What is the treatment for hypothyroidism?
User rating for this question
I had been diagonised with PCOS and was on Glycomet 500 for the past 4 years. Since last 5 months, I had a feeling that I was gaining weight. So I had a TFT done in November. Result is attached. TSH was 9.68. I had a test done again today and my TSH level is 13.9. The result says that I have subclinical hypothyroidism. Pl. suggest. Last September (2013), I stopped taking Glycomet and I started taking it again after the 1st result.

Brief Answer: High TSH Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. I have read your query & I understand your concerns. Following is my reply: 1) Your TSH levels are very high and needs to be treated. Please visit an endocrinologist for the prescription of accurate dose. 2) Glycomet can be taken for PCO. It is unrelated to TSH values. But hypothyroidism exists and has to be treated. 3) Hypothyroidism is probably causing your weight gain. I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have. Regards, Dr.Mahesh Koregol IVF & Infertility Specialist.
