Dear Brain Fog
If you suffer from hypothyroidism then it is essential that you use a thyroid hormone replacement like Eltroxin and stick to the instructions of the prescribing dr. It is also a good idea to have your thyroid levels checked regularly to see if you are taking enough Eltroxin or if your dose needs to be adjusted. It can take up to 3 months for thyroid hormone levels to stabilise. From a dietary point of view you can use a low-fat, energy-reduce balanced diet (click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet) to assist with weightloss. Also try to be as active as possible ideally doing 30 min of aerobic exercise a day like skipping, cycling or brisk walking to stimulate your sluggish metabolism.
