Friends today I am discussing about a problem known as Thyroid Disease & Pregnancy. Thyroid disease is a group of disorders that affects the thyroid gland. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck that makes thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones control how your body uses energy, so they affect the way nearly every organ in your body works—even the way your heart beats. The thyroid is a small gland in your neck that makes thyroid hormones. Sometimes the thyroid makes too much or too little of these hormones. Too much thyroid hormone is called hyperthyroidism and can cause many of your body’s functions to speed up. “Hyper” means the thyroid is overactive. Too little thyroid hormone is called hypothyroidism and can cause many of your body’s functions to slow down. “Hypo” means the thyroid is underactive. If you have thyroid problems, you can still have a healthy pregnancy and protect your baby’s health by having regular thyroid function tests and taking any medicines that your doctor prescribes. What role do thyroid hormones play in pregnancy? Thyroid hormones are crucial for normal development of your baby’s brain and nervous system. During the first trimester—the first 3 months of pregnancy—your baby depends on your supply of thyroid hormone, which comes through the placenta . At around 12 weeks, your baby’s thyroid starts to work on its own, but it doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone until 18 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Two pregnancy-related hormones—human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and estrogen—cause higher measured thyroid hormone levels in your blood. The thyroid enlarges slightly in healthy women during pregnancy, but usually not enough for a health care professional to feel during a physical exam. Thyroid problems can be hard to diagnose in pregnancy due to higher levels of thyroid hormones and other symptoms that occur in both pregnancy and thyroid disorders. Some symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism are easier to spot and may prompt your doctor to test you for these thyroid diseases. Another type of thyroid disease, postpartum thyroiditis, can occur after your baby is born. Hyperthyroidism in Pregnancy Some signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism often occur in normal pregnancies, including faster heart rate, trouble dealing with heat, and tiredness. Other signs and symptoms can suggest hyperthyroidism: fast and irregular heartbeat shaky hands unexplained weight loss or failure to have normal pregnancy weight gain Causes of hyperthyroidism in pregnancy Hyperthyroidism in pregnancy is usually caused by Graves’ disease and occurs in 1 to 4 of every 1,000 pregnancies in the United States.1 Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder. With this disease, your immune system makes antibodies that cause the thyroid to make too much thyroid hormone. This antibody is called thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin, or TSI. Graves’ disease may first appear during pregnancy. However, if you already have Graves’ disease, your symptoms could improve in your second and third trimesters. Some parts of your immune system are less active later in pregnancy so your immune system makes less TSI. This may be why symptoms improve. Graves’ disease often gets worse again in the first few months after your baby is born, when TSI levels go up again. If you have Graves’ disease, your doctor will most likely test your thyroid function monthly throughout your pregnancy and may need to treat your hyperthyroidism.1 Thyroid hormone levels that are too high can harm your health and your baby’s. Pregnant woman having her blood drawn If you have Graves’ disease, your doctor will most likely test your thyroid function monthly during your pregnancy. Rarely, hyperthyroidism in pregnancy is linked to hyperemesis gravidarum —severe nausea and vomiting that can lead to weight loss and dehydration. Experts believe this severe nausea and vomiting is caused by high levels of hCG early in pregnancy. High hCG levels can cause the thyroid to make too much thyroid hormone. This type of hyperthyroidism usually goes away during the second half of pregnancy. Less often, one or more nodules, or lumps in your thyroid, make too much thyroid hormone. Untreated hyperthyroidism during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage premature birth low birthweight preeclampsia—a dangerous rise in blood pressure in late pregnancy thyroid storm—a sudden, severe worsening of symptoms congestive heart failure Rarely, Graves’ disease may also affect a baby’s thyroid, causing it to make too much thyroid hormone. Even if your hyperthyroidism was cured by radioactive iodine treatment to destroy thyroid cells or surgery to remove your thyroid, your body still makes the TSI antibody. When levels of this antibody are high, TSI may travel to your baby’s bloodstream. Just as TSI caused your own thyroid to make too much thyroid hormone, it can also cause your baby’s thyroid to make too much. Tell your doctor if you’ve had surgery or radioactive iodine treatment for Graves’ disease so he or she can check your TSI levels. If they