Dear Prasun,

I can see you are genuinely concerned about your mother. Her TSH is still on the higher side (suggesting that she is still hypothyroid). Because she is becoming breathless while climbing stars, another problem she could be suffering from is CHF (congestive heart failure), which can get precipitated because of hypothyroidism. It is very important that you get her cardiac status evaluated by a cardiologist asap.

As far as food is concerned, there are no particular restrictions. Just make sure she does not consume a lot of fatty and fried food. This can worsen her cardiac condition, if she has one.

What is her age?

Hope she gets well soon.
