Thyroidectomy is a surgical technique used to treat cancer, noncancerous thyroid enlargement, goiter, and hyperthyroidism. It is a procedure to remove all or sections of the thyroid gland. Most importantly, some common complications are often observed, like weight gain, loss of libido, and vocal cord paresis or paralysis after thyroidectomy. After surgery, diabetic patients are more prone to comorbidities such as kidney disease, eyes health issues, hypertension, obesity, etc. This study highlighted the probable diet and essential home-based nutrition for post thyroidectomy complications. Weight gain is the common complaint of most patients who underwent surgery. Currently, there are insufficient data that do not provide clear conclusions about post-surgery diet plan. However, low carbohydrate, low fat but high veg-protein-rich diet are altogether helpful for weight loss, diabetes, and related complication. More research is needed in the medical nutrition therapies segment to get more dietary options for such patients.

Keywords: Thyroidectomy diet, Weight gain, Thyroidectomy complications, Vocal cord paresis, Medical nutrition therapy.