are very high, your doctor will monitor your baby for thyroid-related problems later in your pregnancy. An overactive thyroid in a newborn can lead to a fast heart rate, which can lead to heart failure early closing of the soft spot in the baby’s skull poor weight gain irritability Sometimes an enlarged thyroid can press against your baby’s windpipe and make it hard for your baby to breathe. If you have Graves’ disease, your health care team should closely monitor you and your newborn. How do doctors diagnose hyperthyroidism in pregnancy? Your doctor will review your symptoms and do some blood tests to measure your thyroid hormone levels. Your doctor may also look for antibodies in your blood to see if Graves’ disease is causing your hyperthyroidism. Learn more about thyroid tests and what the results mean. How do doctors treat hyperthyroidism during pregnancy? If you have mild hyperthyroidism during pregnancy, you probably won’t need treatment. If your hyperthyroidism is linked to hyperemesis gravidarum, you only need treatment for vomiting and dehydration. If your hyperthyroidism is more severe, your doctor may prescribe antithyroid medicines, which cause your thyroid to make less thyroid hormone. This treatment prevents too much of your thyroid hormone from getting into your baby’s bloodstream. You may want to see a specialist, such as an endocrinologist or expert in maternal-fetal medicine, who can carefully monitor your baby to make sure you’re getting the right dose. Doctors most often treat pregnant women with the antithyroid medicine propylthiouracil (PTU) during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Another type of antithyroid medicine, methimazole , is easier to take and has fewer side effects, but is slightly more likely to cause serious birth defects than PTU. Birth defects with either type of medicine are rare. Sometimes doctors switch to methimazole after the first trimester of pregnancy. Some women no longer need antithyroid medicine in the third trimester. Small amounts of antithyroid medicine move into the baby’s bloodstream and lower the amount of thyroid hormone the baby makes. If you take antithyroid medicine, your doctor will prescribe the lowest possible dose to avoid hypothyroidism in your baby but enough to treat the high thyroid hormone levels that can also affect your baby. Antithyroid medicines can cause side effects in some people, including allergic reactions such as rashes and itching rarely, a decrease in the number of white blood cells in the body, which can make it harder for your body to fight infection liver failure, in rare cases Stop your antithyroid medicine and call your doctor right away if you develop any of these symptoms while taking antithyroid medicines: yellowing of your skin or the whites of your eyes, called jaundice dull pain in your abdomen constant sore throat fever If you don’t hear back from your doctor the same day, you should go to the nearest emergency room. You should also contact your doctor if any of these symptoms develop for the first time while you’re taking antithyroid medicines: increased tiredness or weakness loss of appetite skin rash or itching easy bruising If you are allergic to or have severe side effects from antithyroid medicines, your doctor may consider surgery to remove part or most of your thyroid gland. The best time for thyroid surgery during pregnancy is in the second trimester. Radioactive iodine treatment is not an option for pregnant women because it can damage the baby’s thyroid gland. Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy Symptoms of an underactive thyroid are often the same for pregnant women as for other people with hypothyroidism. Symptoms include extreme tiredness trouble dealing with cold muscle cramps severe constipation problems with memory or concentration Woman with a coat shivering outdoors You may have symptoms of hypothyroidism, such as trouble dealing with cold. Most cases of hypothyroidism in pregnancy are mild and may not have symptoms. What causes hypothyroidism in pregnancy? Hypothyroidism in pregnancy is usually caused by Hashimoto’s disease and occurs in 2 to 3 out of every 100 pregnancies.1 Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder. In Hashimoto’s disease, the immune system makes antibodies that attack the thyroid, causing inflammation and damage that make it less able to make thyroid hormones. How can hypothyroidism affect me and my baby? Untreated hypothyroidism during pregnancy can lead to preeclampsia—a dangerous rise in blood pressure in late pregnancy anemia miscarriage low birthweight stillbirth congestive heart failure, rarely These problems occur most often with severe hypothyroidism. Because thyroid hormones are so important to your baby’s brain and nervous system development, untreated hypothyroidism—especially during the first trimester—can cause low IQ and problems with normal development. How do doctors diagnose hypothyroidism in pregnancy? Your doctor will review your symptoms and do some blood tests to measure your thyroid hormone levels. Your doctor may also look for certain antibodies in your blood to see if Hashimoto’s disease is causing your hypothyroidism. Learn more about thyroid tests