Patient Review Highlights
29 years old male from Lucknow asked
My facial hair are getting greyed and the hair on my scalp have been falling out in large numbers from last 5-6 months. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, depression and deficiencies of vitamin b12 and vitamin d and have been taking thyronorm 25 mg and vitamin d supplement from last 5 months (as per my endocrinologist's prescription) but it hasn't helped in addressing these issues. My doctor says this is normal with hypothyroid patients and has advised me against self medication for the same. Also, despite being hypothyroid, I don't seem to be gaining weight rapidly as is usually the case. Do you have any ideas what else might be the issue with me? As for my TSH values, I have got myself tested by 2 of the most reputable labs in Lucknow and both have indicated elevated levels so I think it's probably not a case of misdiagnosis. If possible, please advise any medication or home remedy to address these concerns.
Your dose of thyronorm viz. 25 microgram may not be sufficient and has to be increased under clinician's supervision followed by a repeat TSH after 3 months.
22 years old female from Bhopal asked
Dr. Bht confuse hu me Mene 4 month pehle thyroid TSH test krwaya tha tb vaue 0.05 ayi thi or 1 week pehle karwaya to 20.65 ayi or kal karwaya to 9.45 aayi Dr. Itni jldi value me itna difference kese aa skta hai Report me koi problem hai ya fir esa hota hai?
TSH can vary between early morning and evening values. Even in the normal range that varies among the laboratories higher normal value is 25 times the lower normal value. So please do not be bothered about these variations. Having said that it seems that you may need thyroid medication after thorough clinical evaluation by an Endocrinologist. You can meet DM Endocrinology doctor for the initial evaluation. The idea is to adjust the dose of medication that is best for you.
35 years old male from Agartala asked

The need for levo-thyroxine (thyroxine) during pregnancy is increased so please go for early tests fT4 and TSH as soon as pregnancy is detected. Kindly consult the gynaec for present non-conception. Also get T4 and TSH on present state to ensure that the present dose is sufficient.
33 years old male from Srinagar asked
Dear Doctor My cousins age is about 9 years, when he was of 5 years of age a doctor prescribed him a test for thyroid and the result was he was have thyroid and doctor prescribed him thyronorm after few months again the test was done and there was no thyroid problem it seemed that due to the negligence of thyroid test clinic the report ws not his actually, but doctor told us that he has to continue the medicine now all his life and he can not give it up. From last 4 years he is taking this medicine and day by day he is getting weaker and had developed constipation and excretes after 8-10 days. Now give him laxatives but still problem is there. 4rm last 4 years he only eats some white rice ,curd and veggies. No non veg chocolates or fried food milk etc. Pls help.
I presume that the medicine would have been started based on his abnormal thyroid tests that normalized after a few months of starting the medicine. These tests were normal because patient was taking thyroid medicine. Hence the doctor correctly advised you to continue the thyroid medicine. Right now he needs complete clinical and laboratory evaluation by an Endocrinologist DM Endocrinology ASAP. Please do so.
18 years old male from Srinagar asked
What are the effects of taking synthetic thyroxine? If it remains within the zone ,does it have bad effects?
Synthetic thyroxine is given to supplement the endogenous thyroxine and does not have any side effects. Side effects from the other components in the medicine have been reported but are practically inconsequential in clinical practice.
19 years old male from Mumbai asked
My mother has thyroid problem. Due to this her neck was swelling and have itching to gulp anything. Her thyroid report reading as follows:- Thyroid Thyronine T3= 2.48 ng/ml (0.79-1.58 ng/ml) thyroxine T4=16.0 ug/ml (4.00-11.00 ug/ml) Thyroid Stimulating hormone Tsh=0.010 uIU/ml (0.28-5.00 uIU/ml) And doctor prescribed her TAB. Thyrocab So what will we do now this treatment is ok with the recent thyroid conditions or not please help me to get a proper treatment.
Kindly get an evaluation done by a DM Endocrinology person at the earliest. Low TSH can be due to either the gland that is function more which appears to be more likely in your mothers case. However, low TSH can also be due to leakage of thyroid hormones from the gland which is caused due to thyroiditis that is self limiting condition. Since both these conditions have different treatment it is always better to find the cause for low TSH before starting thyroid medicine. This is done by performing a Nuclear scan under supervision of an Endocrinologist. If nuclear scan shows that both the lobes of thyroid are functioning more then thyrocab treatment as has been given can be started and repeat blood tests be done after 6 weeks. Hope this helps.
30 years old male from Visakhapatnam asked
My wife is 5 weeks pregnant and just found out he has thyroid levels more than 100 TSH. She took her first 100 mg Thyronorm medication starting today with empty stomach. Will there be a problem for the baby. We took an appointment. She took her first 100 mg Thyronorm medication starting today with empty stomach. Will there be a problem for the baby. We took an apppointment with Endocrinologist today evening. Will there be any complications with baby's physical or mental growth. Can thyroid values be sustained to normal by regular medication and can we expect a healthy baby? Please guide us. Regards.
For first 13 weeks of pregnancy fetus's thyroid is dependent on mother's thyroid function. It is good that you have started medication today and have also taken Endocrinologist's appointment. TSH will have to be monitored at short intervals to ensure that it is below 2.5 micro IU/ml. Continue the medication and follow Endocrinologist's instructions.
29 years old female from Delhi asked
I am suffering from hypothyroidism from 2011 n my TSH level is 12.12 and I also suffered from Alopecia since two months from October I tk 100 mg thyroxine tablet but I put on my weight presently my weight is 78 kgs pls suggest me how I loose weight and control my thyroid thank you.
Kindly get your TSH levels after taking the medication regularly in the prescribed dose for a minimum period of 3 months. If the TSH is still raised you may need to increase the dose but all this has to be under supervision of expert in thyroid disease since these are hormones and minor alteration in their dose can have impact on overall metabolism of the body. As far as weight issue is there, people with hypothyroidism loose weight at the initiation of therapy since there is water loss from beneath the skin (body swelling becomes less). This may happen for around 6 weeks. Thereafter the weight stabilizes. Any further weight loss if desired is possible only with dietary modification and exercise. Hope this helps.
43 years old male from Tirupati asked
I am 43 years my thyroid TSH is 150 last year October but again I tested this year August TSH is 117 and I started treatment of tablet 75 mg for 45 days again tested a week back TSH 15 Now what can I do.
Kindly repeat TSH only after 3 months of changing the dose and that too if you have been taking the medication regularly. If TSH has still not normalized then increase the dose of medication by 12.5 microgram and again repeat test after 3 months.

