Hi Jeannine,

If your thyroid profile is normal, please wait and watch. You need to repeat your thyroid profile again after 3 months to ensure there is no variations in the hormonal levels. Normal level of thyroid hormones will not cause any hindrance to the weigh loss. Please do not go for thyroid booster tabs. Consult your endocrinologist/physician /ENT specialist after 3 months they will guide you appropriately.
