Synthroid and hcg

Common Questions and Answers about Synthroid and hcg


Avatar f tn Anyways back to my point... I am not expecting to lose weight by just taking Synthroid and continuing my healthy eating and workout routines.So I was looking into HCG... Has anyone else tried this? Have there been any issues anyone knows of?
Avatar n tn I was able to stabilize my thyroid condition over several months on the Blood Type diet and with the help of my ND, after I was stable then I did the HCG drops and lost 40 + pounds in 40 days on the first round. What is your TSH and FT3, FT4 at your last labs? that would be a factor in your decision Do you have Hasimotos? If you go on HCG now without first stabilizing your diet you might experience some swings with your synthroid that could be hard to predict.
Avatar f tn ) I get to meet some very happy people who feel so much better, more energetic, and lighter (of course) since starting the hcg protocol. I would recommend you do your research on it and find a clinic with a good doctor who is willing to help you through it. That way if you have any medical concerns, you are not by yourself. Find out where your hcg is coming from, and if any side effects occur, talk to your doctor.
Avatar f tn Hi I am starting the HCG Protocol with Homeopathic drops. I am on metformin and synthroid...should I continue on these meds during the protocol or should I go off them? Let me know, thanks.
Avatar f tn I have had hypothyroidism for a couple of years and that is where I gained all my weight which I cant seem to shake off and was wondering if anyone else on here has hypothyroidism and also did the HCG shots and how they worked for you?
Avatar n tn I take 90mg of armour for my thyroid and take 3cc HCG injection daily and have no problems. I do not follow KY diet though. I eat low cal, low fat, and watch my portions. I try to stay under 1200 calories. I have lost 4.25lbs in a little over a week.
Avatar f tn First, I know I might be posting this in the worng place, but you ladies are very helpful. I went to have a check-up and found out that my HCG was 88 on 3/8/07 and that my TSH was less than .01 (which is low). I'm a Medical Technologist and know that this means if TSH is low than your thyroid is overreactive and if high than it is hypothyroid (under active). The NP told me that the two hormones interact with one another.
Avatar f tn My thyroid levels have just been normal (if there is a normal) for about the last year. Can I safely get on the HCG diet and take the injections or the sublingual form of it without jeopardizing my thyroid levels?
Avatar f tn Why are you "off and on" synthroid? Are you hypothyroid or are you using it to lose weight? I'm not real familiar with HCG, however, I know it's used for rapid weight loss, along with a very strict 500 calorie/day diet. You might try asking your question about it on the Weight Loss Alternatives forum, as I know there are a lot of people there who do/have used it.
Avatar f tn Hi, My friend was telling me about HCG and that it can make you lose weight and tone up your body along with exercising. I have no or low thyroid. I am taking synthroid. I am also taking birth control and trazadone for sleeping. I have a hard staying a sleep at night. Esp when my husband snores all night. I am 49 and I do see a dr on a regular basis to monitor my thyroid condition. I do not know alot about HCG. Will this effect my thyroid? Should I continue taking all my meds.?
Avatar f tn I haven't started the hcg yet but it's ordered and I am just waiting for the delivery. I was wondering how other people with thyroid issues did taking the injections regarding their weight loss. I know in the book it said to quit using your thyroid meds (and the others) while on hcg, but I'd hate to do that without consulting your doctor first. I took myself off of Synthroid a month or so ago just because I felt like it was causing me to gain massive amounts of weight overnight.
Avatar f tn I'm a 41 year old black female who needs to lose 25-30 pounds within the next 5 weeks. I would like to start taking the oral HCG. I had bloodwork taken on 4/18/09 and the results that concerned me were as the following: My SGPT/ALT (13), CHOLESTEROL (212), LDL (145.8), HEMOGLOBIN (11.8), MCH (25.0), MCHC (31.82), RDW (15.24), MPV (6.1). I wanted to know with these blood results what would be your reccommendation for starting the HCG program and moving forward.
Avatar n tn I have been reading alot on the site and am very interested in the HCg injections. I am closest to the Dr in Huntersville, Statesville. Does anyone know the affects with this type of diet and injections in someone who has a Thyroid condition. I am on a Synthroid medication at a low dosage. Would I still be accepted on the plan. I have taken the Phentermine before, prescribed by my family physician, but had not heard of this combination or of the plan until recently. I have lost apprx.
Avatar n tn I've been reading those threads related to the hCG shots for weight loss subject, and I suspect that once again (as it happened in 1974) the method will be misused by all those who only wish to grab a commercial profit from its use. Please let me remind you again, and again, and again, that hCG is a PRESCRIPTION drug that MUST be dispensed by a licensed Physician. hCG injections are PART of a comprehensive weight reduction program.
