Doctor:How can I help you?
User:Hi Doctor
User:I have hypothyroidism.
User:I have been on medication for the last 3 years or so.
User:The same is well within range for over a year now and I take medication properly.
User:I was going through the benefits of Ozonated water in journals a couple of days back.
User:I wanted to know whether I could opt for a glass of ozonated water on a daily basis or not.
User:Would it present any problems?
User:Would it have any complications pertaining to my hypothyroidism?
User:I am otherwise a normal person with good BMI ratio at the age of 40 with no other known ailments.
Doctor:There are no enough studies done on ozonated water to comprehensively suggest the benefits and side effects.
Doctor:However as per the current data available, it has no potential disadvantages.
Doctor:Therefore you can take it.
Doctor:It has not known to affect thyroid hormones or your thyroid medications.
Doctor:That being said, prefer to take your medicines on empty stomach atleast an hour before you take any form of water or food.
User:I have read that it could create problems if there are bromides present in water that is being oxidised.
User:I take RO filtered water - so that should be ok right?
User:Yes Doc, I do take my medicines at least 45 min before any food or drinks.
User:Doctor - I also wanted to know about Vitiligo....
Doctor:I am sorry, I am not the right expert who knows about filtration machines. Therefore I wouldn't be able to answer that question.
User:Sure Doctor.
Doctor:I am unsure if you would have bromides with RO filtered water
Doctor:you can check with the related authorities about that.
Doctor:You can proceed with your vitiligo question?
User:Sure Doctor.
User:Ok - actually my daughter who is only 6 yrs old is developing an initial lightening of skin under both her eyes....
User:It is a little lightening as of now but it can be seen.
User:I have read on the net that it is the normal and usual form of could be that.
User:Wanted to know - should I show that to any skin specialist?
User:Because the websites are saying that it doesn't have any real known treatments.
Doctor:From what I understand, your daughter has developed areas of lighten skin over the cheeks.
Doctor:And as you read, this may be vitiligo
User:Yes Doctor
Doctor:or it may be pytriasis XXXXXXX too.
Doctor:Or a form of infection
Doctor:Now, without a skin examination it is difficult to confirm what your daughter really has.
Doctor:If it's vitiligo, a steroid containing cream may be used to see if it improves.
Doctor:If that's pytriasis XXXXXXX it will resolve spontaneously.
User:ok sir in that case I need to show her to a skin specialist.
Doctor:And infection will need specific treatment.
Doctor:Therefore I would recommend you not to go by internet alone.
Doctor:Take her to a skin clinic.
User:ok doctor