and what the results mean. How do doctors treat hypothyroidism during pregnancy? Treatment for hypothyroidism involves replacing the hormone that your own thyroid can no longer make. Your doctor will most likely prescribe levothyroxine , a thyroid hormone medicine that is the same as T4, one of the hormones the thyroid normally makes. Levothyroxine is safe for your baby and especially important until your baby can make his or her own thyroid hormone. Your thyroid makes a second type of hormone, T3. Early in pregnancy, T3 can’t enter your baby’s brain like T4 can. Instead, any T3 that your baby’s brain needs is made from T4. T3 is included in a lot of thyroid medicines made with animal thyroid, such as Armour Thyroid, but is not useful for your baby’s brain development. These medicines contain too much T3 and not enough T4, and should not be used during pregnancy. Experts recommend only using levothyroxine (T4) while you’re pregnant. Some women with subclinical hypothyroidism—a mild form of the disease with no clear symptoms—may not need treatment. Pregnant woman with a pill in one hand and a glass of water in the other Your doctor may prescribe levothyroxine to treat your hypothyroidism. If you had hypothyroidism before you became pregnant and are taking levothyroxine, you will probably need to increase your dose. Most thyroid specialists recommend taking two extra doses of thyroid medicine per week, starting right away. Contact your doctor as soon as you know you’re pregnant. Your doctor will most likely test your thyroid hormone levels every 4 to 6 weeks for the first half of your pregnancy, and at least once after 30 weeks.1 You may need to adjust your dose a few times. Postpartum Thyroiditis What is postpartum thyroiditis? Postpartum thyroiditis is an inflammation of the thyroid that affects about 1 in 20 women during the first year after giving birth1 and is more common in women with type 1 diabetes. The inflammation causes stored thyroid hormone to leak out of your thyroid gland. At first, the leakage raises the hormone levels in your blood, leading to hyperthyroidism. The hyperthyroidism may last up to 3 months. After that, some damage to your thyroid may cause it to become underactive. Your hypothyroidism may last up to a year after your baby is born. However, in some women, hypothyroidism doesn’t go away. Not all women who have postpartum thyroiditis go through both phases. Some only go through the hyperthyroid phase, and some only the hypothyroid phase. What are the symptoms of postpartum thyroiditis? The hyperthyroid phase often has no symptoms—or only mild ones. Symptoms may include irritability, trouble dealing with heat, tiredness, trouble sleeping, and fast heartbeat. Symptoms of the hypothyroid phase may be mistaken for the “baby blues”—the tiredness and moodiness that sometimes occur after the baby is born. Symptoms of hypothyroidism may also include trouble dealing with cold; dry skin; trouble concentrating; and tingling in your hands, arms, feet, or legs. If these symptoms occur in the first few months after your baby is born or you develop postpartum depression , talk with your doctor as soon as possible. What causes postpartum thyroiditis? Postpartum thyroiditis is an autoimmune condition similar to Hashimoto’s disease. If you have postpartum thyroiditis, you may have already had a mild form of autoimmune thyroiditis that flares up after you give birth. Woman holding her baby. Postpartum thyroiditis may last up to a year after your baby is born. How do doctors diagnose postpartum thyroiditis? If you have symptoms of postpartum thyroiditis, your doctor will order blood tests to check your thyroid hormone levels. How do doctors treat postpartum thyroiditis? The hyperthyroid stage of postpartum thyroiditis rarely needs treatment. If your symptoms are bothering you, your doctor may prescribe a beta-blocker, a medicine that slows your heart rate. Antithyroid medicines are not useful in postpartum thyroiditis, but if you have Grave’s disease, it may worsen after your baby is born and you may need antithyroid medicines. You’re more likely to have symptoms during the hypothyroid stage. Your doctor may prescribe thyroid hormone medicine to help with your symptoms. If your hypothyroidism doesn’t go away, you will need to take thyroid hormone medicine for the rest of your life. Is it safe to breastfeed while I’m taking beta-blockers, thyroid hormone, or antithyroid medicines? Certain beta-blockers are safe to use while you’re breastfeeding because only a small amount shows up in breast milk. The lowest possible dose to relieve your symptoms is best. Only a small amount of thyroid hormone medicine reaches your baby through breast milk, so it’s safe to take while you’re breastfeeding. However, in the case of antithyroid drugs, your doctor will most likely limit your dose to no more than 20 milligrams (mg) of methimazole or, less commonly, 400 mg of PTU. Thyroid Disease and Eating During Pregnancy What should I eat during pregnancy to help keep my thyroid and my baby’s thyroid working well? Because the thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormone, iodine is an important mineral for you while you’re pregnant. During pregnancy, your baby gets iodine from your diet. You’ll need more iodine when you’re pregnant—about 250 micrograms a day.1 Good sources of iodine are dairy foods, seafood, eggs, meat, poultry, and iodized salt—salt with added iodine. Experts recommend taking a prenatal vitamin with 150 micrograms of iodine to make sure you’re getting enough, especially if you don’t use iodized salt.1 You also need more iodine while you’re breastfeeding since your baby gets iodine from breast milk. However, too much iodine from supplements such as seaweed can cause thyroid problems. Talk with your doctor about an eating plan that’s right for you and what supplements you should take.

