Thyroid(TSH) level 96
Hi, I am 26years old Male. I did a health checkup and found my TSH levels are 96.34. To confirm that, Doctor suggested a retest and it showed the levels as 99.46. Below is my recent test results T3: 0.90 Free T4: 0.53 TSH: 99.46 My question is, how it will affect my regular life as my TSH levels are very high? I am not married yet and I fear how it will cause some issue in my marriage life? Am regularly playing and does it help in anyway to keep things in control apart from consuming medicines? Also, I am already facing the symptoms of intolerance to Cold, Scalp/Dry skin. I am completely clueless about what next and how its affects my life. Can someone give answers to my questions?

Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety....increased thyroid stimulating hormone levels suggestive of hypothyroidism I.e under active thyroid gland...The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is an autoimmune thyroid disorder..others being viral infection of thyroid gland,low iodine in diet,radiotherapy,radio active iodine treatment etc...Changes in the menstrual cycle,constipation,depression,dry hair and hair loss,dry skin,fatigue,greater sensitivity to cold,slow heart rate,swelling of the thyroid gland (goiter),unexplained weight gain or difficulty losing weight etc....diagnosis is done by estimating tsh and t3 and t4 levels...Lower-than-normal T4 levels usually mean you have hypothyroidism. However, some people may have increased TSH levels while having normal T4 levels. This is called subclinical (mild) hypothyroidism. It is believed to be an early stage of hypothyroidism...treatment is mainly by replacing thyroid hormones by thyroxin tablets in appropriate dose... Consult nearest physician for clinical examination they will help you further.

Your reports are suggestive of hypothyroidism. Your TSH is very high. Hypothyroidism occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones. Your symptoms of intolerance to cold, dry skin is likely due to the hypothyroidism. I would advise you to visit an endocrinologist so that other associated problems due to elevated TSH levels can be ruled out. You will require levothyroxine to normalize the levels of your thyroid. These following steps may help: - Have a balanced diet of whole grains, beans, lean proteins, and colorful fruits and vegetables - Avoid soy products, Soy may hinder the absorption of thyroid hormones. If you drink or eat too many soy products, you may not be able to properly absorb your medication. - Fiber may interfere with hormone absorption, Fiber is important, so don’t avoid it entirely. Instead, avoid taking your medicine within several hours of eating high-fiber foods. - If you take supplements or medications in addition to thyroid medicine, try to take these medicines at different times. Other medications can interfere with absorption, so it’s best to take your thyroid medicine on an empty stomach and without other medicines or foods. - Reduce stress by methods such as yoga/meditation/tai-chi - Get proper sleep, an adult body requires 6-8 hours of sleep a day to function well If the problems persist or worsen visit the endocrinologist at the earliest.
