Hi There,

Good to hear from you :)

Yes thyroid is a prominent reason why people tend to suffer from weight loss.First thing would be to visit a dermatologist and get the appropriate prescription for the same.Meanwhile you can make few changes in the diet.
1)Consume greens and fruits more.
2) Drink at least 12-15glasses of water per day.
3)Include nuts like walnuts,almond and pistachios in the diet.
4)Get enough of protein from protein sources like egg,chicken,yoghurt,milk and paneer.