Friends today I am discussing about Hyperglycemia, Diabetes. TYPE 2 DIABETES SYMPTOMS According to the American Diabetes Association, in patients with type 2 diabetes, hyperglycemia (high blood glucose) typically develops gradually and, at earlier stages, is often not severe enough for you to notice any classic symptoms. This may be why many people are undiagnosed for many years, but being able to recognize the symptoms of high blood sugar can help you to diagnose diabetes, manage it better, and prevent an emergency. For those people already diagnosed with diabetes, having a blood sugar that is sporadically higher than usual doesn't necessarily put you in immediate danger. However, chronically elevated blood sugar may be problematic. Over time, blood sugar levels that are too high can affect the small and big vessels of the body, leading to complications of the eyes, heart, kidneys, and feet. hyperglycemia symptoms Frequent Symptoms Experiencing common hyperglycemia symptoms may be a diabetes warning sign for those who have not yet been diagnosed. If you know you have diabetes, noting these symptoms may be an indication that a tweak in your treatment plan is needed. Excessive Thirst (Polydipsia) In an effort to restore blood sugar balance, your body tries to get rid of excess sugar through urine. As a result, the kidneys are forced to work overtime absorbing excess sugar. But, because they are unable to keep up with the glucose load, they pull fluids from your tissues along with the excess sugar. The more fluid you lose, the stronger your urge is to drink. If you find that you can continuously drink and not feel as though your thirst is quenched, or that you have a severely dry mouth, this may be a sign of hyperglycemia. Increased Hunger (Polyphagia) Excess sugar in your bloodstream means that your body is unable to utilize it for fuel. Hence, your cells become starved for energy and you feel extra hungry and, in extreme cases, unsatiable. But the more carbohydrates you consume, the higher the blood sugars rise. Increased Urination (Polyuria) More frequent trips to the bathroom, especially at night, can be a sign of high blood sugar. This is a result of the kidneys drawing extra water out of your tissues to dilute the extra sugar in your blood and get rid of it through the urine. Blurry Vision High sugar levels force the body to pull fluid from your tissues, including the lenses of your eyes, which can affect your ability to focus and result in blurry vision. Fatigue When sugar remains in the blood as opposed to being taken to the cells for energy, your cells become starved of food, leaving you to feel sluggish or fatigued. This can commonly happen after you've eaten a meal, particularly one that is rich in carbohydrates. Severe Symptoms These particular symptoms tend to occur when someone has had hyperglycemia for a long time, or when the blood sugar is extremely elevated. They usually indicate an emergency. Stomach Pain Chronic hyperglycemia can result in nerve damage to the stomach (gastroparesis). Stomach pain can also be a sign of diabetic ketoacidosis, a medical emergency that needs to be treated right away. Weight Loss Unintentional weight loss is an important sign, particularly in kids who are drinking and urinating often, that the blood sugars are elevated. Many children who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes lose weight prior to diagnosis. This usually occurs because the body is not able to use the sugar in the bloodstream for fuel. Mouth and Breathing Changes Nausea, vomiting, fruity breath, deep and rapid breathing, and loss of consciousness are indications that you need to seek emergency help. These symptoms can be warning signs of other diabetes-related conditions that can result in death if not treated immediately. Rare Symptoms Some more rare symptoms can occur in people with hyperglycemia, too. Numbness Nerve damage in the extremities (known as peripheral neuropathy) occurs over time and can present as numbness, tingling, or pain in the hands, feet, or legs. Skin Conditions Dry/itchy skin, wounds or cuts that are slow to heal, and acanthosis nigricans (thick, velvety patches found in the folds or creases of areas like the neck, indicative of insulin resistance) can be an indication of hyperglycemia. Frequent Yeast Infections and Erectile Dysfunction These are manifestations that affect women and men, respectively. Hyperglycemic Hyperosmolar Nonketotic Syndrome Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic coma (HHNKC) is an extremely serious complication