If you think that your nutritional requirements will be met with supplements and that supplements contain everything that is needed, then you are hugely mistake. Natural healthy diet is the best method and the supplements are to be used only if you have a proven deficiency. The word supplement means that it is a booster to the existing regimen. Hence, diet is and should always be the primary source of nutrition.

You should make up your Ca with dairy products preferably Yoghurt; and if you are not Anemic then do not take iron supplements for months together ;Take Iron-rich diet like if you are Non-veg. Take white meat ,green vegetables. Colored fruits; eggs,legumes and pulses; take direct sugar in moderation; the food should be prepared in low fat peferably rice-bran oil, Try to take most of food boiled or steamed, not fried or deep fried ;Do BRISK walk for 30-40 mts a day continuous or divided in morning-evening ;Always take food items with low glycemic-index (Void direct sugar, very sweet fruits, sweet potato; Re-adjust your dose of Thyronrom according to the latest TSH level may be you are taking a low dose of thyronorm
