Thanks for posting query here,

Your husband is suffering from hypothyroidism which is confirmed by high TSH level 33 m IU/ml.
He is also overweight according to his height, although in case of hypothyroidism he may be having swelling all over body. I expect this to improve with treatment by thyronorm.

He should take normal diet with iodized salt; he should reduce calories and fats from diet to lose some weight and take fruits and vegetables approximately 1600 K cal/day and simultaneously start exercising like walking 2-3 km per day to help in weight loss.
He should also increase water intake to at least 2 to 2.5 lit/day, and reduce work stress as far as possible.

Hope this information helps you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to answer that.

With Regards
Dr. Akhilesh Dubey M.D.
