I am 34 years old female suffering from hypothyroidism taking thyroxine tablets 100 mcg in the morning. Now it is under control but unable to reduce my weight. Feeling fatigue with body ache unable to do exercise. Kindly help.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to control weight can be successful. Only way to reduce weight is exercise and take a restricted diet. Your caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight (60 kgs X 25 calories = 1500 cals, since you want to reduce weight, then the intake has to be cut by another 500 cals per day. So daily food intake should give only 1000 calories. Plus at least 45 minutes of walking also is required. Without this there is no other way to reduce weight. Thanks.

Hello Doctor. I have hypothyroidism since 2 year I am taking thyrox 50 regularly, can I get normal in future or I have to take tablet all long or any other advice for it. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a deficiency disorder, where thyroid gland produces less or nil thyroxine. Thyroxine is an essential hormone required for day to day functioning and development of brain, plus involved in a variety of vital metabolic reactions in the body hence required every moment in the body. Therefore, it has to be supplemented every day for the lifetime. So treatment will be for whole life. Thanks.

Hi doctor, I am 33 years old female and facing continuous weight problem. I am following proper diet but still my weight is not reducing. I am 5'3 and 75 kg. My weight is increasing 1 kg a month. I have done my thyroid tests and blood test and everything came out normal.

It would have better if you had mentioned the thyroid test values. Anyway, looking at your weight and height, your bmi is 29.29 kgs/m2, which very close to being grade 1 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be about 60 kgs. I am not aware of what efforts you have exactly done to reduce weight. Following are a few suggestions: 1) all your caloric needs have to be based on 60 kg. 2) since you want to loose weight total calories to be taken per day should be 60 x 20 = 1200 calories only. 3) you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed products, pastries and other bakery items, red meat and high fat milk products. 4) consume green leafy vegetables and salads as well as fruits. 5) use whole grain products and millets. 6) refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise daily at least for 1 hour. It is better if you join a gym and do workouts under the guidance of a professional trainer. Your aim should be to loose 1/2 kg weight per kg. Thanks.

First you should follow low calories food for weight loss. * In morning, take 1-2 chapattis with a bowl of cooked green vegetables. You can take a glass of lemon water with it *In Lunch you can take a bowl of raw vegetables like carrot, radish, tomatoes, turnip or beetroot. *In evening, You can take a cup of green tea only with some pieces of friuts like apple, pineapple, pear. Avoid taking banana or mango. *In Dinner, you can take vegetable soup or a bowl of cooked vegetables. But do not take potato, sweet potatoes.* You can take a cup skimmed milk 4 times a week only during day time. * Work out for atleast 1 hour in morning, You can try skipping for 15 minutes with a walk of 30 minutes and 5-10 minutes running. Follow these exercises in the morning - * lie down on flat surface, Raise your legs without bending your knees, Do it for 3-5 times daily * Do not eat fastfoods and soft drinks, as they have high calories and the calories deposit in body in the form of weight if not utilised.

Hello sir/madam, I have a small hiatus hernia and I experience heart aches and stomach problems mostly. I have been prescribed esomeprazole and sucral syrup for a month and I'm having it for 2 weeks now. I have also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism which I have a value of 18.00 tsh and I'm having thyrox50 pills as well for the last two weeks. Can the thyroid be cured completely. Will he chest pain remain life long? Can you please help me.

Hypothyroidism is being controlled by medications like the one you are using. Hiatus hernia causes acid reflux and chronic reflux not only increases morbidity in terms of chest pain and burning but also can cause changes in food pipe lining called Barrets esophagus which is bad. Hence it is advisable to operate for hiatus hernia. I do lapaeoscopic surgery with 1to2 days hospital stay. Very minimal pain and complete cure.

Hello sir, I am getting cough and cold every month and it took more than a week to relief if I will not get any medicine. What should I do?

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Pediatrician,
See the standard ref. For normal values for that lab, and look if they are low or not for your daughter. But once started you have to give lifelong. If still confused, visit paediatric endocrinologist. It is worth, you are dealing with a illness for rest of life.

I am 55yrs male, in my Thyroid test TSH 3RD GENERATION is 11.210. Is there any home treatment for this?

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take 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. 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,

My wife is 47 years old. She has Thyroid, acidity and high BP diseases. Her weight is 95 kgs. Suggest any green tea that helps her to lose weight or else what should be done to lose weight?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, If hypothyroidism is not in control (high TSH levels, then efforts to reduce weight are not fruitful. In fact hypothyroidism leads to weight gain. So firts thing is to bring it under very good control with TSH level maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If this is achieved, then efforts to control weight through regular exercise and diet restriction will be beneficial. Taking green tea by itself will not give any benefit unless diet is controlled with calorie restriction and regular exercise. Thanks.

Lybrate-userji, if vitamin d deficiency is there, then treatment has to be taken for a longer time with a higher dose. There are sachets of vitamin d3, to be taken once a week for 8 weeks, later once a month for a few months. Calcium supplements may also be taken. Thanks.

Docs I want to know that as ramzan has started so it would be ok if I take thyroid tablet at night or have to take one hour early before taking morning food? Thank you.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Ideal recommendation is to take thyroid medicine either one hour before Iftar (meal taken after sunset) or one hour before Sehur (meal taken before dawn); however, most of the patients find it difficult to wait before Iftar or to wake up that early before Sehur and therefore, either miss the dose or take it with the meal. This problem can be easily managed, if medicine is taken at bedtime, which too has an almost identical lowering effect (if not better) on TSH. However, the patient should not take any food for at least 2 hours before bedtime.

TSh is an indication of thyroid hormone production and will not cause pain and if TSH is low or high you need to take medication as needed

She has a thyroid. Pls give some advice to recover very early. She has 10.4% thyroid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if tsh value is 10.4 milli units / ml then treatment with thyroxine has to be initiated immediately, to control hypothyroidism symptoms. Dose will depend on patients weight and tsh levels. Plus she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Plus exercise daily for more than 1 hour, to avoid weight gain.
