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
Mr. Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht) is an autoimmune disease with lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland, with anti bodidies agaist thyroid peroxidase enzyme (tpo abs) which destroy thyroid secreting cells, leading to deficiency of thyroxine - with resultant hypothyroidism. Thyroid gland is infiltrated with lymphocytes and may appear firm or lobulated. Anti tpo antibodies are detected in serum in patients with ht. One of the causes for ht is reported to be excessive consumption of iodine in salt. Other causes are infectious diseases may be as a trigger. Patients with ht usually have other family members also having some autoimmune disorders like t1 dm or rheumatoid arthritis, or they themselves may have some other autoimmune condition. Treatment ofr ht is giving thyroxine hormone tablets for life time. Iodine per say has no role in the treatment of this condition. In us this is the most common cause of hypothyroidism and is more common in women compared to men.

Mr. Lybrate-user you should have at least 8- 10 hrs. Of fasting after your dinner. Go to the lab and give fasting sample. (no milk, coffee or tea) only water is allowed. After giving the fasting sample have your medicine if they have tobe taken before food. Wait for 20 min before you have your breakfast. Then one and half hours later you have to give a second sample the ppbs. Hba1c does not require fasting state.

Hi Dates are rich in fibre and many minerals which are quite beneficial for diabetics. If your diabetes is under good control, you can take 2-3 fresh dates per day making sure your diabetes is not shooting up with careful monitoring.

Hello, TSH level seems to be fairly low. If you are not having any symptoms, then you may continue the same dose. Then check TSh after another 8 weeks later, if it is still very low, then dose may be reduced by about a small fraction. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, before getting pregnant earlier were you asked to get thyroid test and blood glucose (ogtt) test done? these are mandatory now. Because quite a few women are developing hypothyroidism, which does affect conception, if conceived then fetal development and if not in control then pregnancy outcome can be bad, as experienced by you. Similarly gestational diabetes (diabetes developing during pregnancy) is seen in about 20% females. Now if you want to have a baby, please get both the tests done. Since you are already on thyroxine treatment, the test is needed to see what is the tsh level. It is recommended that even before conceiving tsh should be maintained around 2 mu/l and during pregnancy - 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mu/l, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 mu/l & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mu/l. If these levels are not achieved, then as mentioned earlier there can be problems with conception and fetal development. Similarly gestational diabetes is also a problematic condition. So get that test too done. Once your tsh is maintained as mentioned, then there will be no problem if you have any doubt, please do come back. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user. What other tests have been done. Just doing a d&c does not have any bearing on fertility. The cause has to be first diagnosed. Please tell me the deails of the tests done so far for you and your husband. Once I get to see the reports we can have a detailed discussion on further course of action. Do not worry so much. If the right treatment is followed you shall conceive soon.

Here are some uses of stem cells

I am Dr. Sharda Jain. I’m the director of the Globus. This is the first dedicated center in Northern India for stem cell therapy. Stem cells therapy uses God’s cells, which are called stem cells and wherever there is any damage in the body, these cells surface and then these people go and rejuvenate and repair the system. Now the best thing which we can do is that we have seen that between 30-40 years, 3/4ths of the deaths are untimely because of silent heart attack, silent stroke. Now, these are the patients who can definitely be helped out once you are 50 years plus.

To stop your aging, to delay your aging and to have a healthy life, you can have anti-ageing stem cell therapy. This is very popular...very popular among doctors and I think all of the people who can afford this particular therapy should come forward and let the stem cell therapy change their lifestyle. The stem cell therapy is a wonderful treatment for osteoarthritis, for rheumatoid arthritis. We will find that we have more than 50 cases which have been doing extremely well and this has to be taken when your disease has been in Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 and not gone on to Stage 4 when it is already late and you cannot get it done at that particular time. It has got wonderful results. For the people who have arthritis of any kind which gives you limitations, it is wonderful. This is also for diabetic patients; Diabetic Type 2 and Diabetic Type 1.

It brings lovely control of diabetes over a period of 6 months to 1 year. For those become 1/3rd, there are many patients of ours who are off insulin, and only on oral drug therapy. The stem cell treatment is a wonderful therapy for cases of rheumatoid arthritis, and all auto-immune disorders. Stem cells are basically anti-inflammatory. In auto-immune disorders you will find, the CRP is strongly deposited and they bring about in 3 months time, noticeable 50% relief in all your symptoms. By 6 months to 1 year, you will find, it is a great relief and you will find wonderful relief in this. This is also very good treatment for various other neurological disorders. Patients of stroke, a patient with heart attack in the past...for a rapid recovery this is absolutely lovely. The people who have duchenne muscular dystrophy, this is the only treatment available along with physiotherapy, and we are here at your service. If you have any of the conditions for anti-ageing, for arthritis, for diabetic, autoimmune disorders.

If you need our help, you can visit us on the site of lybrate.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to control diabetes following steps need to be taken: 1) take appropriate drugs as prescribed by the doctor, without fail or missing a dose. 2) take a balanced but restricted diet, that should provide exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. 3) daily regular exercise of at least 1 hour, brisk waliking is a good option. 4) consume great deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) 5) avoid sweets, sweetened aerated drinks, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. 6) you should strive to maintain fasting level around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. 7) refrain from alcohol and smoking. All these are the things referred as modified lifestyle. With regards.
