Brief Answer:
These medicines are fine for the baby.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Calcimax, Zincovit, and Vitamin D syrup contains calcium, multivitamins, and vitamin D respectively.

These drops are prescribed to all newborn babies for supplementation and to prevent the deficiency of these nutrients.

This supplements will promote the optimum growth in infants.

These medications are fine, safe and continue as prescribed by the doctor.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.

My daughter is just 18 days old now. (Born on 11th October 2013). After 3 days of her birth her blood was taken for screening and in the results 17 OHP was hign (183). So our doctor advised us to do the test once again. The second time 17 OHP came to normal level (4.8).
But her T4 level was high (20.2) . Her TSH and T3 was on normal level. We took her to a Pediatric Endocrinologist and she said that the T4 level is nothing to worry as TSH level is normal and she also advised that it will come down by itself.
Can you also please look into the report i have attached.

Brief Answer:
Report rules out hypothyroidism, nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I went through the reports you have attached along with this query.

Thyroid screening is primarily done to look for hypothyroidism in which there will be low T3, T4, and increased TSH.

Low T3 and T4 with high TSH are suggestive of hypothyroidism and it will effect the child development adversely.

As your daughter T3, T4 are not low and TSH is in normal, this report is normal.

Nothing to worry about increased T4 as the TSH value is in normal limits. As the pediatric endocrinologist said this variation is normal and this will come down.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
