Question: Hello,

Attached is my thyroid test report and below is my case history -

1. Thyroid detected a year ago, am on Thyronorm 75 mcg since half a year now (initially was 50mcg).

2. My day begins with 30-40 mins gym workout (since 10 years) and I work in an IT firm (desk job). My diet is devoid of oily stuff, outside eatables etc.I have home made food most of the times.

Could you please check my report and per my lifestyle, recommend solutions? I have heard of solutions that could cure thyroid for good?

Brief Answer:
About under active thyroid treatment:

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through our concern.
Your thyroid hormones are still under normal ranges, that means the actual dose of levothyroxine is still low. As long as the thyroid hormones are not corrected, there is a predisposition to gain weight, or difficulty to loose weight. So, you should adjust the dose of Thyronorm (take 100 mcg daily, in empty stomach), check the TSH after 6 weeks until you find the right dose. Then the control will be annual.
In under active thyroid (hashimoto thyroiditis) there is no definite treatment.
The only solutions is to take thryonorm daily and monitor thyroid hormones continuously (as recommended above) to avoid over or under dosage.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis about 7 months ago. Despite fixing some period problems I was having and finally having an explanation for my thyroid problems, I'm still tired all the time, have bouts of insomnia, mood swings, migraine headaches, extreme brain fog and forgetfulness, acne, and muscle pain and spasms. I was first made aware of my thyroid issues at 16 years old, I'm now 22. I've been treated for iron definency anemia since age 11 and am currently on 45 mg of iron a day. I was diagnosed with a mitral valve prolapse which disappeared after getting treatment for the thyroid. My questions are... I've heard that since Hashimoto's is an auto-immune problem that other diseases can be assoiciated with it, what do I need to be tested for, if any thing? What type of things can I do to lose weight?

Hello I'm a 25 year old female diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I have been experiencing the following symptoms on and off for about a year now in the following order throughout the day. Irritability followed by drowsiness and then headache. I have gone to see a neurologist and so far I have had a nerve conductance test which is normal.

I am 56 years old, about 5 3 and weigh 176. I have hypertension, high cholesterol, CAD, mild asthma which is brought on by irritants, Hashimoto s Thyroiditis, and Diverticulosis (I had a colon resection 4 1/2 years ago). I often get terrible muscle cramps in my lower legs, but I have also been experiencing this feeling of pulsating (it almost feels like something is crawling inside my lower legs) and you can actually see it puckering. I ve also had a few episodes of extreme dizziness, immediately followed by swooning (feeling like I was going to pass out), and simultaneous tingling & numbness in my lips, fingers & toes. These may be two completely different problems, but for all I know, they could be related. Any insight you could give me would be much appreciated!

I have low body temperature, and am concerned that my thyroid may be not working optimally. My TSH is 4.13. If I reduce the stress in my life, will my thyroid bounce back ?
