Three issues: I'm glad you're managing your thyroid disease and hope you can keep your markers in the healthy range. Weight loss is the result of reprogramming yourself to eat only to satisfy hunger and to get back into an exercise-focused lifestyle. Managing stress is about making needed changes in your environment and perhaps your thinking. Green tea offers none of this, nor does any other pill. ...Read more

Dr. My TSH level is 2.437 uiu/mL and normal showing in result is 0.35000 – 4.9400 CMIA. Do I need to take medicine for this? Can I get pregnant?
Hypothyroid patient for 10+ years. OnThyroxine tablet. TSH level is not stable and keeps fluctuating. Drug Dosage needs to be constantly adjusted.
And NORMAL variability of TSH actual levels and MEASUREMENTS make constant adjustment of the dosage of thyroid replacement difficult at best and probably not indicated! Based upon 3-6 MONTH testing the dosage should be adjusted and remain at that level until the next testing!!! Thyroid replacement is NOT like IJNSULIN ...... My Opinion Only
HOPE it is helpful!

Weight gain, now 82kg,and I am 35 week pregnant, increased TSH level, suggest some methods to reduce my weight.is any problems during delivery?
Weight in Pregnancy: If your TSH is elevated then it needs to be treated with Synthroid (thyroxine) or the equivalent. Your increased weight gain is likely due to hypothyroidism. I never encourage dieting in pregnancy but do encourage proper diet, sometimes with the help of a dietician. Remember to eat for one not two. At this point try not to worry, your delivery will be fine. Lets just have a healthy mom and baby. ...Read more

Elevated TSH: The elevated TSH suggests your thyroid is in the process of failing, probably from Hashimotos thyroiditis, which is autoimmune. If you feel well, you need not take anything now, but your thyroid will likely fail, and you will need to take levothyroxine. This could happen in 3 months or could take years. Many doctors would start meds now. Diet/herbs/iodine/vitamins will not help. ...Read more

Not needed: Many people have a normal T4 but a borderline (5-10) TSH which is often called subclinical hypothyroidism. Endocrinologists are split on weather treatment helps such people but in my opinion it does not help. Your grandmother should be aware that TSH levels are normally a bit higher in healthy older people than in younger people so 6.8 is really not that high. ...Read more
