Hope I have cleared your doubts.
Is there anything else I can help you on?
I need to talk about my wife also
She is having pain in her both palm
two three of her fingers feel as if they have become stiff
she is not able to fold her hands properly
May I know her age?
29 even she cannot use the knife
the situation worsens in the winter
Since how long she has been facing this problem?
she has been diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency and thyroid
the problem is since two years
but this year the problem has worsened
Is she on supplementation for both?
topcid 40 and calcirol XXXXXXX for vitamin d
Did you mean hypothyroid or hyperthyroid?
and thyoxine 100g for thyroid
it was within the normal range
Let me explain.
The difficulty in folding the hands could be due to different reasons.
Another factor to be ruled out in your wife's case is about other hormones.
It is important to check out with an endocrinologist to see if her other hormone levels are within the normal range.
no there in no pain in other joints
and test for arthritis has also been done
Fine. So most probably, it could be due to hypothyroidism.
If her thyroid levels stay at optimum for sometime, then she should be getting better with the hand joints.
regarding vitamin d supplements shld they be continued
It is fine to continue the vitamin D supplements based on the investigation levels.
for how much time'
It could vary from period of 2 months to 6 months. Or it could be continued, if the examining physician feels that it is needed to continue.
Hope I had been able to help you
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
