Brief Answer: Follow Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that it doesnt matter whether you take it before or after the lemon water actually but if you will ask for my opinion first take the thyroid medication and then I will suggest you to wait for half an hour before taking your lemon water with honey . It will boost the absorption and will be good for you . Take care. Dr. Shruti

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, You should avoid some foods that are high in goitrogens include cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, turnips etc as they can cause thyroid dysfunction . You weight gain is due to thyroid dysfunction, as the functions will improve it will settle down gradually . Avoid fatty meals and cut down on sugar . Try to do exercise for half an hour at least 5 days a week . Dr. Shruti

I drink 5 cups of green tea everyday. But I just visited google & I saw the update that green tea increases thyroid. Is it true.
