Suggest Treatment For Weight Gain, Coldness And Constipation
Having memory problems - using the wrong words when speaking.
Gaining weight weekly - even when watching calorie intake, eating healthy. 1 pound to 1/2 pound weekly for months.
Disrupted sleep. Waking up nightly 2 or 3 times.
Hands and feet feel swollen when waking up and I wake up with tingly feet and hands.
Drinking more than a liter of water and I have puffy eyes.
Most likely Hypothyroidism
Welcome to health care magic.
Your problems with memory, dry skin, constipation, excessive cold and swelling over body with weight gain can be best explained by hypothyroidism. Other possibility of renal dysfunction or other cause of generalised body swelling is to be ruled out. You need to get blood investigations done.
I will suggest you to plan for investigations like
1) T3, T4, TSH
2) Liver function test (including protein and albumin)
3) Renal function test
4) Hemoglobin levels
5) ECG and 2D ECHO( if breathlessness on exertion)
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me with all reports.
