your taking medicines for..In any case, you should receive periodic checkups if you have a nodule on your thyroid gland. Further tests will show if the nodule has the potential to become cancerous. Depending on the size of the nodule, how it looks on ultrasound and other risk factors your doctor may check for thyroid cancer by performing an aspiration, or biopsy, in which a tissue sample of the nodule is taken and examined. One uncommon type of thyroid cancer can be diagnosed through a blood test that measures levels of a hormone involved in bone formation called calcitonin. Treatments for Hyperthyroidism Thyroid hormone production can be suppressed or halted completely in these ways: Radioactive iodide treatment Anti-thyroid medication Surgery If your doctor decides that radioactive treatment is best, you will be asked to swallow a tablet or liquid containing radioactive iodide in amounts large enough to damage the cells of your thyroid gland and limit or destroy their ability to produce hormones. Occasionally, more than one treatment is needed to restore normal hormone production, and many patients actually develop hypothyroidism as a result of this procedure.

There is no special diet required for hypothyroidism patient. What is needed is following: 1) avoid soy beans, soy containing products, 2) avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee, 3) should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, 4) use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. 5) avoid high fat cheese and can consume low fat milk products. Over caloric intake should match the need based on ideal body weight and daily physical exercise. For exact food to be consumed in terms various items and at different times it would be better if you come in a private conversation.

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.

At our company, we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with 3-6 months of lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification. This would be a great platform to put your wife on as well. Do consult us for a preliminary consult and we could discuss this in more depth. .

For conceiving your TSH level should be below 4.5 mmIU/ml. If you are taking medicine for that then the dose need to be regulated, And if not taking any medicine then need to start. So consult a physician for thyroid medication, before conceiving.

First you need to under stand some thing that the height a person attains is mostly decided right from the time a person is born, by his genetics. Height is mostly hereditary and a persons height is determined by the height of the father or mother. If none of them are taller than 5 feet 4 Inch then it is less likely that you will grow over that. Still some inches of growth is possible by taking some healthy steps which you should always try. Try taking a healthy food and never skip a break fast. Sleep adequately. Growth hormone is released at night in sleep and you should give sufficient time to sleep. Do regular exercise. Preferably stretching exercises like skipping, hanging from the bar or standing tall on ones toes. Also sports such as badminton and basketball also increases the height. Adequate weight control s essential to divert your energy to increase in height. All said, these habbits are good for a healthy life as well. You can try all of them regularly and just hope for the best. Do not fall for all the super natural remedies claiming to increase height in 2-3 weeks.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism produces a number of symptoms like early fatigue, tiredness, weight gain, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, muscle and joint pain, irregular periods, excess flow, occasionally giddiness and nausea may be there. Ideally when on treatment tsh level should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l, to relieve all symptoms. So it appears her current dose of thyroxine is inadequate, needs to be increased. Plus patients weight is much high, almost having grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 29.16 kgs/m2 (normal <23 kgs). With high tsh level efforts to reduce weight also do not become successful. Thanks.
