Earlier tsh was at 1.1 and was taking throxin 125. Due to some symptoms my physician reduced dose to 100. Now after 6 weeks I have checked my tsh and that was 4.35. Now a days I am having burning sensation in feet and tingling sensation in face and eyes and slight pain in left temple of head. Feeling tremors when wake from sleep.

Tsh 1.1 was within range for this test and reduction of dose was advised for reasons but known to your doctor. After 6 weeks it is still within range. Your symptoms are not thyroid related. Seems you are stressed due to some reason and need to relax.

How can I control lifestyle diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol & diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, as you have stated these are called" lifestyle" diseases, meaning if we adapt a more positive and healthy lifestyle, these can be prevented. A healthy lifestyle means: exercising regularly, (everyday of the week, at least 1 hour), maintaining near normal weight, maintaining a bmi of 23 kgs/m2, refraining from alcohol, smoking, high fat foods, bakery items, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks, red meat, egg yolk etc. Also controlling excess salt intake. This kind of lifestyle is helpful in keeping those conditions mentioned by you.

Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant

Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant
Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant

About 85% of couples get pregnant within one year, but 1 in 7 couples take longer than a year to get pregnant. The good news is that you can improve your fertility in 7 simple steps in less than 4 weeks:
1. Control Your Weight
2. Timing of Intercourse
3. Improve HIS health
4. Test Your Fertility
5. Eat Healthy
6. Reduce Stress
7. Acupuncture

1. Control Your Weight

Being under or overweight decreases your fertility, and maintaining an optimal weight improves your fertility. The best way to find out whether you weigh too much or not is to calculate your body mass index, the BMI.
Losing some pounds is cheaper than expensive fertility treatments , PLUS with a betterw eight you decrease major pregnancy complications and significantly improve your chances having a healthy baby. So why not try it first?

2. SEX:

Timing of Intercourse in Relation to Ovulation
First of all do you know your fertile days? Do you ovulate? Do you hav e a regular menstrual cycle?
Your fertile days are the 5-6 days leading up to ovulation and the day of ovulation. Many couples don’t seem to realize that you need to make love regularly to improve your fertility. That means making love regularly throughout the menstrual cycles and more frequently, probably every 24-48 hours during your fertile days.
The egg can only be fertilized for about 24 hours after ovulation but sperm can live in the lower portion of a woman's reproductive tract up to five days. You can potentially increase your chances of conceiving by making love during the 2-3 days prior to ovulation.
Finding out when you ovulate is the key:
Create your own Fertility and Ovulation Calendar
Chart your basal body temperature (BBT)
Chart your fertility signs like symptoms and cervical mucus:
Use Ovulation predictor kits (OPKs)

3. Improve HIS Health and Get Him Tested

It takes two to get pregnant. Over 50% of infertile couples have a male issues. Which means that if he doesn't have enough sperms or his sperms are not healthy enough then your chances getting pregnant significantly decline. Do a sperm count and find out if his sperms are healthy and if he has enough of them. Follow these ten tips to improve his sperm count.
Get him checked for varicocele
Remove all toxins from his diet
Add a vitamin and herbal supplement to his diet
Make him lose weight if he is overweight
Keep the testes cool

4. Test Your Fertility at Home

There are several easy ways to quickly assess major aspects of your fertility at home.
Do a Basal Body Temperature Fertility Chart
Check your LH levels
Measure his sperms
Check your vaginal pH

5. Stay Away From Bad Stuff and Eat A Healthy Diet

Alcohol and smoking decrease fertility, make it less likely to get pregnant and increase pregnancy complications once you get pregnant.
Stop smoking. It is common knowledge that smoking is bad for your health, but studies have also shown that women who smoke are less fertile than those who do not. Also, women whose mothers smoked during their pregnancies are less likely to conceive.
Reduce alcohol intake. Drinking alcohol, even in moderation, can decrease fertility. The results of once study show a greater than 50% reduction in the probability of conception when the participants consumed alcohol.
You are what you eat and many doctors now believe a healthy diet PLUS supplements like folic acid can improve your fertility.
So what should you eat?
More monounsaturated fats (like olive oil) and less trans fats (like the kind found in many baked goods or fast foods).
Increase intake of vegetable protein (like soy), while reducing animal protein (like red meat).
More high fiber, low-glycemic foods — like whole grains, vegetables, and some fruits, while reducing the intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars.
Consume moderate amounts of high-fat dairy products — like ice cream, whole milk, and cheese.
No more caffeine. Studies have shown that women who drink excessive amounts of caffeine have delayed conception. In one study, women who drank more than one cup of coffee per day had a 50% reduction in fertility compared to those who did not consume coffee.
Take your vitamins. Especially vitamin E. Women trying to conceive should take a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin in addition to vitamin E. When couples were given vitamin E in one study, their fertility increased significantly.
Try herbal supplements. Herbs like Vitex (Vitamins AND Vitex are in FertilAid), have been used to successfully increase fertility.
The right diet can made a difference because the majority of women experiencing ovulatory dysfunction were also suffering from undiagnosed or sub clinical PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), a condition related to insulin resistance that also affects ovulation.
Check your current prescriptions. Some medications can interfere with fertility. Consult your doctor or pharmacist to see if your current medications could be hindering your chances of conception.

6. Reduce Stress

It’s rarely healthy to live with a lot of stress and the relationship between stress and infertility is less clear. But there are several studies showing that reducing stress may improve fertility.
What can you do to reduce Stress?
Get regular massages
Take long weekends off
Listen to music
Do yoga
Read and write journals
Pamper yourself
Spend more time with your family and friend
Hold hands with your partner

7. Acupuncture

There are some studies done in women with fertility treatments which show that acupuncture can improve fertility. If after a thorough fertility work-up no specific reason for your infertility has been found, why not try acupuncture? There is little harm to use these methods and it can save you money getting pregnant.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

Hi I ve query abt thyroid & perimenopause symptoms. I am 45 years old Last year around this time only I got my thyroid test done for d first time & tsh came to 26. My doc suggested 50 power thyroxine Got retest after 6 months. Tsh came down to 8 Got another test after nxt 3 months & this time tsh came down to 4.5 Was supposed to get retest again after nxt 4 months. So this time wen I got my test done. I had taken a break of 10 days before going for d test. So my current test showed rise in tsh. Frm 4.5 (4 months back. Instead of going down it is showing rise. It is showing 14 tsh Doc. All I want to kno is. Is this rise in tsh due to d gap of 10 days that I took? My second prblm is perimenopause symptoms: *hot flushes *frequent urge to urinate *craving *headache. Etc.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, Madam, If one has hypothyroidism, then thyroxine in prescribed dose has to be taken regularly without break. If it is stopped, then TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) will increase because pituitary detects that there is low level of thyroxine and hence starts producing more of TSH. So you should not stop taking thyroxine on your own. When on treatment, to achieve good symptomatic control TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L. Otherwise most symptoms reappear. As regards hot flashes, these usually continue for some months around menopause. There is no specific treatment for that. Frequent urge to urinate is not a part of the symptoms of menopause. Please get your blood sugar checked. Thanks.

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.

Hi, raising the hemoglobin from 7.5 g/100ml to normal is a bit difficult. Many a time packed cells may have to be given, otherwise start on hematinics daily and those to be taken for over 8 plus months. Plus he should increase the intake of green leafy vegetables daily.
