overactive thyriod and diet
Hello doc
Happy new year and all the best for whatever you do.
I have a overactive thyriod and started on bioslim(I know you hate slimming pills), but what I would like to know is that can I take the spirulina that is provided inside?
If I only eat Special K in the morning, raw carrots at tea time, mixed vegitables and fruit at lunch, more raw carrots in mid afternoon and real food at night (before 8), will the bioslim together with this work for me, will the thyriod interfere.
Thanks for alway responding to all my questions.

Dear Tarien
Happy New Year to you too. If you have an overactive thyroid then you should not really be overweight? as most patients with this condition lose masses of weight (one of the primary symptoms). The diet you outline should cause weight loss even if you don't take the bioslim! I don't think Spirulina will affect your thyroid, but just check on the label if it contains any iodine. If it does, then don't take it as this will stimulate your thyroid some more.
Good luck
