Losing weight fast thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight fast thyroid


Avatar f tn If you're losing weight unintentionally, you need to see your doctor. There are some very serious medical issues that cause weight loss/inability to gain. One is hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid). You need to have some simple thyroid function tests done... those are Free T3, Free T4 and TSH. Another is diabetes. Blood sugar tests are needed to diagnose that. Both of these conditions can be present for a while before symptoms show up, so you should get tested asap...
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn I developed hypothyroidism when I was pregnant with my son and now I'm on a pill for it. I've been trying really hard to lose my baby weight but I'm not getting very far very fast. I take my pill like I'm supposed to and diet and exercise. I was wondering if there was any helpful tips to weight loss for a person with hypothyroid disease?
Avatar f tn t want to lose weight fast. Losing weight fast leads to saggy baggy skin. Lose it nice and slow, just like you put it on. One pound at a time.

Avatar f tn Hi hubby on wk20 on Tues out of 24wk when he finished with the teleprevir his appetite came back but he is still losing weight so far he as lost over 2 stone and we cant understand why when he eating so well.
Avatar f tn I am losing large amounts of weight very quickly I cant keep anything including most liquids down for over a month now. I was not big to begin with about 130 and currently almost down to 100.suffered for years with an eating disorder and it resurfaced recently worse than ever. was hospitalized with vomiting blood recently and after released I have no choice but to vomit after every little sip or bite of anything because even if I wamted to keep it down my body forces it out.
Avatar n tn Not everyone gains weight after thyroid surgery. The key is to make sure your replacement thyroid hormone dosage is sufficient to keep your levels within normal limits. Make sure your doctor tests you within 6 weeks of any dosage change. I have struggled with weight all my life, except when I was hyperactive thyroid from Graves. I had a TT two years ago, and have been able to actually lose 10-15 pounds.
Avatar f tn What was the reference range for the FT4? Is it safe to assume that there was no FT3 run? Your TSH is definitely below the current range of 0.3-3.0, so was it a month ago and I really understand your doctor saying these levels are "fine". Depending on the range for your FT4, it's possible that you could be hyper, but of course, there's no way of knowing for sure without an FT3, which is the active thyroid hormone. Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid condition?
Avatar f tn I just thought because thyroid affects metabolism, losing weight might boost my metabolism thus affecting thyroid levels. PLUS I was concerned only because I know thyroid will affect your periods etc..So I guess I figured since it affects your periods there must be some kind of connection between thyroid and estrogen and progesterone. I only lost 10lbs within 2 months..not too fast, etc.
Avatar f tn People don't, typically, take Thyronorm if they are hyperthyroid... Do you mean hypothyroid, instead? If your mom has been overweight and had trouble losing weight, it could be normal for her to lose weight with a dosage increase; however, if she didn't need to lose weight and is losing too fast, it's possible that her dosage is too high. Did they test her thyroid hormone levels before they increased her Thyronorm dosage? If so, can you post them for us to see?
594189 tn?1386916607 Well... the recommended amount of weight per week is 1-2 pounds. Just wanting to ask, do you exercise and follow a healthy meal plan?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn I lost weight during my first pregnancy so I would say its normal :) dont worry.
