Can we take whey protien in hypothyroidism for weight loss? Can a hypothyroid patient have a lean physique?

1 Doctor Answered
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if not well controlled (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then there is a definite weight gain. Therefore, primary need is to achieve a strict TSH level control, by taking adequate amount of Levothyroxine per day. Once you are able to control hypothyroidism then it is possible to loose weight and maintain a lean body. Thanks.
