Welcome to HCM,

As you are saying Your cousin has thyroid problem ,which most probably could be hypothyroidsm, this disease is associated with weight gain.

I advise you to get her thyroid profile regularly checked till she becomes euthyroid and to take her thyroid supplements regularly as prescribed by the doctor.

She may reduce her weight once her thyroid profile comes to normal.

Till then she can follow diet regimes like avoiding fat, carbohydrates rich food, junk food and tell her to take fresh vegetables, fruits.Regular exercises will also help her

Welcome to HCM

Your cousin is having two health related isseues one is Hypothyroidism which is clinical or subclinical confirmed by High level of TSH value and other tests about which you have not given any information. But if advised supplimentation of hormone take it and be in constat follow up.

Hypothyroid state needs investigations related to Autoimmunity like AMA( Microsomal antibody) Anti -throglobulin antibodies are present.

Another is being Overweight and Obese which is related with intake of calorie rich food and lack of physical exercises.also genetics are important.

One should find out ideal weight according to height and plan to exercise regularly and reduction in high fat and high carbohydrate diet will result in significant weightloss.

Take the help of Dietician and Gym Trainer or join some out door sport.

To some extent a Yoga can help.

Good luck
