Treatment Case Study for
Kudos to Priyanka, a 31-year-old woman who had been suffering from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) for the past 2 years. Unhealthy eating habits such as eating junk and street foods were part of her daily routine, and she did not regulate her portions. When she began experiencing health symptoms such as fatigue, sluggishness, dry skin and irregular periods, she immediately contacted Nirvasa and filled out the self-assessment form. The doctor analysed her profile and diagnosed Hypothyroidism based on her medical history and lifestyle behaviours. The doctor recommended a weight-loss regimen tailored to her specific goals. Her thyroid is now under control after six months of treatment, and her weight has dropped to 58kg.

- Priyanka diligently followed the prescribed regimen, which involved consuming a well-balanced diet rich in lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Portion control and regular meal timings were emphasized.
- She also incorporated targeted supplements to support thyroid function. After the initial three months, Priyanka started noticing positive changes. Her energy levels improved, and she experienced gradual weight loss. Her menstrual cycles became more regular, and she noticed improvements in her skin and hair health.
- By the end of the six-month treatment duration, Priyanka achieved her weight management goals, improved thyroid function, and enhanced overall well-being.
The valuable lesson that I learned is that one consultation can be enough to make you understand about your thyroid and give you the clear picture of what can happen if you follow the treatment plan along with lifestyle and dietary modifications. Now, I know the importance of timely meals, balanced diet, limiting smoking, and maintaining healthy body weight.
