Hi there...I can understand your concern. Your TSH level of 5.26 is only slightly above normal level. You will need to get your t3 and t4 levels also checked to look for any other thyroid disorders. Also you might be required to repeat the test after 15 days to 1 month to confirm the disease. Sometimes thyroid disorders can lead to increased weight. But you can work through it. First and foremost you must understand losing your weight is a very gradual process. You should have strong determination and patience if you want to lose weight. And it cannot happen suddenly. Losing too much suddenly is also not good for health. You have to follow a strict diet and exercise schedule. Regarding diet - have small multiple meals instead of 3 big meals, eat food rich in proteins and fibres like egg white boiled chicken vegetables fruits pulses, avoid carbohydrate rich foods like rice curds oily foods sweets ghee and other junk food. Regarding exercises - start slowly with brisk walking, then change over to jogging, running and other abdominal exercises. Never over strain yourself. And always keep yourself well hydrated and enjoy whatever you do. Also consult a dietician at any hospital who will be able to give you a proper chart regarding the same
