My sister's tsh is 15.940
She do not have any child Her age is 29
She want to know about thyroid and fertility.
Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the underlying causes of hypothyroidism — such as certain autoimmune or pituitary disorders — may impair fertility.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then only option is to take thyroxine tablets in adequate dosage and control TSH levels with in the recommended range of 3 to 4 mU/L. Plus treatment has to be for lifetime. Plus for a young girl like you it is absolutely essential to control it, as uncontrolled hypothyroidism affects menstrual cycles, can lead to infertility, overweight and many more problems. Thanks.

Sir I m thyroid patient. T2.342. T3.22. And t4.0. 01. I m taking thyroid medicine regularly. Can you tell me permanent remedy of my dease. Pls give me advice.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Balmukund, Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, hence the treatment is replacement of the hormone through oral tablets. This has to be done for life time as the hormone is needed for day to day normal functioning of our brain and metabolism. Hence this is the only option, There is no permanent cure for it. In addition one has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, radish, mustard and coffee. Plus have to consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour to make chapati and roti. No refined flour like maida. Daily exercise for 1 hour is also equally important to avoid weight gain.

Normal thyroid-stimulating hormone level during pregnancy is lower than the normal nonpregnancy level. The new recommendations for tsh levels during pregnancy are the following: first trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5 second trimester: 0.2-3.0 third trimester: 0.3-3.0. As your t4 level is normal, no treatment is needed for you regarding thyroid.

Diet and exercise are important parts of managing PCOS Avoid foods such as bread, pasta, rice, and cereal, most snack foods (such as chips, cookies, and candy), sugary drinks such as soda and juice, as insulin level in your blood goes up after you eat these foods, PCOS often have higher levels of insulin (a hormone) in their blood, and many have trouble maintaining a healthy weight. You can take: Fresh fruits or frozen/canned fruit without added sugar, or unsweetened applesauce Non–starchy fresh vegetables or frozen/canned vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, and carrots Whole grains such as whole wheat pasta, brown rice, oats, and whole wheat bread High fiber cereals such as Kashi, shredded wheat, (Look for cereals that have at least 5 grams of fiber per serving or sprinkle ½ cup of bran cereal or unprocessed bran on a low–fiber cereal to increase the fiber) Water or seltzer, flavored with fruit if desired, unsweetened iced tea High fiber baked goods made from whole wheat flour and oats Crackers and snacks with fiber such as Triscuits, Wasa, or popcorn. Also quit coffee. Start doing some workout daily, some yoga, gym, dancing, swimming etc. You will feel energetic and your cycle will also be regularized with this.

Well the complaints you have described can be related to either prostatic hypertrophy which is the most common age related problem in urination, but it gradually increases and is associated with urgency frequency and poor stream of urine which develop over a period of months. Blood in anus is most commonly due to haemorrhoids (piles) which can be/not painful or anal fissure which are very painful. If blood is in initial stool. Passage and like splash in pan it's hemorrhoids. While if it's associated with constipation, pain and only streak of blood comes then it's usually fissures. I recommend you to visit a surgeon nearby for examination.

Hi at tsh level of 6.91 milli units/ml, no treatment is advised. Hormone replacement is suggested only once tsh levels cross 10 milli units. Hypothyroidism is a condition occurring due to thyroxine hormone deficiency. This hormone is needed for brain development and normal functioning. Plus it is required for multiple metabolic functions in the body. If that is not made available, then there can be very serious consequences like myxedema. Plus in females when tsh levels are high, conceiving is not possible, fetal development is affected, brain development of fetus is affected, miscarriages occur. So please decide for your self what you want to do. In the world tody, with out taking thyroxine tablets there is no treatment for hypothyroidism.

Dear. Adolescent minds are always lazy and wandering. This happens because of their hormonal imbalance. They need constant motivation and appreciation. Parents cannot give the motivation because adolescent people do not accept such motivation. You can learn to appreciate your son even in small positive tasks. Motivation should be given by psychologists like me. You may consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. As this hormone is required daily for all the important metabolic functions in the body, and to maintain body temperature, it has to be supplemented everyday. Plus this is a condition that remains for lifetime. There is no cure. You will have to take correct amount of thyroxine (based on body weight, TSH & T4 level) everydayfor whole life. Stopping the treatment can cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms. When one is on treatment, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. Thanks.

Mr. G lybrate-user, since she has hypothyroidism, thyroxine supplementation has to continue for life time. Slightly elevated t4 is fine. Main parameter for control of hypothyroidism is tsh level. This has to be between 3 to 4 milli units / ml. When on treatment. However, during pregnancy (if hypothyroid patient wants to have a child,) recommended tsh levels are between 2 to 2.4 milli units. In such a situation there may be a need to increase the does of thyroxine at that time. Some times if tsh levels show any upward level then there may be a need to increase. There are patients taking dose up to 200 mcg per day.

lybrate-user, You must be aware about which of the vegetables to be avoided in hypothyroidism. Leaving those you can consume all others in good quantity. But vegetables hardly give any proteins, they provide vitamins and few minerals. Best source of protein would be eggs, fish, dressed chicken, if you are taking, otherwise pulses and milk. So beans are to be avoided. Thanks.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Any thyroid growth either a nodule or a cyst, it is better to consult an endocrinologist nearby. Also get a thyroid assay and report those results, that will give some idea. Further if the lesion is growing, then an Ultrasono graphy may have to be done and if needed fine needle aspiration cytology may be needed. Mostly cysts are not harmful, but a detailed investigation has to be done. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.
