My wife often reacts very badly to things/ events, which we feel are normal (common) and need not reaction. She starts looking petty matters in big scale. She also feels that she is not good at anything and she can not do good. I tried to convince her to consult a psychiatrist but she denies to go to psychiatrist. She says that she can not share her problems with any third person. When I spoke to one psychiatrist, he said untill he meet the paitent and talk, he can not say anything. In such situation, what should I do?

I understand your difficulty in this situation. There are 2 things that you can do: 1. The problem that your wife seems to be experiencing most often leads to arguments and fights within couples. It is often the case that each person feels that the other is largely responsible and doesn't want help for themselves. Your wife's stand is completely understandable. You can seek professional help for the couple as a marital unit, rather than just your wife. That approach will make her more forthcoming, since it'll ensure that the spotlight will not rest on just her. Also, it puts down a healthy initiation for therapy, since she will get to see that you want mutual happiness, without solely blaming her or her behaviour for the problems. 2. You can use technology, with apps like lybrate ensuring that your wife doesn't need to leave the comfort of her home to meet a psychiatrist. Both of you could have an online consult. That would definitely lower her reluctance to visit a psychiatrist.

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

The thyroid gland within the body plays an important role in regulating your metabolism among many other functions. This is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and plays an important role within your body. However, a common condition that may afflict it is hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. It is even more of a problem if you are pregnant as it may affect your baby’s development in the womb. It has also been noticed that pregnancy in itself may cause hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism-

Pregnant women may also exhibit symptoms common to other patients who are suffering from hypothyroidism. These may include:

  1. Fatigue along with lethargy.

  2. Mild to significant weight gain.

  3. Constipation.

  4. Feeling cold with severe chills

The thyroid gland produces the T4 hormone responsible for regulating many mechanisms within the body such as metabolism. With hypothyroidism, the production of this hormone decreases or stops altogether. This is important as disruption in the production of the hormone may disrupt the normal development of your baby.

Effects of Hypothyroidism on your baby-

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy can affect your child’s developmental abilities. Many studies in this field have shown that such children tend to have learning difficulties and may even display lower IQ scores during tests. It was noticed that sometimes, hypothyroidism during pregnancy wasn’t diagnosed correctly as the pregnant mother did not show much apparent symptoms. This is also a major issue in the early diagnosis of the problem. Hence, it is absolutely imperative to test for thyroid problems early during pregnancy.

Prevention is the Best Cure-

It is thus very important that mothers be screened properly for thyroid issues even before they are pregnant and while they are pregnant. Some of the medically recommended steps that should be taken are –

  1. Screening before pregnancy as this can help to devise a solution for this condition.

  2. Women with goiter or enlarged thyroid should most certainly be screened.

  3. Women with a family history of hypothyroidism should be screened.

Treatments for Hypothyroidism During Pregnancy-

The doctors may suggest thyroid hormone replacement therapy wherein artificial T4 hormone is introduced into the body. This helps to maintain a constant rate of the thyroid hormone within the body. This can be done even before pregnancy as the developing fetus is completely dependent on the mother for its thyroid hormone until at least 12 weeks when the baby’s body can start producing it on its own. Also, the levels of this hormone should be regularly checked within the body through the TSH or the thyroid stimulating hormone tests to ensure that the levels are at a safe minimum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Extremely Low Thyroxine And Its Complications!

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Extremely Low Thyroxine And Its Complications!

What is Thyroxine?
Thyroxine, also known as T4, is the main hormone which is secreted by the thyroid gland into the bloodstream. Although it is an inactive form, most of it is converted to an active form called triiodothyronine by organs such as the liver and kidneys. The hypothalamus in the brain along with the pituitary and thyroid glands modulate the production and release of thyroid hormones.

What Happens If You Have Too Little Thyroxine?
If the level of thyroxine in the blood is low, then the pituitary gland releases more thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) to try and stimulate the thyroid gland to make more thyroxine. Therefore, a raised level of TSH means the thyroid gland is underactive and is not making enough thyroxine. When the thyroid gland produces very little quantity of thyroxine, then the condition is known as hypothyroidism.

As thyroid hormones are essential for physical and mental development, so hypothyroidism during development or before birth and during childhood causes mental impairment and reduced physical growth.

Symptoms usually show a slow and gradual progression before they become worse over months or years as the level of thyroxine in the body gradually falls.

