Dear lybrate-user, it looks like you had subclinical hypothyroidism during pregnancy.in this condition thyroid problem may resolve after delivery particularly as the dose of thyroxine needed was only 25 ug during pregnancy. Now that you are 4 months post delivery, it is better to stop eltoxine tablet and recheck free t4, tsh and tpo antibodies after 3 months and take an online appointment

Hi, I am a male, age 29, six months before, I was diagnosed hypothyroid. Initially my tsh was around 12, doctor started therapy with 12. 5 mcg thyronorm, slowly he increased the dosage to bring tsh back to normal. Now I am on 37. 5 mcg dose with tsh 3.8.using this dose from last 2 months, I am exercising daily, all my hypothyroid symptoms getting better, I am losing half kg every month, before treatment I was overweighted. My lipid profile is also getting better, but my heart is pounding, racing all day, especially after eating, and feeling anxious, is this the side effect of levothyroxine? How much it will take get adjusted for this dose? Should I use any other medication to combat anxiety, heart palpitations? please help me with this problem. I do not believe in homeopathy system of medicine.

Dear lybrate-user, I note that your hypothyroidism is under good control on 37.5 ug thyronorm. Please continue the same dose. I am glad that you are reducing weight with diet and exercise. Regarding your palpitation, this can occur if your dose is too much but from your test reports it appears that your dose is ok. I suggest that you consult me online so that we can come to a clear diagnosis and then proceed. If you send your email id I will send you a proforma to fill up your smptoms you need to fill this up before the online appointment

Dear lybrate-user, you must understand that if your thyroid functions are under good control with thyrox 100 ug, your weight issue is a different problem. As you are only 38, it is important for you to get your weight down to about 62-65 kg if your height is about 5'5" you can try a paleo diet (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian paleo diet plans are available on the net). You must combine this with regular active exercise like skipping or brisk walking for about an hour per day. Monitor weight monthly if you are not losing weight by about 1 kg per month on the above regimen, you may need to seek consultation. I assume your vitamin d level is low. You may need to spend an hour doing outdoor exercise in sunlight to improve levels and maintain it in the normal range for the hair loss issue you may have to seek a consultation

Follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9.

There is no specific medical treatment fo this issue I note that you are overwieght by nearly 10-15 kg focus on a healthy diet, exercise regularly for 1 hour per day and reduce weight down to about 65-70 kg regards professor m s seshadri.

Heloo Mr. lybrate-user. I would like to suggest better to continue with your thyronorm only. U must need thyronorm for your hypothyroidism. According to my opinion do not exchange. Check your thyroid profile and adjust the dose according to your reports.
