What is hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism means your thyroid gland is producing less thyroid hormone that required by your body. So you will have low FT3/Total T3 and FT4/Total T4 and high TSH.
Types of hypothyroidism
Depending upon the extent of increase or decrease in hormones it can be of two types.
1. Overt hypothyroidism – When TSH is very high or raised TSH is associated with low thyroid hormone levels.
2. Subclinical hypothyroidism – TSH is mildly raised with normal thyroid hormone levels.

What is pre-diabetes?
‪#‎Prediabetes‬ is a condition where your blood sugars are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. It includes impaired fasting glucose (that is only fasting blood sugar is on higher side), impaired glucose tolerance (that is post glucose blood sugar is higher than normal) or increased glycosylated ‪#‎haemoglobin‬( a test that gives you the blood sugar status for past 3 months).
Due to increased awareness among patients, more and more people are now being diagnosed as having pre diabetes.

What Is the ‪#‎EndocrineSystem‬?
Although we rarely think about the endocrine system, it influences almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies. The endocrine system plays a role in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, and sexual function and reproductive processes.

#‎DiagnosingGrowthRetardation‬
IUGR is usually diagnosed during a standard screening ultrasound. Ultrasounds use sound waves to check the development of the baby and your uterus. If your baby is smaller than usual, the doctor may suspect IUGR.
A smaller than normal fetus may be no cause for concern in early pregnancy. Many women are unsure of their last menstrual period. Therefore, the baby’s gestational age may not be accurate. A baby may appear to be small when it is actually the correct size.
When IUGR is suspected in early ‪#‎pregnancy‬, your doctor will monitor the baby’s growth through regular ultrasounds. If the baby fails to grow properly, the doctor may diagnose IUGR.
An amniocentesis test may be suggested if the doctor suspects IUGR. For this test, the doctor will insert a long, hollow needle through your abdomen into the amniotic sac. Then the doctor takes a sample of the fluid. This sample is tested for signs of abnormalities.

Is ‪#‎GrowthRetardationTreatable‬?
Depending on the cause, IUGR may be reversible.
Before offering treatment, your doctor may monitor the baby using:
‪#‎ultrasound‬ —to see how your baby’s organs are developing and check for normal movements
‪#‎heartratemonitoring‬ —to be certain the baby’s heart rate increases as it moves
‪#‎dopplerflowstudies‬ —to make certain that the baby’s blood is flowing properly
Treatment will focus on addressing the underlying cause of IUGR. Depending on the cause, one of the following treatment options may be useful:
Increasing Your Nutrient Intake
This ensures that your baby is getting adequate food. If you have not been eating enough, your baby may not have enough nutrients to grow.
Bed Rest
You may be put on bed rest to help improve the baby’s circulation.
Induced Delivery
In severe cases, an early delivery may be necessary. This allows the doctors to intervene before damage caused by IUGR gets worse. Induced delivery is usually only necessary if the baby has stopped growing entirely or has serious medical problems. In general, doctors prefer to allow the baby to grow for as long as possible before delivery.
