Is it 0.04 or 0.4? If 0.4, its normal. If 0.04, you might be having hyperthyroidism and in hyperthyroidism liver enzymes tend to go high. Controlling thyroid overactivity will calm the liver too. Please see your GP. Get your cardiac status checked too. Keep an observation of the symptoms that you could be having like yellowish discolouration of the skin mainly the white part of eye. Any distension of abdomen. Too high pulse rate or bp or feeling your own heart beat is not normal. For now, decrease your iodine intake which comes from salt, egg, milk and milk products etc. Eat a lot of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach etc. Take multivitamin supplements especially vitamin B and D. Also try to take omega 3 fatty acids and minerals like zinc as much as possible. Wish you good health.

Thyroid Disorders: Symptoms, Treatment and Types

DM - Endocrinology, MD Medicine
Endocrinologist, Faridabad
Thyroid Disorders: Symptoms, Treatment and Types

Thyroid disorders are associated with the thyroid gland. A thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland situated right at the base of one’s neck. The role of the thyroid gland is to carry out numerous metabolic processes within the body. The brain regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland through a feedback mechanism. There are a number of disorders, both severe and trivial, which could affect the thyroid gland.

Main symptoms of thyroid disorders:

  1. Weight loss and weight gain

  2. Changes in heart rate (arrhythmia)

  3. Hair loss

  4. Frequent mood swings

  5. Swollen neck

  6. Sudden bouts of moderate to high fever

Other symptoms include:

  1. Numbness or a tingling sensation in the hands

  2. Constipation

  3. Abnormalities or irregularities in menstruation

  4. Brittle nails and dry skin

  5. Blurred vision

  6. Weakened muscle tone and frequent tremors in the body

Treatment Options:

Intake of thyroid hormone pills may prove beneficial. Once you start with the treatment, you may notice significant improvement within the first two or three weeks. Generally, once affected by thyroid disorders, one might have to be on these medications his/her entire life. Over time, this treatment procedure should result in lowering of the cholesterol levels, increased energy; but in certain cases, might throw up side effects in the form of sudden and unexplained weight loss.

Anti-thyroid medications help reduce and regulate the secretion of the thyroid hormone, thus treating certain thyroid disorders (such as hyperthyroidism).

Beta blockers are drugs help in reducing high blood pressure, heart palpitations and controlling heart rate.

In severe cases, such as enlargement of the thyroid gland, surgery is advised by the doctor, in which the thyroid gland is removed. Tumors or thyroid nodules are also treated by this surgical process.

In cases of thyroid cancer, besides the surgical procedure, radioactive iodine therapy (radioiodine) is recommended. This therapy helps destroy the thyroid gland and other thyroid (malignant) cells which may be taking up iodine. However, the side effects of this technique are minimal. This procedure helps to destroy those tissues which may not have been removed by the surgery. If the thyroid cancer has spread to the lymph nodes or to other parts within the body, this particular mode of treatment can be very effective.

Types of Thyroid Disorders:

  1. Hypothyroidism: This is a condition characterized by an underactive thyroid gland. In this case, sufficient thyroid hormone is not secreted in the body.

  2. Hyperthyroidism: This is characterized by an overactive thyroid gland, that results in overproduction of the thyroid hormone.

  3. Thyroid cancer: It is a type of cancer of the thyroid gland.

  4. Goiter: This is a disorder wherein the thyroid gland gets abnormally enlarged.

  5. Thyroid nodules: This is marked by swelling of the thyroid gland. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist and ask a free question.

I am a diabetic, kindly suggest me about the food habit that is beneficial and harmful.
A diabetic person should be consuming a balanced diet which includes carbs, proteins & fats in proper proportion like everyone else. However, certain precautions needed are avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mangoes, grapes, chikkoos and bananas. Also avoid smoking and alcohol. You should always use whole grain flour, (no maida), millets can be added to the food (bajra, ragi, jowar etc), include soya flour in the diet to provide additional proteins particularly for vegetarians. Fruits like oranges, papaya, pomogranate, apple, pear, guava etc are good. Always eat less quantity at a time. Divide your total daily intake in to 5 portions and consume at a gap of 2 t o 3 hrs. But total intake should not exceed the prescribed amount.

When on treatment tsh level should remain between 3 to 4 milli units/ml, then it considered that hypothyroidism is in control. So present level of 5.75 milli units /ml is also high. You have to still increase the dose.

Also, my stomach is bad (constipation) for 8-9 months. My sleep is also not fully relaxing for many years. But, last one year or so has been really bad interns of weight loss & continuous constipation. I tried homemade remedies but not much relief. Please advice if my sugar medication is the cause of my weight loss & how do I get rid of bad stomach which is troubling me the most. I am thinking of castor oil even to have some relief.

You need to start ayurvedic medicine along with your allopthic medicine to control blood sugar. Plus you need to change your food habits. For a start reduce the qty. Of water you drink in 24 hrs to a max of 1 ltr. Have water in sips & not in gulps. Sugar is a disease of water metabolism. Ayurveda treats it differently. Please consult privately for detailed prescription of ayurvedic medicine & food system.

Hello, I have gone through the values mentioned, following are higher than normal: uric acid, total cholesterol, ldl and alt. Others are fine. Toal cholesterol is marginally high but ldl is definitely much higher. Liver enzyme alt is also marginally high. Not much of a problem but if you are alcoholic then it is better to reduce or stop that. Higher uric acid can cause joit pains, otherwise nothing much to worry.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If one has unrecognized diabetes with very high blood glucose (hyperglycemia), then there is a possibility of loosing considerable amount of glucose through urine. Because if blood glucose goes above 180 mg, kidneys are not able to reabsorb it. So a great deal is lost in the urine. This leads to increased thirst, increased hunger, excess urination. Plus there will unexplained weight loss with severe weakness and fatigue. But if you control blood glucose with proper medications, plus dietary restriction and regular exercise, then there is a possibility of regaining lost weight and usual fitness. You should strive to maintain FBG <100 mg, PP: 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. When that happens you can regain fitness and gain some weight. Thanks.

In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snacks in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.
