I am suffering from hyperthyroidism nd I m taking thyroxine sodium tab. 100 mg from 3 months. Bt its still not within the value. Nd does it have any affect on wight?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. Lybrate-user, after starting the treatment it takes 6 to 8 weeks for tsh values to show any change, if the value has not come down towards normal, then tere needs an increase in the dosage of thyroxine being taken. Further after 6 weeks again tsh value has to checked and if still not in the normal range, then dose may have to be increased again. Effect on weight will be seen only once tsh level goes down to normal and you are taking special effort to reduce weight.

Hello Dr. My mother (age - 56 ) is suffering from joints pain and muscles pain since last 2-3 months. The pain is unbearable. She can't walk without holding any support and even can't stand for sometime. Some times she becomes aggressive n speaks very harsh words bluntly. She often forgets many things she has done or spoken. She has thyroid disorder since last 15 years n she was taking a tablet (Thyroxine Sodium Tablets IP, THYROX - 25 ) regularly in the morning empty stomach and she was doing very well with this medication. Now, 3 months before when she had these types of pains we consulted our family physician where her routine checkup had being done on regular basis as directed by the physician. We got some blood tests like Haemogram report, Renal Function, Arthritis Profile, Thyroid Function Test done for it. And the results says : Hemoglobin : 11.3 gm% R.B.C. : 4.18 mill./cu. Mm. W.B.C. : 7820/cu. Mm Platelet. : 3,06,000/ cu. Mm. polymorph. : 70% Lymphocytes : 25% eosinophil. : 02% monocyte. : 03% basophil. : 00% P.C.V. : 35.1% M.C.V. : 83. 97fl M.C.H. : 27.03 pg M.C.H.C. : 32.19% R.D.W. : 14.9% E.S.R. (Automated ) After one hour : 90 mm Serum Creatinine. : 0.99 mg/dl Uric acid : 6.41 mg% RA Test (Quantitative ) : 109.9 IU/ml Serum FT4 Estimation : 14.12 pmol/L Serum U/S TSH Estimation : 12.30 ulU/ml Our family physician proscribed the below medicines for it - Tab Thyrox 50 mcg 1-0-0 empty stomach Tab HCQS 200 (10) 0-1-0 Tab Etova-P 400 (30) 1-0-1 Tab Imutrex 7.5 (4) 0-0-1 every Friday Tab liquid-D3 (4) 0-0-1 every Friday She had completed the course of the above medicines. But there is no result. She has continue her Thyroid Tab as the physician said. We had also consulted other physicians. Some of them said the arthritis problem is because of Thyroid disorder, if she takes Thyroid Tab regularly n do routine checkup regularly then everything will be fine after few months. Some said she needed to take the Thyroid Tab of 50 mcg when she was taking it of 25 mcg. But our family physician never proscribed the 50 mcg Tab before this. Now here is my question Dr. Is/was my mother going under correct/right medication. Is her Thyroid Tab of 50 mcg is okk according to her report I've mentioned above. Shall we go for Ayurveda or naturopathic treatment for her arthritis problem. Give some suggestions for the problem. I will be thankful to you if you can proscribe some medication or remedies or any other treatments for her. Thanks a lot. Regards, Hiral Patel.

Hi hiral first of all you hv given a really comprehensive history, complements ob that. Your mother is suffering most likely from rheumatoid arthritus seeing her high titres ib ra report and history you gv. Immutrex and hcqs are goid tablets but they start working a bit late and immitrex need to be increased gradually. Initially you need to give some dose of low dose steroids to make the former medicines work more effectively. Normal physicians might not be well trained to treat ra, cobsult a rheumatologist of possible, remember natiroapthy and ayurveda does not lead to complete relied unlike allopathy and if you are late joints might undergo destruction nothing will work after that. Many a times naturopathy and ayurveda gives drugs containing gold and lead, steroid powder you can never check because most of time they are self made powders, we do use steroids for ra in allopathy but most of time its low dose, pt knows abt it and we try to stop it as soon as pt gets totally controlled. We monitor regularly also. Also ra is usually a chronoc diseaae, faster you act lesser the meds required in future.

Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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. flax oil, 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, go for walk. avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Soft drinks may not affect thyroid directly but it predisposes to many other problems like gastritis, diabetes nutritional imbalances which aggrevate any exhisting disease. Please stop have softdrinks as they are as bad for health as alcohol drinks.

I am a upsc aspirant and tends to spend an average 12-15 hours everyday with books. However somewhere I have realized that it has been detrimental as far as my health is concerned. I suffered from hypothyroidism for past 1 year however the levels are dropped down to 2 while being on medications. Apart from this, I still tend to feel a kind of fatigue, weariness, courtesy of which I even suffer inconsistent sleep cycles. There have been times when despite of sleeping for a healthy 8 hour time, I still feel tired all through. I've even gained a substantial 8.5 kgs in last 1.5 years. Kindly suggest a balanced diet alongside some multivitamin tablets, which may play a helping hand in my hitherto condition.

Hypothyroidism brings together constellation of metabolic disturbances in the body such as anemia & neuresthinia, apart from thisother features such as psychosomatic changes akin mild depression, weight gain ,low drive, fatiguability ,weariness, palpitation, pain and tiredness in body and legs, nightly cramp like pains in legs, constipation,peripheral neuropathy etc, my opinion holds that there are no dietary changes which may be of actual help, in some cases alkaline diet consisting of high omega fatty acids and other antioxidants may help, this largely comprises of walnuts ,almonds, flax seed, ample ater intake & rationing tea /coffee/ alcohal or tobacco intake, certain blood tests such as CBC, serum iron studies, LFT, pp/fasting blood sugar levels & lipids levels will give physician hint to your overall health, sometimes optimum control on TSH levels achieved through regular dosages of thyronorm or eltroxin for more than 6 months to 12 months will further alleviate some of the symptomatic irregularities which you have mentioned, thus maintain patience with sustained treatment, get test done, take dietary changes as advised and if required get in touch with a qualified doctor .hope this was useful. Good luck.

They report may be within normal biological range for your Clinical Lab, but if you have symptoms then you may need treatment even with "Normal" levels. It is important to understand that "Normal" does not mean "Optimal"

Permanent solution of hyperthyroidism and how to control weight suffering with disease.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr hyperthyroidism can be cured by using radio active iodine, which is taken up by thyroid gland and hyperactive thyroid stops functioning. Usually one dose is sufficient but occasionally a repeat dose may have to be given. It is generally very safe drug. Since it stops thyroid function, that has to supplemented by thyroxine tablets daily. Once hyperactivity is controlled other problems will be in check.

lybrate-user, You are on treatment with thyroxine tablets, which is the right treatment for hypothyroidism. Howere, to be free from all the symptoms TSH level has to be brought between 3 to 4 mU/L. So it appears your Thyroxine dosage is low. Needs to be increased. Thanks.

lybrate-user, I have gone through the query and understand your concern. If you have overt hypothyroidism with TSH above 10 mU/L, then taking levothyroxine is the ONLY OPTION and that too for LIFETIME. This is a hormone deficiency disease. Thyroxine is required for day to day activities and every single metabolic function, plus maintaining body temperature. Hence, it has to be supplemented from outside on daily basis. If not in control then symptoms like weight gain, cold intolerance, irregular menstruation, muscle and joint pains, early fatigue and tiredness, dry skin. Dry hair and hair fall etc are seen. You will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods. Other things like cabbage, cauliflower, peanuts, mustard, radish etc also should be consumed less. Green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits should be consumed more. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Maida should be avoided. Regular exercise of over 1 hour a day is necessary. Looking at your height and weight, it is clear that there is grade 2 obesity with a BMI of 36.37 kgs/M2. Your ideal body weight should be 65 kgs. Your efforts to reduce weight will be successful only if TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L with adequate dosage of levothyroxine. If you have any doubts please do come back. Please understand other than this there is no option. Thanks.
