sleeping
  5. Hair loss
  6. Dry skin
  7. Difficulty concentration
  8. Memory problems
  9. Anxiety
  10. Intolerance to cold temperatures

Causes
There may be a variety of causes that are responsible for the development of gestational hypothyroidism but the most common cause is usually an autoimmune disease known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which stimulates the body's immune system to attack thyroid gland cells, leading to a deficiency in the number of active thyroid cells and enzymes, and ultimately resulting in a shortage of the thyroid hormone.

Treatment
Treatment for gestational hypothyroidism is normally uncomplicated, and follows just two simple steps:-

  1. Proper diagnosis, via the use of a synthetic hormone called levothyroxine, which is very much similar to the hormone T4 produced by the thyroid.
  2. Continuous monitoring of thyroid function tests held every four to six weeks during pregnancy.
