Avatar n tn She is going to the doctor to be tested for the condition, but I donĀ“t even know if it is possible to lose weight on the medicine if you do NOT have a hypothyroid condition?

1088944 tn?1298709604 I was diagnosed today with HypoThyroid, I have gained a lot of weight in the past years. Will I see a rapid weight loss once I start taking the medication? Having this can that be a reason for my not being able to get pregnant?
Avatar n tn Keeping the TSH normal (0.5-2.5) should eliminate any thyroid impact on weight. Most weight gain, even in thyroid patients is not due entirely to the thyroid. It's primarily calories in (and calories out), but having untreated hypothyroidism makes it more difficult.
Avatar f tn fatigue, weakness, weight gain, trouble losing weight, sensitive to cold, muscle aching and cramps, constipation, depression, memory loss, odd menstrual periods.
Avatar n tn - just that the right tests need to be run. I used to suddenly start losing weight also, for no apparent reason. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a couple of years ago and it has since been figured out that I most likely had a problem for the past 15-20 yrs. I would suddenly gain a bunch of weight and nothing I did would take it off, then all of a sudden, I'd lose it (and sometimes more) just as quickly as I gained it.

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with hypothyroid, been put on meds, still not losing weight. Hired a nutritionist, not eating any sugar and very low carb, still no weight loss. She has no idea what is happening, so I went to an Applied Kinesologist, have been off gluten and casein (protein in dairy milk) for 40 days, still no loss. I know we are getting closer to a solution, but my gosh, I feel for you. If you find out some answers, please let me know.
650685 tn?1238004750 Hi Two years ago I was diagnosed Hypothyroid for which I take 100mg Levothyroxine . At the same time because of a strong genetic link I was tested for blood sugar.. I was told I was pre diabetic & that I would almost 100% become type 2 in a few years. Since that shock report I have managed to lose weight & get fit. I am 61 years old & I feel quite well .. Question is just by losing weight & keeping fit would that stop the onset of type 2?
Avatar f tn 4, anti microsomal antibody 132... I have Hashis and hypothyroid. I currently take 300mcg of Levothyroxin and 25mcg of Cytomel, and have for years. Ive gained a huge amount of weight, hoarse voice, annoying cough, dry skin, you name it, Ive got it kinda thing. Im so frustrated, I had to have a hysterectomy due to heavy bleeding 3 years ago. I also have symptoms of both hypo and hyper. Im getting a second opinion next month, but Im at my wits end.
Avatar n tn Losing weight can be difficult, and even more difficult to maintain, if our metabolism is low due to being hypothyroid. There is a ton of good info members can give you. First let's start with you posting your thyroid test results, and their reference ranges shown on the lab report. Also please look at this listing of 26 typical hypothyroid symptoms and tell us how many you have. http://endocrine-system.emedtv.com/hypothyroidism/hypothyroidism-symptoms-and-signs.
Avatar f tn My GP had prescribed thyronorm tablet 50 mcg four times a week. Then he reduced it to thrice a week, as I am losing weight. I am awfully underweight. How to gain weight? Once I heard one endocrinologist saying that it is not good to prescribe thyroxine tablets as it leads to osteoporosis. Cannot understand.

Avatar f tn m having a difficult time losing the weight. I was approved for the lap band surgery and was informed that there would be a good chance that it would eliminate my need for medication as well as encourage weight loss. At this point, I just want to be healthy. Is there a healtier way for me to loose the weight without resorting to surgery while on all of my meds? I have recently consulted with a nutrititionist who informed me that because of me meds, weight loss may be difficult for me.
