Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. At your age and height, ideal body weight should be 72 kgs. Similarly ideal BMI should be < 23 kgs/M2. Your cirrent BMI is 37.64 kgs, which is closer to grade 3 obesity. By saying that you have thyroid are you talking about hypothyroidism? If so what is the TSH level? Because if TSH is not well controlled (3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to reduce weight also do not give results. To reduce weight, apart from achieving strict control of hypothyroidism, you will have take restricted diet and exercise regularly. Thanks.
