Question
i've got a problem with lithium induced hypothyroidism dr. kulkarni.  i think i have hypothyroidism due to lithium.  my question is what type of diet do you do with this condition because i have most of the symptoms, one of them being weight gain?

Answer
Hello Christopher!
Warm welcome to you!
Even if the reason for your under active thyroid is lithium administration, the diet to be followed is the same as we suggest in any other hypothyroid condition. So please send your age, height and current weight. Then I will be able to guide you!

Thanking you!

Have a great day. Bye.
