STOP SMOKING -smoke has toxins like Thiocyanate and nicotine. They disrupts iodine uptake and can block the production of thyroid hormones. Smoking can increase thyroxine (T4) levels and decrease in (TSH) levels leading to Hyperthyroidism /Graves’ disease and Graves Ophthalmopathy and can cause optic nerve damage. Smoking affects the deiodinase enzyme. Try to stop Smoking
Do the Thyroid Neck Check – A glass of water and a mirror can help in detecting lumps and swelling of thyroid if they’re close to the surface. Many nodules aren’t able to be seen or felt, so if you have other symptoms.
Stay away from starvation diet – 53 percent reduction in serum T3 levels and a 58 percent increase in reverse T3 (RT3) levels, which block thyroid hormone. Starvation increase in cortisol (stress hormone).
