Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight hypothyroidism


Avatar n tn Fighting through the sluggishness and fatigue of hypothyroidism is difficult, but adding daily exercised can be a great aid in losing weight. If you aren't currently exercising, start with an easy walk. Get plenty of rest. The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who sleep less than 6 hours each night have a higher body mass index than people who sleep 8 or more hours.
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 n tn I have been losing weight gradually and consistently. i recently did a blood test and my Doctor told me I had hypothyroid. When asked if this could contribute to my weight loss, he said I should be gaining weight instead! What seems to be happening?
Avatar n tn I started to lose weight at two pounds per week and I have hypothyroidism which makes losing weight pain staking. You should only go for losing two pounds a week and no more than that. You might need to up your exercise for more cardio type activity.

Panda It is the same product I used when I reach a weight plateau. It shifted my weight within days. Got no side effect either.
Avatar f tn It's possible, but you'll have to be very diligent. That's 27 pounds and only 2.5 months to lose it... that means you'll have to lose more than 10 lbs/month. If you're anything like me, I've lost and gained the same 10 pounds, at least, monthly over the past few years. My first question is whether or not you have any medical issues, such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, etc that might make it more difficult to lose that much weight in so short a time.
Avatar f tn perhaps you have an underlying medical condition that is preventing weight loss, such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, or PCOS that is preventing you from losing weight. If the hormones in your body are not balanced correctly, you will have a hard time losing weight. You should ask your doctor to run some simple tests to verify that you don't have a medical issue causing you to retain weight. In addition, make sure you check side effects of any medications you take...
Avatar f tn You might want to have some simple blood tests to determine if you have a medical condition that is preventing you from losing weight. The 3 that come to mind are hypothyroidism, insulin resistance and/or PCOS. All 3 of those can cause weight gain or inability to lose. To test for hypothyroidism, you need Free T3, Free T4 and TSH.

Avatar m tn She tested normal at birth but at 9 months the tests started coming back elevated and now at 12 months she has gotten this diagnosis. However, the reason they did the bloodwork was because she is losing weight. She has none of the symptoms.

Avatar m tn regardless of being told Levoxyl will keep me from being symptomatic, will it also keep me from losing weight? Is Levoxyl inhibiting my metabolism from losing weight as well as gaining it. Last year for six months I kept my diet to 2000 calories , circuit trained everyday and maybe lost 5 pounds. I'm 240 pounds.....
Avatar f tn t have hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, etc, as these can all make losing weight more difficult, as well as causing aches/pains by themselves. I totally agree that you need to opt for low impact exercise, such as swimming, water aerobics, yoga, etc. Once you start losing some weight, you should see some of the pains diminish.
978106 tn?1285108401 I do not expect to lose alot of weight at a time. I want to do this slowly so it will stick, but the problem is im gaining weight. I lost 11lbs at first and have since gained back 3 in the last 2 weeks. I also have been more active over the last month, but admit not so much in the last week, I took a full time temp job and go to school full time so I have not had the time as of late. Help!
Avatar f tn t have an medical issues that might prevent you from losing weight, such as hypothyroidism or insulin resistance. Your doctor can order some simple blood tests. You would need to calculate the number of calories you need/day, just to function (that means, keep your heart beating, kidneys, lungs, and other organs functioning), then drop off about 500 calories/day (or 250 and burn an extra 250). That would give you a weight loss of 1 pound/week.
Avatar f tn When you tone muscle it becomes a heavy mass, heavier than fat, therefore you will weight more but as you said losing inches. This is totally normal and healthy! Im a qualified personal trainer and what you described there is totally normal, your losing weight in a healthy manner which is hard to do so fair play to you, keep it up! The thyroid will set you back and losing weight will take longer! If you are worried and need any advice you can PM me!
Avatar n tn I started out on 2-25mg topamax a day and was losing weight my dr put me on just 1-50mg now and am gaining weight like crazy,is there a reason for this change that I should be aware or have checked
Avatar n tn My doctor sent me for some sort of Iodine Uptake Test to confirm the diagnsosis. I started losing weight rapidly dropping from 287 pounds to 199 pounds in about five months. While away at college I started gaining weight again rather rapidly, I thought that the condition may have actually reversed itself and turned into hypothyroidism but after returning to my doctor and having more blood work done I found out that my hormone level had nearly doubled from 2.5 to 4.7.
Avatar f tn I'm 5'4", 33 year old female, active in weight lifting/ cardio since 2007 and a crossfit athlete for 10 months ago. I was eating approx 1000-1300 cal for the past 2.5 years. As a result, I lost the fat I was hoping to but consequently developed hypothyroidism and amenorrhea. This august, I made an effort to correct the metabolic disturbances under the direction of a registered dietician. I increased my caloric intake to 1600 cal/day.
Avatar n tn I would suggest that if you want to lose weight in a short time, do not lose too much weight too quickly. For long term weight loss, losing the weight gradually is best. Your family doctor who knows your health history is the best place to start before starting a diet.
