Hello jaikumar,

Welcome to heathcaremagic forum. Hyeprthyroidism is an increased fuctioning of thyroid gland. It increases your metabolic rate more than normal. the result of the diaorrhea and your hair loss. it makes your skin and mucous membranes dry and you lose weight. it even affects your bones in your case it's good that you have started medication. however I would advise you to go for ahomoepathic treatment as it is safe and the cure will be complete.

Take a lot of fruits and vegetables. also avoid cabbage and cauliflower these are a not advisable for thyroid patients.

You can take seafood like fish and leafy vegetables because they contain iodine and please take iodised salt. however dont take too much salt.
