My wife has Hypothyroidism, She takes 75 mg/day of thyroxin. Although her thyroid is in control her weight is above the scale. She is 5'5 and 85 kilos after the baby. During the pregnancy she has increased 10 kilos and the weight is not decreased after her delivery. In recent times we are hearing about the product called Herbalife for weight management. Can she take Herbalife products?

With my regular internet research, i find Herbalife product has ISOLATED SOY PROTEIN which increases ISOFLAVONES in the body which means ESTROGEN DOMINANCE which affects the BALANCE in the harmones.

As a Lehman i found this. I need some professional guidance. As an Endocrinologist please give your thoughts on this. Thanks....

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its safe but one should focus on diet and excercise. Modified atkin diet and brisk walk for half an hour is the best way to lose weight.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
