Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in. Thyroid problems are pretty straight forward and simple to treat. We need to know what kind of thyroud problem is she diagn9sed with - hypothyroid, hyperthyroid state or multi nodular goitre. Treatment depends on the type of problem. I suggest you see an endocrinologist in person. You can take my apppointment at Mallya Hospital (080-0000 ext 1580). I can assure you that whatever problem she has can be effectively treated and there is nothing to worry about. Hope this helps
