welcome to heathcare magic,
from the test results you have written they are still abnormal, i would suggest you need to visit your physician to readjust your dosage of eltroxin to normalize your levels of thyriod hormone.
you can exercise regularly about 40mins in a day you can choose your favourite sport for it.
the foods to avoid or reduce their quantity include -
- red meat and oily foods
- foods rich in carbohydrates
- soy products
- limit brussel sprouts,cabbage, cauliflower,turnips,millet,cassava,broccoli intake it is said if cooked the effect reduces.
- limit caffeine and alcohol intake
hope to have answered your query

Dear Ranjan,

Generally no strict restrictions are required in your diet. But you could follow to limit a few below mentioned foods for a couple of hours before and after taking you medications. These are calcium products, caffiene and soy products. Refined flour is avoided due to weight issues.

You have not mentioned your height and weight, this will give me a better idea on your diet and exercise recommendation.

You can start with mild exercising such as walking, donot over strain you body with any heavy excercises. You can continue with your normal activities.

Take care