In adults it causes a decrease in metabolic rate resulting in symptoms that include:

Less Common Symptoms include:

Etiology

  1. Autoimmune diseases: The immune system makes antibodies against your body cells
  2. Poor iodine intake 
  3. Use of certain drugs like amiodarone and lithium
  4. Surgical removal or injury to thyroid gland
  5. Underactive thyroid gland (congenital hypothyroidism)

Complications

  1. Low thyroxine level causes the blood fats (lipids) - cholesterol etc., to rise
  2. Pregnant females have an increased risk of developing some pregnancy complications like:
  3. Pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in urine)
  4. Anemia
  5. Premature labor
  6. Low birth weight
  7. Stillbirth
  8. Serious bleeding after the birth
  9. Hypothyroid coma (myxedema coma) is a very rare complication
  10. Myxedema coma is a rare but life-threatening state of extreme hypothyroidism

Diagnosis and Investigations:

It involves a blood test which screens the levels of TSH and free T4 and T3. Usually, the reports show high TSH and T3 and T4 levels.

Treatment:

Treatment usually involves taking a daily tablet of thyroid hormone levothyroxine to replace the missing thyroxine. Treatment works very well for most people with hypothyroidism but is required for life. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Elderly And Kidney Diseases - What Precautions You Should Take?

Elderly And Kidney Diseases - What Precautions You Should Take?

Elderly and Kidney Diseases - What precautions you should take.

The percentage of elderly people, classified as those above 60 years of age, is expected to go up in India from 8% in 2015 to 19 % in 2050. Various challenges including managing their health issues have been highlighted in a report released by UN Population Fund India titled ‘caring for our elders: Early response India Ageing Report 2017’. So in the country where we are already facing scarcity of health infrastructure, we have to be more aware regarding the increasing health problems and what steps we can take as primary prevention to decrease the burden of diseases in ourselves and our near and dear ones.

Like heart diseases and osteoarthritis of knees, kidney diseases are now recognized as a major medical problem worldwide. In India, Global Burden Disease 2015 kidney diseases are ranked as the eighth leading cause of death.

Diabetes and Blood pressure are major contributors of kidney diseases in India; others include long term pain killer intake, infections and renal stones.

Respect Your Kidneys – What we should do?

Kidney diseases are emerging as one of the important causes of morbidity which will largely affect your quality of life. There are however several easy ways to reduce the risk of developing kidney disease.

Daily Exercise - Stay fit and active

Staying fit and active helps to reduce your blood pressure and achieve better sugar control and therefore reduces the risk of Chronic Kidney Disease. 20-30 min of brisk walking is recommended at least 5 days a week.

Keep good control of your Diabetes (Sugar)

Kidney damage from diabetes can be reduced or prevented if detected early. It is important to keep control of blood sugar levels as they decrease the progression of kidney damage.

Control Hypertension - Monitor your blood pressure

We all are aware that high blood pressure can lead to a stroke or heart attack; very few know that it is also one of most common cause of progression of kidney damage. So it’s not important which or how many tablets you are taking, the goal is control of blood pressure as per your age.

Eat healthy and keep your weight in check

This can help prevent diabetes, heart disease and other conditions associated with Chronic Kidney Disease.

Reduce your salt intake. The recommended sodium intake is 5-6 grams of salt per day (around a teaspoon). In order to reduce your salt intake, try and limit the amount of processed and restaurant food and do not add salt to food.

Maintain a healthy fluid intake

Although there is not a single measure we can prescribe all but we should consume sufficient water to maintain good hydration. Consuming plenty of fluid helps the kidneys clear sodium, urea and toxins but consuming excess water can also lead to state of fluid overload. So, always consult your nephrologist for exact amount recommended for you. In addition, people who have already had a kidney stone are advised to drink 2 to 3 litres of water daily to lessen the risk of forming a new stone.

Quit Smoking

Smoking slows the flow of blood to the kidneys. When less blood reaches the kidneys, less amount of toxins are removed. Smoking also increases the risk of kidney cancer significantly.

Do not take OTC (over-the-counter pills - pain killers and anti-acidity)on a regular basis

Common drugs such non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, diclofenac and even anti-acidity drugs like omeperazole are known to cause kidney damage if taken regularly and for long time. So, avoid taking these medicines for longer time without advice of your doctor.

 ‘High Risk’ factors – When you should get your kidneys evaluated

  • you have diabetes for long time (especially if you are also having diabetic related eye problems)
  • you have hypertension
  • you are obese
  • one of your parents or other family members suffers from kidney disease
  • you are of African, Indian, or Aboriginal origin

‘Early yet alarming Symptoms’

  • Froathing in urine
  • Decreased urine output
  • Increased frequency of micturition at night (Going for passing urine again and again at night hours)
  • Swelling under eye lids and on ankles
