As i said i had a thyroid problem last year in july

What are the medications that you are taking currently?

Yes, this tablet is to be taken lifelong
The dosage can be changed depending on the clinical response to the drug
i have a query that for wat deficiency that thyroid occur
Is ther any way like taking proper food i can reduce it further without taking on laterstage
Yes, you should take minimum amount of iodized salt
However, just dietary intake of iodine is not sufficient to cure the problem
Consulted doc says my glands have become functionless...
That is the reason why most patients need lifelong supplementation in the form of Eltroxin
It is ok
You do not have to worry for that
Please take the medicine Eltroxin and you will be fine
Do not be disheartened
Due to this, will it affect me in future as am single now ...
May I know your age?
at later stage whether this can become a genetic or so...
It may cause difficulty in conceiving
My sis also has this problem when she ws carrying and had 2 abortions
There is a genetic influence that causes Hypothyroidism
It is usually hereditary too
Presently i still have slight headache, very difficult to wake up in the early morning & face will be swollened...
These are typically seen in Hypothyroidism
since was taking this tab from past 3 months have reduced most of my symptoms, but then still have few..is ther any other way by taking intake food i can control or you can suggest me
Iodized salt is used everywhere to control Hypothyroidism
There is no other specific dietary changes required
or no dietary recommendations exist for Hypothyroidism
Thank you too

Take the treatment correctly
Do not stop the treatment at any cost
But, you can still lead a perfectly normal life
I assure you that

They should be able to read it and continue the chat with you
Is that all?
Thank you too
