Tips to Become Thyroid Smart

Tips to Become Thyroid Smart

Hypothyroidism is a medical condition characterized by an inadequate production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland, leading to impaired bodily functions. Its symptoms generally include unnecessary weight gain, fatigue, hair fall, constipation, dry skin, swelling on the face/feet, irregular menstruation, difficulty in conceiving.
Your thyroid medications can help maintain your thyroid hormone balance.


  • 1. Keep your thyroid medicines with you, so that you can see them as soon as you wake up in the morning. Like near your bed, near your clock.
  • 2. Visit your doctor regularly as per his advice.
  • 3. Thyroid disorders run in families. If any of your family members, friends, relatives are suffering from symptoms of thyroid disorder, then ask them to immediately consult a doctor.
  • 4. If you are pregnant or thinking of pregnancy and are taking thyroid medicines, then consult a doctor about this.
  • 5. If you are suffering from heart disease then definitely tell your doctor.
  • 6. However, diet has no effect on hypothyroidism. But a healthy diet can be helpful for your health.
  • 7.  Whole grains (wheat, rice, corn), fruits (apple, orange, grapes), dark green vegetables, sea food (fish) - these contain iodine which helps in hypothyroidism.
  • 8. Use healthy edible oils (e.g. olive oil, vegetable oil)


  • 1. Please do not forget to take your daily dose of thyroid medicines. If you fail to take a dose, seek advice from your doctor.
  • 2. Do not take your thyroid medicines with tea and breakfast. This may affect the absorption of your thyroid medicines. Your thyroid medications should be taken on an empty stomach 30-60 minutes before breakfast/morning beverage.
  • 3. If you are also taking other medicines, do not forget to tell your doctor. Some medications may interfere with your thyroid medications.
  • 4. Do not stop taking thyroid medicines without asking your doctor.
  • 5. Do not change the brand and dosage of thyroid medicines without asking your doctor.
  • 6. Silica gel inside the bottle is for protection from moisture. Don't eat it. Leave it in the bottle.
