Our expert says:
Because Simply Slim contains L-carnitine which suppresses thyroid function (and thus also the effectiveness of your thyroid hormone replacement therapy), you should rather not use this type of slimming product. I would recommend that you discuss the use of other slimming product such as Ciplatrim or Reductil or Xenical with the dr who is treating your lack of thyroid hormone. As an alternative you can also try using an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more min a day. The exercise will help to stimulate your metabolism and promote weightloss.
