Having thyroid problem, taking eltroxin. Gaining weight and having hair fall. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
Good evening, This is XXXXXX.
I am a software engineer and 24 years old.
Please proceed with your query
I have thyroid problem from past 13 years.
I am taking the medicines of electroxin daily.
Lat time I have checked with one doctor, and the doctor has suggested me to take the dosage of 150gr per one day and the other day 175 gr
Lat time the new doctor suggested me to take only TSh test.
And as per his suggestion I took only TSH test and he gave the dosage like this.
But in the last time doctor informed that I am a obesity patient not the thyroid patient.
I want to tell you more about this. I have a hythyroid problem.
After I am taking this dosage I gained more weight.
Yesterday I went to the same doctor and doctor said the samething, And not listening that I have a thyroid problem.
Could you help me on this please Doctor..
What is your latest TSH level?
TSH level is 4.12uIU/ml.
May I know your age?
And even I am getting more sleep, hair is redusing so much.
I am 26 years old.
And now my weight is 67.
Please repeat your TSH. free T3 and free T4 levels
4.12 is usually normal
However, your symptoms are confusing
Please repeat the test and let me know
Okay. Can I take TSH, T3 and T4 tests..
Yes, you should take it
But my problem is weight now, Why I am getting more weight If I am taking the dosage like this?
You will put on weight if your thyroid hormones are low
Okay. Is the correct dosage I am taking now?
Yes, it seems fine
The TSH report was 4 months back.
Please repeat the test now
