THYROID DISORDER IN THALASSEMIA MAJOR PATIENTS

Posted by Goh Chun Hui on September 3, 2010 at 6:50 AM



I had notice many Thalassemia Major Patients do have this Thyroid Disorder problem, infact me myself is one of them. I was first diagnosed about few years ago, after my dad had passed away from cancer. I am of course sad, depressed for at least 1-2 months. Later my doctor run some blood test and diagnosed I do have underactive Thyroid disorder (Hypothyroidism). The doctor then prescribe me with Thyroxine Sodium Tablet 50mg at that time and slowly after time increase the dosage of it. Now it's stable, I am having 100mg tablet once every morning. Every 6 months, I will be visiting my Endocrinology doctor. The doctor usually prescribe some Free T4 and TSH blood test to be done at least 3 days before visit to the doctor. If you taking any medication prescribe by your doctor, do always remember to take then on time, try not to miss any dose if it. That's it for this blog spot, hope you enjoy it (:
