My wife having thyroid problem, which is detected 1 month back. She is 29 years old with no children. Now she is facing menstruation cycle problem. My family Dr. suggested for the following leb test which is written below with results.
UPPER G.I. ENDOSCOPY-

A. OESOPHAGUS:- Gastro-esophageal junction at 37 cms. from incisors.Mucosa normal over upper+middle third;mucosa hyperaemic towards lower end upto 4cm from GE junction;No ulcer,hiatus or varix seen.Lower esophageal sphincter(LES)incompetent.

Hematology-Mild hypochromis and microcytic platelet-----adequate.
U.S.G. T.V.S.-Bilateral P.C>O. with nebothian folicles.
Medicines advised by Dr.- Eltroxin(50)
Sir, plz tell me that Is medicine advised by my Dr. adequate? Will be any problem in pregnancy? When we should plan for a child? Any affect of this will lead for coming child? What is the normal range of T4 & TSH?
it appears she has hypothyroidism - normal TSH is usually under 4. We often repeat TSH in six weeks to confirm hypothyroid before committing to treatment. Would consider testing thyroid antibodies to confirm that this is hashimotos. the 50mcg start dose is reasonable.
thyroid does not explain the whole picture. she also appears to have PCOS with insulin resistance and the elevated TG of 8000 is severe and the elevated SGOT-SGPT at one point suggest fatty inflitrate of the liver which is consistent with this. This (PCOS) is likely the main cause of the menstrual problems and may decrease fertility.
would suggest an endocrine consult to confirm these thoughts and focus on treatment options of PCOS-insulin resistance syndrome.
