Done with TSH test. Is it normal? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Hi I just tested for thyroid TSH and it came 9.5..So need help how to reduce it
May I know the reason why the test was done?
actullay my health is increased also more fats seen below my cheek so i thought to get tht test done
Yes, the TSH values are high.
I suggest that you are secreting low thyroid hormones and that should be causing weight gain.
It can be brought down with thyroid supplements alone.
my main concern is as i am planing for child and it came in between
You will need to take one such product in adequate dose religiously.
yes my dr.gave me thyronorm 50mg tablets currently
I understand your concern.
Even if you conceive, lack of thyroid hormone can affected brain growth of the baby.
just my concern is in this situation can we take chance for a child or not
Thyronorm 50mcg may be just ok dose; however you would need to repeat the test a month or two later.
If TSH values does not decline the dose should be increased upto 100mcg.
It may cause complications with the baby.
You can plan for pregnancy only after TSH value is in control.
Have you followed?
okk..actually we unkonwningly took chance just before the test.this time my period is nt came on time yet.still i m waiting to see period come in next 3-4 days or not..
If periods don't resume in the next 3-4 days, you can get urine tested to rule out pregnancy.
Hypothyroidism by itself can delay periods.
So get the pregnancy test if periods do not resume in the next 3-5 days.
okk.sure but nt sure bt if it happens to be pregnanat then what will be ur advice?
The choice to continue pregnancy is yours then.
But as a physician my opinion would be to continue pregnancy.
Thyronorm dose can be increased further to bring TSH values to normal limits faster
it should take care of any problems.
until it is clear it is not pregnancy related.
yes actullay if it happens then we both want the same but have some fear about normal pregancy thats whay worrying
The chances of complications are high if TSH values are not brought under control.
We can correct the TSH values with medications easily.
anyways thank you Dr XXXXXXX for valuable advice..just one last Q.apart from current tablelt is there anything precasution i take to make TSH less?
So don't be worried.
Get the test done.

There is a list of food
named as goitrogens.
The list includes cabbage, cauliflower, a variety of spinach, soya, millets and so on.
These you need to restrict.
Use iodized salt.
These have positive influence on thyroid problems.
thanks again for ur valuable advice..will do the same as u suggested
Do you have any other query.
No this is the main concern for me currently
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
