Hello,

Thanks for your query.

As per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this-

1) Do a clinical examination by your Doctor [Endocrinologist] and check your present TSH level and adjust the dose of medication for hypothyroidism.

2) Discuss with your treating Doctor about multivitamin with vitamin B6 supplements regularly. You can include Eggs, Fortified foods, such as breakfast cereals, Milk, cheese and yogurt, Red and white meats and shellfish etc., in your diets.

Do follow a few lifestyle modifications like this -

1) Avoid standing and sitting for long periods of time.

2) Prop up your feet when sitting to avoid swelling of the ankle.

3) Try to wear compression stockings.

4) Do exercise regularly and try to limit sodium.

Hope that helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
