هل بإمكان زيت جوز الهند علاج قصور الغدة الدرقية؟

إجابة من تود بي نيبولتد، (دكتور في الطب)

لا. هناك زعم بأن زيت جوز الهند يساعد في الكثير من الحالات الطبية الصحية، بما في ذلك قصور الغدة الدرقية ونزول الوزن وأمراض القلب ومرض ألزهايمر. لكن لا توجد أدلة كثيرة أو لا توجد أدلة على الإطلاق تدعم أيًا من هذه المزاعم.

إذا ظهرت عليك أي علامات أو أعراض لقصور الغدة الدرقية — مثل زيادة الحساسية للبرد، وزيادة الوزن أو التعب بلا سبب واضح — فاستشر الطبيب. يمكن أن يختبر وظيفة الغدة الدرقية لديك. يمكنهم عند الضرورة التوصية بالعلاج الملائم، والذي قد يشمل علاج هرمون الغدة الدرقية.

إذا كنت قد تم تشخيصك بالفعل بقصور في الغدة الدرقية، فمن المهم أن تأخذ الهرمون الدرقي البديل (ليفوثيروكسين) حسب توجيه طبيبك. لا يوجد علاج للقصور في الغدة الدرقية. إلا أنه يمكن التعامل مع الحالة بنجاح باستخدام الليفوثيروكسين (Synthroid وLevo-T وغيرهما)
