Is it good to eat soya chunks frequently ie 2times a week? I have pco's and hyperthyroidism.

Soya chunks: I can't think of a reason you should not eat soya chunks twice a week. I am more concerned that you are reporting that you have hyperthyroidism. Surely by now your doctor (preferably an Endocrinologist) has controlled your hyperthyroidism. Please let me know.

Is the fact that around 40 mins after I eat a meal my Hyperthyroidism symptoms kick in make sense? Is this normal?

Post meal: If you have hyperthyroidism, it should be treated. However, it is normal to get some degree of sweating, rapid heart beat after a meal as you digest your food and divert blood to your stomach.

I lift heavy and eat 6x day, 4 awhile. Is there any way to gain weight Wo implants for someone who's underweight. Hyperthyroid?

I lift heavy and eat 6x day, 4 awhile. Is there any way to gain weight Wo implants for someone who's underweight. Hyperthyroid?

What implants?: Gaining weight is opposite of losing weight, right? For former, plan on consuming 500kcal/d more than you burn off. You should consult Nutritionist to determine if you're getting enough healthy calories. Despite eating 6x/d, you might not be consuming enough, depending upon what you expend lifting heavy. Also check w/your Family Doc to make sure you're not hyperthyroid. Http://goo. Gl/6CkJXy re BMI

My girlfriend has hyperthyroidism, I eat regularly but in still feeling exhausted. Any tricks?

Girlfriend or you: I'm not sure if your question is about your girlfriend's hyperthyroidism or your exhaustion. Exhaustion can be due to thyroid condition, but there are also many other causes of exhaustion including poor sleep patterns, stress, anemia, depression, etc, etc. See your Physician if this persists.

My potasium fr blood test 3.4 n I have subclinical hyperthyroid what can I eat beside banana for my pottasium level?

Stop worrying: If your physician is not concerned about your potassium level, and you are not on any diuretic and are not having diarrhea, I would ignore this just-slightly-lowish serum potassium. "normal ranges" are set so that several percent of otherwise-healthy people fall just outside. As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to lab medicine, I always tell people, "look at the person, not the numbers".

Sick 1x a month. Cough, cold, yellow phlegm. Daily probiotics, vitamin C 2000 mg, exercise 2x a wk, sleep, eat well. Hyperthyroidism now normal. Help.

Sick 1x a month. Cough, cold, yellow phlegm. Daily probiotics, vitamin C 2000 mg, exercise 2x a wk, sleep, eat well. Hyperthyroidism now normal. Help.

Time to see the doc: You are doing so much right! But a month-long productive cough suggests to me it is time to have a doctor listen to your lungs, check your sinuses, perhaps analyze the phlegm. Hang in there.
