What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
, hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune disease, where there is lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland and anti bodies against thyroid peroxidase enzyme are produced by our own autoimmune cells, which destroy thyroid secreting cells. This leads to hypothyroidism. One of the cause is said to be excess consumption of salt through food. (iodinated salt). This is the major cause of hypothyroidism in usa. In india it is less common. Women get it more often. A person with ht usually has other family members also having some or the other autoimmune condition. Some of them may also have another autoimmune disease too. Only treatment is to give thyroxine hormone for life time. Iodine has no role in treating the condition.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The main reason for weakness is uncontrolled diabetes. The reported levels are too high. With high blood levels a lot of glucose is lost in the urine, which is the main reason for tired feeling. You may also be having some urinary infection (?) and creatinine is also a bit high. All this can be a consequence of uncontrolled diabetes. There is no mention about BP readings, Lipid profile and weight and height. Plus do you exercise daily? If yes what is the time spent? Plus your dietary intake also needs to be looked at. Plus also inform HbA1c%. My suggestion is that present anti-diabetic treatment is very inadequate, needs to be improved. That can improve your over all health. If you are keen please come in a private conversation with all details asked above, then I will be able to guide. Or else consult your local personal doctor and upgrade the treatment. But that is essential. Thanks.

Hello- Use of condom is absolutely safe for pregnancy and for genital health so there is absolutely no harm in continuing that. Use of coconut oil for lubrication is also good however take precaution that the oil should not be contaminated with a dirty finger or a dirty surrounding.

The ana test is not specific. More tests are needed to know what is causing high ana. Lupus and scleroderma can both cause skin irritation, but so can a lot of other autoimmune diseases. If a diagnosis can be pinpointed, it can be adequately treated as well, and it's prognosis clarified. Meet a good rheumatologist.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Patient on treatment for hypothyroidism, if on adequate dosage of levothyroxine, then TSH level should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check including weakness and even drowsiness. As regards repeated urination, consult the gynecologist and follow her/his advise. Also check her blood glucose level. Thanks.

Will diabetes have any impact on our sexual life especially when it is under control.
Dear lybrate-user, ideally it should not. Since you are already on insulin it means that you are absolutely normal in all other aspects like a non diabetic individual, provided your sugar levels are maintained well. Please start or continue self glucose monitoring and a 3 monthly hba1c record and do not worry.

Apart from low fat, low sugar diet, excercise is good for reducing cholestrol levels. But taking muscle suppliments are not advisable, you should consult dietician for appropiate diet for you, keeping high uric acid and cholestrol in mind. Drink plenty of water.

Hi. Do you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism? If you are suffering from chronic and high grade thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune thyroid disease, in all these cases whether you take allopathic or homoeopathic or any other mode of treatment, it would maintain your thyroid function. Do practice yoga along with these medicines. Yoga-Poses: Kalapbhati: This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath & then exhale quickly, while making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati – you have to forcefully and quickly exhale, but slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times & then release. Ujjayi Pranayam: Sit down on the floor in a cross-legged straight position. Inhale slowly and deeply by both the nostrils. Try to make a hissing sound while you are sucking in the air. After that, stretch your inhale time for a while & then exhale as much as you can without giving any kind of pressure to your other body parts. This type of pranayama is very effective for those suffering from bronchitis, asthma & thyroid. Yoga Nidra (Corpse Pose) also works well in both hypo and hyperthyroidism in reducing stress and calming down. Foods to be avoided in Hypothyroidism: hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.
