Hi doctor, I am a hypothyroid's patient, having slow metabolic rate is one of the reason right? Please tell me How to increase my metabolism?

1 Doctor Answered
You are a hypothyroid patient which means you have less thyroid hormone than what is required and that is why you metabolism is low, because thyroid hormone maintains normal metabolism. By treating hypothyroidism effectively with thyroid hormone supplement therapy your metabolism will be corrected.
