Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone.
The effects of this disorder could be lifelong if not treated effectively. Such as low metabolism, low
immunity, depression, sudden weight gain, osteoporosis and constipation.
Poor metabolism and increased weight leads to other health consequences like diabetes, elevated cholesterol levels or PCOD.
Hypothyroidism can be managed by effective meal planning for required calorie intake. For this, detailed knowledge about a person’s activities and eating habits is important.
