Can I have carrot and beetroot when I have hypothyroid and taking thyroxine 50 daily? My skin became very dry will it be normal if my TSH level comes to normal?

1 Doctor Answered
Ikshaji, hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.
