User:actually my wife got thyroid test recently
User:and she got it as 5.18
User:which is above the range
Doctor:May I know Which value you are talking about? I mean T3, T4 or TSH?
Doctor:May I know her age?
Doctor:TSH of 5.18 is slightly higher than the normal range.
Doctor:Is she on any medication?
User:she is feeling tiredness, dry skin, irritation, mood swings
User:we are planning for a baby, so she is taking folic acid (one daily)
Doctor:Why was the thyroid levels done?
Doctor:How was the values for T3 and T4?
User:gyne doc suggested to get few tests done as pre-pregnancy
User:she didn't ask for T3 and T4
User:she also asked for Rubella, Hba1c
Doctor:I do not think, that a slightly higher value of TSH should be a problem. You just need to monitor the values. And also the values for T3 and T4.
Doctor:If they are low, then she may require Thyroxin supplementation.
Doctor:Otherwise it should not be of any concern.
User:one more question sir
Doctor:Sure. Please proceed.
User:Rubella Anitbody IGg result was 78, and for this range is 0- 5
User:what is the impact of this, is it good, bad, very good or very bad??
Doctor:IgG is immunoglobulin G.
Doctor:That shows that she is having a high immunity against Rubella.
Doctor:And that is good.
Doctor:I mean very good.
User:no side effects as the value is too high?
Doctor:If IgG is high along with IgM, then we can say that she had a recent Rubella infection.
Doctor:But, otherwise, it is not having any bad effects.
Doctor:In fact it is protective.
User:thanks sir
User:thanks for your time
Doctor:Hope you have understood what I explained.
User:yes it helped a lot understanding the results
Doctor:IgG is high because, she might have got vaccinated for MMR during her childhood.
Doctor:So do not worry about it. Its all going fine.
Doctor:Is there anything else I could help you on?
User:can you suggest any medicine for thyroid control
Doctor:Sorry. I would not be able to do that, as I have not personally examined the patient.
User:ok, np
User:thanks for your time
Doctor:It would be outright unethical on my part.
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
User:i will consult with the doc we are consulting with
Doctor:Surely that would help.
User:thanks sir
User:good night
Doctor:Good night.
