Hello and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You have thyroid problems and you have gone through partial thyroidectomy. Now you have weight gain. That my be due to uncontrolled hypothyroidism. You need to check T3, T4 and TSH level and set the dosage of thyroid supplements accordingly.

You can take oxyelite pro along with your thyroid medicine. There is no harm in that. Its just nutritional supplements.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer.

Regards,
Dr Hardik Sanghvi
