Abstract

Objectives - TSH becomes elevated despite the fact that the T4 and T3 should still be at intervals the normal vary. TSH are adequate to stay the conventional endocrine gland functioning properly. This aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of 8 weeks of fitness training and nutritional psychological counseling on the tension, depression, T3, T4 and TSH in middle aged ladies with hypothyroidism. Materials and Methods – To fulfill the aim of the  study, completely 65 hypothyroid middle aged ladies subjects were willing to participate, however the investigator has chosen solely 45 subjects who were enough to undergo the experimental training, They were hand-picked from the organization of Thyroid Care Centers, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu,India. They were clinically and bio -chemicals confirmed, cases of hypothyroid disease and their age ranged between forty and fifty years. The subjects with other complications of thyroidism were excluded. Solely the thyroid disease subjects were willing to participate within the experimental study were enclosed during this study. The study was developed as a real cluster style consisting of pretest and post test. The subjects (N=15) were randomly assigned to three equal groups of fifteen among middle aged women with hypothyroidism- the experimental group I, experimental group II and control group respectively. Pre test was conducted for all the 45 subjects on selected health related fitness and psychology and biochemical variables. Blood samples were collected after 8 weeks training first in order to evaluate tension, depression, T3, T4, and TSH the pre test and post test scores were subjected to applied statistically analysis of variance (ANCOVA) to seek out the importance among the mean variations, whenever the ‘F’ radio for adjusted test was found to be significant. Altogether cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypotheses. Results – The tension and depression confusion were significantly improved by both forms of experimental groups namely the fitness training programme and nutritional counseling with psychological counseling and fitness training programme and nutritional counseling without psychological counseling group among middle aged ladies with hypothyroidism. There was no significant improvement in the selected biochemical variables such as T3, T4 due to both forms of experimental groups among middle aged women with hypothyroidism. Conclusion - The fitness training programme and nutritional counseling with psychological counseling recommended as complementary therapy for middle aged ladies hypothyroidism.