Avatar f tn I started the oral HCG a month ago and lost 13 lbs. I stopped losing the last week and decided to try another mont (at a total cost of $1,450 dollars) I am fanatic in sticking to Simeon's very restrictive and boring diet. Are the injections more effective than the oral? Has the cost been more than anyone else has paid. I am desparate to lose the last 10lbs to reach a weight of 135 on my 5' 2in frame..
Avatar f tn While the T4 hormone is identical in both Levo and synthroid, the fillers and buffers used may be different. And you may have had a reaction to that. Three alternatives remain. 1) Tirosint - this is a hypo allergenic T4 med that is in a gel cap.
Avatar f tn I started with Levothyroxine, but didn't see much improvement in my symptoms over 6 months and switched to Synthroid. It's been 3 years now and I'm not sure what to do. I haven't lost anything and I've tried almost everything. I feel unmotivated and depressed. I am still tired a lot and lack motivation to do anything. I constantly have a heavy feeling (like when you are really tired and all your limbs and you head just feels really heavy) and all I want to do all day is just lay down.
Avatar f tn I was told they should rise every 48hrs I had hcg levels taken on 4 weeks 5 days and then on 5 weeks and first level was 198 and second was 479 they said it was good
Avatar n tn This is my second cycle of superovulation with follistim and HCG shot to trigger ovulation. Last month, I had 2 good eggs (24,22) and one ok egg (18). Last month ended up with a chemical pregnancy. This month I went in for my CD 11 u/s after 8 nights of follistim. She said that I had one good egg at (20) and 2 ok eggs at 18. I also had like 8 eggs that were measuring 15.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if hypothyroidism can affect the hcg level. I am on day 30 and nothing, but the pregnancy test I tok said negative. I just had my thyroid checked last week and it very low. Just wondering...
Avatar n tn lol its a joke and its his HCG and the goof kevin pushing people need to get a clue..and fast....
Avatar n tn well u cant unless you know some1 that sells it lol and umm no im not taking hcg I just know alot about diff losing weight options and like learning more and more so I took up hcg as my next target.
Avatar n tn I am doing my second round of hCG and continue to take my Synthroid. Have had no problems, however, I have found if I include the Melba/Grissini starch my weight loss isn't as good. May be just me. I lost 26 lbs and 30 inches on the first round last year. Am doing the second, and hopefully last, round now. Keep an eye on your calcium balances after the TT, mine bottomed out the night of the surgery and I've been on calcium tablets off and on since then.
921323 tn?1268679412 I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons. 1) Supplementation with HCG has not been proven to be effective as compared to placebo. Multiple double-blind placebo controlled studies have not demonstrated a beneficial effect. Not much else to say about this. It just doesn’t work. Please note - I am not talking about the prolonged and severe calorie restriction that accompanies it. That works just fine. It just isn’t healthy. See #2.
Avatar m tn I know that you must stop prescribed and over the counter medications when following the hcg diet (shots), but I am hypothyroid and I am afraid to stop the daily medication that I take for this condition. I already stop my bio-identical hormones.
Avatar n tn He states that this area could cause issues with the treatment and to stop taking any thyroid medications during but ends the section with an exception for Thyroid being medically deactivating or removed. To irraticate a disease called Graves, I had mine rendered inactive from a radioactive iodine treament and now take 0.175mg of Synthroid daily. This has been a stabilized dosage for 6 months now... What I am trying to understand is if I can continue to take my medication while on the program?
Avatar f tn Do I still take my synthroid (150 mcg.) while I take HCG ?
Avatar n tn i have never taken armour, only thyroxine (in UK) and synthroid here for the last 8 months. I have weaned myself off over the last few months and now take no meds. i stopped prozac as well. i believe the drugs make me fatter and truly unhealthy. i started to take lexapro then cymabalta then prozac and the last 8 months have gained almost 40 lbs. it's awful. yes i eat too much, no i did not exercise enough (i do 4-5 times a week now), but 40lbs in 8 months is nuts.
Avatar n tn when most people can not inject urine..and eat 800-1000 cals and lose weight..real weight..that will not come right back when HCG is stopped...this is just a 'trick' a 'shortcut' and in the end I will be 100% right..this is a fad and will not work long with drugs that 'try' to tell your brain your not hungry...those are my fav ! and ALLI the new OTC junk...and if you will id like your reply to why not do it the way I said..vs wa a pleasure to read your post...
