Hello doctor,

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism two years back with TSH 7.45. SGOT 61.0, SGPT 42.0, triglyceride 241, cholesterol 220, LDL 125.8, HDL 46.0. The BT report a year back is as follows: TSH 8.38, T3 92.3, T4 6.75, SGOT 26.5, SGPT 30.24, triglyceride 188.85, cholesterol 215.61, HDL 44.32, LDL 156.6. Ratio 4.90. I feel a continuous ache in my eyes, headache, fatigue, become anxious easily, get a severe headache if exposed to heat. I get hungry every three to four hours. I have been doing exercise and Yoga for last eight months. It brings slight relief in morning hours and by 12 PM fatigue sets in. I was taking Thyroxine 25 mcg for six months last year. I used to have low BP and low pulse, felt giddiness in evening and so reduced Thyroxine dosage to 12.5 mcg for last five months. I am not diabetic. Kindly advice.



Welcome to

Your all problems are linked with your poor controlled thyroid disease. All your previous thyroid reports are out of range. You need to start Levothyroxine (Thyronorm or any other brand available in your city) 25 mcg once daily in morning on empty stomach. At least 30 minutes before eating anything.

Your cholesterol is also not controlled. Start tablet Rosuvastatin (Rosuvas F) plus Fenofibrate combination 10 mg once in the night after dinner. Please check your blood sugar as well. A headache in heat is very common for that you can use an umbrella and try avoiding sun exposure if possible.
