I have thyroid issues for the past three years. I got this when I was pregnant. I am taking Thyronorm 75 mcg tablet for the last three months. Recently, I have done the thyroid test and my T3 and T4 are normal and TSH is very low. It shows less than 0.01. What does it indicate? First, I was on 50 mcg and before three months I started 75 mcg as the TSH was approximately 6 at that time. Please explain.
This appears to be due to over treatment or iatrogenic hyperthyroidism.
Here is a list of symptoms experienced due to over treatment. They are tachycardia, palpitations, nervousness, tiredness, headache, excitability, sleeplessness, tremors, anxiety and heat intolerance.
If yes to any of the above, then the dose needs to be titrated. Can you upload your previous thyroid profile report?
Keeping the point that the T3 and T4 are within the limits, I would advise dose reduction slowly and steadily along with TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) monitoring. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and get the dosage altered.
Take 50 mcg of the same medication and go for TSH testing six to eight weeks later. You need not panic.
There are many causes for hair loss. Is there any specific pattern of hair loss, such as receding hair line in the front or patchy hair loss?
Yes, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and even its medication are directly related to hair loss, but other causes need to be ruled out.
Iron deficiency, use of antacids, low stomach acid, hormonal imbalance, PCOD (polycystic ovary disease) and thyroiditis are other causes.
Did you check your hemoglobin recently? What is your age? Do you have any menstrual problems?
I would advise you take a wholesome meal rich in biotin, zinc, antioxidants and essential fatty acids like egg, fish, carrot and beetroot.
Drink warm water and lemon juice in the morning.
I suggest Evening Primrose Oil 500 mg twice a day and tablet Trichoton forte once daily. You can see a definite change after six to eight weeks. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
It is a fact that people lose over 50-100 strands of hair each day. Take care.