Hello ma'am /sir. Please advise I am 5thmonth 1 week (21 week) pregnant lady nd hypothyroid patient. So I am taking thyronorm 50 mcg as advised by doctor. But now also in second trimester my tsh level is 5.24.my sugar fasting is 115nd random130. Hemoglobin is 10.4.according the ultrasound my baby weight is 415gram in 21 week. Please advise everything is normal. We are enclosing report for better understanding.
You need to increase the dose of thyronorm since upper normal level of TSH during pregnancy is 2.5. Kindly do so under the supervision of the Endocrinologists. Beyond 12 weeks of pregnancy fetus's thyroid functions independent of mother's thyroid. So fetus is not likely to be harmed due to present dose that the patient is taking.

28 years old female from Hooghly asked
My wife has been suffering from leg swelling and vertigo for past few months. We have done blood test for Urea, creatinine, Sugar and TSH. All other things are normal except TSH which shows 4.9 micro IU/ml. How to recover this?

27 years old female from Bhubaneswar asked
Hii I was with thyroid with tsh 9.81 and taking thyrox-50 but after 3 month now with tsh level is 1.94 ulU/ml so my qst is 1) please tell me now is this the suitable tsh level for pregnancy? 2) do I need to continue thyrox-50 or reduce to thyrox-25?
Kindly continue the same dose of levothyroxine. DONOT REDUCE THE DOSE. The requirement of medication would increase during pregnancy. Hence repeat the test when pregnancy is detected. Keep taking the medicine during the pregnancy especially during first 13 weeks when fetuses thyroid is yet to begin functioning and its need for levothyroxine are met through the mother. Regards.
29 years old female from Jammu asked
I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism few days ago. Can you please tell me that is there any food or drinks to avoid during this medication? Or any other precaution to take.
Cauliflower, bandh gobi are known to have antithyroid substances. However, if they are consumed occasionally then they are more beneficial than harmful. Kindly take a balanced diet.
19 years old male asked
A girl age 26 years have TSH value 79. 935 which is greater than normal TSH value 4.780, and T4 value is 0.59 which is less than normal T4 0.89, What that's means and what she do to make her TSH normal? Is she have to increase eating iodine chloride salt in food? Please suggest what to do.
These values of TSH and T4 imply that her thyroid is functioning less than normal. Therefore she has to be given thyroid hormone medication from outside to bring TSH within normal limits and to bring relief to her symptoms if any. Please note that increasing iodine or chloride will not help in her case. She will have to take thyroid medication for sure. Hope this helps.
