I recently got my blood test done after a very long time. My tsh levels are quite high - 12.701. And the doctor prescribed thyronorm 100 mcg. I would like to try homeopathic medicines over allopathic medicine. Could you help?

Hello, thanks for the query. Madam I have seen the details given. Please understand that hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disorder, which means your thyroid is either unable to produce the said hormone or is producing very little quantity. This hormone (t4) is required every day in our body for maintaining a number of metabolic activities like maintaining body temperature, heart rate, energy levels, skin texure, normal menstrual cycles, and many more functions plus maintaining normal brain functionng. Therefore, it has to be supplemented in the required quantity from outside every day for lifetime. There is no other treatment. Another aspect is that for having normal menstrual cycle, normal ovulation and later (after marriage) for getting pregnant this hormone is essential. If you have any questions please do come back. Lack the hormone also causes rapid weight gain. Thanks.

Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the query. The information is incomplete. You have just mentioned tsh level, which below the lower normal limit. But there is no information on t3 & t4 levels. Tsh is directly linked to the levels of these two thyroid hormones particularly t4 (thyroxine) which is secreted that gland. Lower level means there is an excess secretion of t4. Plus usually there are quite a few associated symptoms wit that. Unless all the necessary information is given there is no way to advise. Another aspect usually low tsh (below normal lower limit) is indicator of hyper activity of the gland and needs appropriate treatment. Thanks.

Hello, thanks for the query. The information is rather incomplete to give any specific suggestion. It is necessary to know what is the t4 level. Plus are there any symptoms that you have connected to the rise in tsh? Better if you come back with all the necessary information. Thanks.

Hello, thanks for the query. I have gone through the details mentioned. You have mentioned about having hypothyroidism and are on treatment for the same with 75 mc levothyroxine. Usually if one takes adequate dosage of levothyroxine hen t4 & t3 hormone levels are quite normal (with in specified normal range). However, since your tsh has gone to 8.1 mu/l, suggesting the earlier dosage was inadequate. If you have changed the dosage to 75 mcg (since when is not mentioned), tsh level may come down towards normal, but that needs to be checked after 6 weeks of changed dosage. As regards the increase in tgl, (no mention of ld: & t cholesterol), and liver enzymes, these things are interlinked with adaptation of modified lifestyle, and proper control of hypothyroidism. Fatty liver has no medication. It can be controlled by adapting a healthy lifestyle that is doing regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day, avoiding junk foods, deep fried foods, bakery items, foods made from maida, increasing the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. There is a need to avoid alcohol, smoking red meat and colas. I am not aware of your food habits and other aspects of the lifestyle. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

Your t3 and t4 values are normal and tsh is only mildly elevated. It appears that you may only have subclinical hypothyroidism. This needs only follow up. You do not need thyronorm now. Recheck tsh and tpo antibodies after 6 months and revert back to us professor m s seshadri.

Hello, thanks for the query. Madam, by now you must have come to know that hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disorder. This happens because your thyroid gland is unable to produce required quantity of that hormone. Since it is needed for many vital metabolic activities in our body plus for normal functioning of brain, hence needs to be supplemented every day (24 hours). Therefore, one has to take the supplementation for lifetime. Your tsh is within normal limit because of the dosage that you are taking. If that is stopped, then all the symptoms will reappear. So please continue taking the tablet and keep checking thyroid profile at least once in 6 months. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
