Diet and exercise are beneficial in general, but exercise and diet will not help you in hypothyroidism- to control or cure it Your thyroid gland may be tiny, but it plays a big role in how well your body functions. That's because the thyroid produces a hormone that regulates your metabolism, the process that converts what you eat and drink to energy. When you have hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, your metabolism slows, causing you to gain weight more easily and feel sluggish and fatigued. Too little thyroid hormone also can mean too much bad fat, or LDL cholesterol, in your bloodstream. The thyroid hormone helps the liver break down the cholesterol circulating in your blood and stimulates other enzymes needed to rid your body of triglycerides, another type of blood fat. When you don't have enough thyroid hormone, your LDL and triglycerides can rise. "The most important thing you can do for hypothyroidism is to see your doctor and get on the right dose of thyroid hormone, Regular exercise is an important part of your overall strategy to manage many hypothyroidism symptoms. Exercise burns calories to prevent weight gain and can counter the effects of your sluggish metabolism. A good workout can also be a mood-booster — while you exercise, your body releases endorphins and other mood-enhancing chemicals.
