Signs And Symptoms Of Hyperthyroidism?
Good evening doctor, introduce my name is Lina, 29 years old, I want to ask the doctor, when I am pregnant, my doctor said I have a hyperteroid diagnosis with a total t3 of 2.63 referral value 0.9-2.3. T4 total 128 referral values 60-120.tsh-s results 0.06 reference values 0.25-5.0. What does that mean, doctor? Because the doctor did not talk much, why after taking the medicine my hearing was somewhat disturbed? and after I gave birth I never control again for 1.5 years, and now I always feel tired, sickly sickness, and weight has decreased dramatically, please doctor answer, is it true I have hyperteroid disease?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
In your case it was found that TSH decreased, whereas T3 and T4 increased. Both are laboratory criteria for hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism has typical symptoms such as rapid pulse, palpitations, heavy sweating, weakness, weight loss, or tremors.
Hyperthyroid treatment in pregnancy is needed to prevent complications in the mother and fetus. The goal of therapy is
normalize thyroid function with the most minimal dose of drug. Treatment is targeted so that the fT4 level is at the normal upper limit.
An effective and safe anti-thyroid drug for controlling hyperthyroidism in pregnancy, namely propylthiouracil (PTU) and metimazole. In the first trimester it is recommended to use PTU, after 12 weeks of pregnancy metimazol can be used especially if you are worried about side effects to the liver in the use of PTU in the mother. In nursing mothers, anti-thyroid medication
can continue to be given with minimal doses. In addition, the baby also needs to be monitored his TSH levels.
If you experience side effects of the drug you should consult the doctor in charge for evaluation. Your complaint at this time may still be part of a hyperthyroid condition that has not been handled properly before, so we recommend that you do a re-examination with a doctor in order to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam, Dr. Farah
