Hello XXXXXXX and thanks foe writing in

It is very difficult for Thyroid patient to lose weight but not impossible. Let me suggest you some useful tips both to treat hypothyroidism and reduce weight.

Following a healthy, well-balanced diet is a great starting point for hypothyroidism patients who choose to lose weight.

1. Certain foods like carrots, spinach, olive oil, avocados, asparagus, whole-grain cereals, bananas and oily fish are helpful in improving thyroid functions and metabolism. When planning meals, be sure to regularly include these foods.
2. Foods that interfere with iodine uptake must be avoided. These are cabbage, broccoli, sweet potatoes, lima beans and soy products.
3. Cold drinks, sodas, etc., contain caffeine affects thyroid function, so they should be avoided.
4. Exercise for about 45 minutes per day is sufficient and helps in reducing weight and stress.
5. Stress is thought to be a contributing factor for people who develop hypothyroidism. Avoid stress as much as you can.
6. Finally it all just depends on how many calories you consume. It is the calories which results in weight gain. Take calories according to your weight (about 1900 calories per day). Burn your calories to reduce weight by regular exercises.

You can calculate the amount of calories present in the food by using the internet and make your own diet chart according to that and your taste. You can know by this that how much you can take and how much you have to burn by exercise.

Hope this will help you. Write if you have any follow up query.

Best Wishes

Hello and thanks for writing again
Yes banana adds up to weight if used daily with milk and in large quantity. Also I have written banana because it helps in improving thyroid functions. Banana has more calories so you can reduce calories in other products you have to take rest of day.

You are following a good diet cart but make sure that you include every minerals and vitamins in it. Continue with honey it helps in reducing weight. More importantly you have to control your Thyroid function, abnormal Thyroid Function Test cause gradual weight gain as you are experiencing it in past few months.

Hello there
Yellow banana is good. As per I know lady finger is known to be good in previous studies but now it is in the list of vegetables to be avoided. As per the beans are concern except XXXXXXX beans all other has to be avoided. If you have read about these vegetables recently please let me know.

I had vestibular battery test that came back abnormal. Interpretation: This is an abormal vestibular test battery dueto upbeat nystagmus throughout, reaching 7 d/s. This may suggest central localization of pathology. There is no evidence of peripheral vestibular abnormality. Clinical correlation is advised. I met with a neurologist and the Associate Diagnosis is Nystagmus. Ordering Comments: Abnormal ENG. Exam unremarkable except for mild dysdiadochokinesis bilaterally. Evaluate for brainstem/cerebellar lesion. I am having an MRI WWO contrast on Friday. She doesn t seem concerned at all, almost like I manipulated the test results. Is this possible? I used to be a heavy drinker for years but stopped about two months ago. I have been smoking pot and told her this. I know alcohol can effect the test, but what about cannibis? I didn t smoke right before either appointment. I ve been pretty sick for almost a year now and haven t been able to work. (pneumonia in October, C-Diff in the spring, continued nausea and now super constipated, loss of appetite and unintentional weight loss (dropped 4 sizes yet I look 9 months pregnant. Pelvic ultrasound and TVU was normal). I am also being treated for depression with Effexor XR, have RLS & PLMS (RLS for over 30 years), no longer have a thryoid (had the radio iodine about 13 years ago) and had a parathyroidectomy this past March. My husband thinks my physical is caused by my depression, which I know is possible. I also know it could be thryoid related (my TSH on 8.09.12 was 0.13) as well as brain lesions and even MS. My GI dr. feels it is neurological. My main question is could my two test results have in any way have been unintentionally manipulated by me to get the abnormal results? And is MS a real possibility? I can deal with anything...just not knowing and started to feel my husband is correct and that it is in my head. Thank you

I have a nodule on my neck for a few days now . My doctor think it could be my thyroid . She gave me a prescription for a CT scan with contrast . Wouldn't the contrast affect my thyroid even more since it has iodine ?
