How can I fix my anemia and hypothyroidism? Doctor said I can't have red meat soy or eggs because of thyroid but I need something to keep iron up
Get another doctor: You need to get with a different physician at least for a second opinion. You either misunderstood or were misinformed, and this is extremely serious business. Diet isn't a factor in hypothyroidism. Anemia needs a proper workup unless it's clearly iron deficiency from monthly loss. If not properly managed, either will cost you your health and perhaps your life.See 1 more doctor answer
I am 28yrs lady, weigh 64kg, hypothyroid (tsh 21 uiu/ml), foods like potato, eggs, turkey breast, iodised salt are useful in treating hypothyroidism?
High TSH=Lost Cycle: Hypothyroidism can be thought of as a condition which slows all body processes. Low thyroid hormone (free t4, free t3) levels induce thyroid stim hormone (tsh) release in an effort to increase hormone pro-duction. Unfortunately the thyroid cannot accommodate. This inc-reases the tsh. It also increases luteinizing hormone (lh) & follicular stimulating hormone (fsh) to a point where the cycle is lost.

Taking Thyronorm 25 mcg tablet for hypothyroid (TSH 5.5) after taking my urine output decreased why?

GFR decrease 97to65 creatinine increase. 04to1 in 15 months F white 50 w/ systemic autoimmune disease, hypothyroid, MGUS do I worry?
GFR DECLINE: Yes, given your diagnoses of SLE, MGUS, and CT exposures, possibly with contrast, your kidneys are at risk and may be under immune protein attack and or experienced contrast injury. Be sure to have your creatinine trends verified, get urine analyzed for protein, red blood cells, other debris, and talk with your docs asap about this. If not seeing a nephrologist, yet, you must.
I have subclinical hypothyroid tsh8. 10 with normal t3t4 on 50mcg thyroxine TSH. 10 & t3t4normal then thyroxine dose decrease or increase?
Decrease: A TSH of 0.1 indicates that your thyroid level is slightly too high. This would be unusual when taking just 50 mcg of thyroxine. I would do a repeat level, and your doctor needs to consider the possibility of superimposed subacute thyroiditis.
What should I do to decrease my weight? I am detected with mild hypothyroidism. TSH level 4.8 (lab normal level 0.2-4.2). I am taking 12.5mg thyronorm
Mild hypothyroidism: Your TSH was mildly high. I suspect your free T4 level is in the normal range. It is possible that even mild hypothyroidism could contribute to difficulty losing weight. You are on a very small dose of thyroid and will likely require a higher dose to correct the level. You need to decrease calories in your diet by decreasing starches, and increase exercise, in order to effectively lose weight.
I m 50 yrs old suffering frm hypothyroidism I take 2 thyroxine daily. Recently my blood shows TSH level. 12.864 should I increase or decrease the dose?
Neither: You should do neither on your own. You should see your doctor, have the dose adjusted, then have the TSH rechecked.
Pt on 150mcg of synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism Palliative pt Can one taper to a lower dose if T4 has stabilized? And TSH is starting to decrease?
Hypothyroid: The patient will be much more comfortable without the symptoms of hypothyroidism, namely the extra fatigue. Why taper the dose unless there are hyperthyroid symptoms. If the TSH is not stable there is no way the T4 is stable, anyway we treat to stabilize TSH. Let the treating Physician manage the medications.See 1 more doctor answer
I am hypothyroid and my TSH is 0.01 my T4 is 17 (reference range 9 - 22) my resting pulse is 60, do I need my thyroxine increased or decreased?
Decreased: The TSH is low, indicating that you are on too much thyroid hormone. While taking thyroid hormone, the T4 level is only useful if the TSH is abnormal, to help gauge how far off the level is. Since your T4 is in the normal range, you should not need a large change in dose, just decreased by around 12.5-25 mcg daily, then recheck levels after 6 weeks.
Can hypothyroid present as finger numbness and stiffness, with slight decrease in reflexes in one arm? Such as if Synthroid (thyroxine) needs adjust in dose?
Unusual: Hypothyroidism can present as carpal tunnel syndrome, which can cause numbness in fingers. Reflexes become slowed in hypothyroidism, but should remain symmetric, so it should not occur in just one arm. It is easy to find out if you are on enough synthroid (thyroxine) by getting a free T4 and TSH level done.