which can happen in those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, but most often occurs in those who are non-insulin dependent (type 2 diabetes). HHNKC is characterized by a dangerously high blood sugar that is over 600 mg/dL and is typically brought on either by an infection such as pneumonia, a urinary tract infection, or inability to effectively manage your blood sugar. If left untreated, it can result in coma and even death. Signs and symptoms include: extreme thirst confusion fever (usually over 101 degrees Fahrenheit) weakness or paralysis on one side of the body The best way to prevent HHNKC is to take your medications as directed and to keep in contact with your healthcare team when your blood sugar is consistently over 300 mg/dL. Diabetic Ketoacidosis Hyperglycemia can lead to another very dangerous condition referred to as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), which occurs most commonly in people who have type 1 diabetes and is often the condition that leads to the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. DKA is caused when the body has little or no insulin to use and, as a result, blood sugars rise to dangerous levels and the blood becomes acidic. Cell damage can occur and if it continues to progress, it can cause coma or death. DKA needs immediate medical intervention—patients with DKA will need to be monitored by a medical professional and given intravenous fluids, electrolytes, and insulin. Complications Frequent and long-standing hyperglycemia can lead to a host of complications known as micro (small) and macro (large) vascular issues. They include damage to the: eye (retinopathy) kidney (nephropathy) peripheral and autonomic neuropathy (nerve loss in the feet and other areas of the body such as the intestine) Additionally, chronically elevated blood sugars can cause or exacerbate heart disease and peripheral arterial disease. During Pregnancy Hyperglycemia in pregnancy can be particularly damaging to the fetus and the mother. According to the American Diabetes Association, uncontrolled diabetes in pregnancy can pose risks such as spontaneous abortion, fetal anomalies, preeclampsia (uncontrolled blood pressure in mother), fetal demise, macrosomia (large baby), hypoglycemia in babies at birth, and neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, among others. In addition, diabetes in pregnancy may increase the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes in offspring later in life. In Children Hyperglycemia in children, especially when undiagnosed, can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes or ketoacidosis in those children who have type 1 diabetes. Those children with diabetes who have chronically elevated glucose levels are at increased risk for developing diabetes complications. When to See a Doctor If you don't feel like your usual self and think your blood sugar is elevated, test it to confirm. If your blood sugar happens to be elevated and it's an isolated event, odds are that you can probably get it back to normal on your own. Go for a walk or do some light exercise, drink extra water, and take your medicine as prescribed. On the other hand, if you are experiencing elevated blood sugars for several consecutive days, give your medical team a call, as you may need to tweak your treatment plan. If you don't have diabetes and notice any of these signs or symptoms, and are overweight or obese or have a family history of diabetes, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor to be screened. Microvascular complications of diabetes can occur prior to diagnosis, so the sooner you receive treatment, the better. For Parents of Children Without Diabetes If you've noticed that your child is drinking, eating, and urinating more often than usual, a trip to the doctor is a good idea, especially if you've seen a quick change in weight. If the symptoms appear to be more severe and resemble those of DKA (refer above), go to the emergency room right away. For Parents of Children With Diabetes If your child is presenting with hyperglycemia symptoms and their blood sugar is greater than 240 mg/dL, you should test them for ketones. Upon a positive test, call your medical team for guidance on what to do next or refer to your sick day plan. Depending on the severity of the ketones, you may be advised to go to the emergency room. Homeopathic remedies marketed to treat the symptoms of diabetes or prevent complications include: Syzygium jambolanum or S. cumini (black plum) is said to help treat thirst, weakness, skin ulcers, and excessive urination. Uranium nitricum is marketed to treat excessive urination, nausea, swelling, and burning with urination. Conium (hemlock) is purported to treat numbness in the feet and hands as well as diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). Plumbum (lead) is said to help with numbness in the hands and feet, nerve pain, and tinnitus. Calendula (marigold) is said to treat infected ulcers. Phosphoric acid is promoted to treat impaired memory, confusion or heavy head, frequent urination at night, hair loss, and difficulty maintaining an erection. Candida (yeast) is said to treat yeast infections.Dr. Rajesh Gupta8 Likes11 Answers
