Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism nearly 10 months ago. My TSH was over 100 during that time. Also, I had uric acid which was high. The doctor prescribed me to take Thyroxine tablet 50 mg daily and to increase it to 100 mg after one month. Also, uric acid medicine was given. I took that for a couple of months but slowly stopped both medicines. Instead, I am now taking 750 mg Ashwagandha and 400 mg Shilajeet daily. I got my TSH and uric acid tested recently and TSH comes to 12.0 and my uric acid is 447 (both results are still higher than normal). Can you guide me to a suitable Ayurveda medicine to bring thyroid and uric acid to a normal level?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and read the complaints carefully. It is not a big issue and can be managed through Ayurvedic medicines and yoga practices.

The Probable causes

Hormonal imbalance, metabolic disorders.

Investigations to be done

TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), uric acid, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

Treatment plan

You should take the following medicines regularly for one month and after one month you may revert back with investigation reports. Rx, 1. Kanchanar Guggulu one tablet (Kanchanar, Haritaki, Bibhitaka), Gandamala kandan rasa (Gokshura, Shuddha Guggulu, Pippali) one tablet after meals with lukewarm water. 2. Punarnavasava (Pippali, Shunti, Maricha) one tablespoon with an equal amount of water after meal twice a day. 3. Amla aloe vera juice two teaspoons daily in the morning.

Preventive measures

Avoid spicy and fried junk foods. Drink plenty of lukewarm water regularly. Avoid milk and milk products, egg and non-vegetarian foods, beans and protien rich food. Do regular Kapalbhati and Pranayam like anulom vilom nadi shodhana bhramari and specially ujjai.

Regarding follow up

Do these things and provide your valuable feedback after one month.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
