Losing weight hypothyroidism

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 f tn any tips on how to lose weight with hypothyroidism? i was diagnosed 3 yrs ago and have put on over 20 lbs since then, although some has been from 2 pregnancies.
Avatar f tn The first thing you should do is get some simple blood tests to make sure you don't have a medical issue keeping you from losing. Those could include hypothyroidism, insulin resistance and PCOS (if you aren't past menopause). These conditions can cause weight gain and/or make losing almost impossible. The second thing you need to do is calculate the calories you actually need on a daily basis, then keep a food diary to see if you're staying within your calorie allotment.
Avatar f tn My situation is: I found out that my thyroid wasn't working properly about 8 years ago (hypothyroidism), I'll be 37 in April.... I was put on Synthroid, then Levothyroxine.... started out around 45mgs, then a few years later went up to 75mgs, and now just recently was changed to 88mgs.... I also started having trouble with Edema around the same time or shortly after.... I have to take a water pill (25mgs) daily because of it.... I've tried losing weight and nothing is happening....
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 f tn I take thyroid replacement and have gotten off of all weight gaining pills and take organic supplements instead. So my question is what should I do in addition or differently to keep losing weight.
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 n tn My target for losing weight is 58-52kg , in a month . How can i get more losing weight in the fast way ? I really do want to lose weight . Please do give me a benefit comment and some response . Thank you .
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 One of the characteristics of the disease is the severe fluctuation of the hormone levels (hyperthyroidism / hypothyroidism), which causes fluctuation of weight loss and weight gain. This maybe why you are able to loss and gain weight fast at times as you stated. As your disease progresses you will find that you will not be losing weight as rapid as now, and may struggle with maintaining weight due to the condition of hypothyroidism, unless your MD puts you on medication.
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.
1657977 tn?1302310546 Why am I not losing weight ?I am eating 1300-1400 cal a day with 30-45 min brisk walk daily.It is frustrating.Please help.
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 m tn Why am I losing weight without trying? My doctor thinks it's either from cancer or diabetes. Here's my timeline of weight loss: January - 283 lbs May -246 lbs Today - 201 lbs Mind you this is without trying at all. No dieting or exercising.
Avatar m tn It's not enough to say "T3 and T4 were within range"....... can you tell of if those are Free T3 and Free T4 or if they are Total T3 and Total T4? There is a difference; total free's are considered obsolete and of very little value. In addition, the ranges are very broad, so even though you fall within the normal range, that may not be normal for you.
1389411 tn?1279979913 recently a few weeks ago, i noticed i was gaining a littel weight after staying at 48 kilos for years. i have been keeping a strict diet of fresh salads, cooked vegetables, small amount of sweets, etc. (i'm sure i'm not exceeding 1000 calories a day) and exercising almost every day at the gym (spinning, aerobics, dance, etc.). instead of losing weight i've put on 2 kilos! can't figure out why this is happening!
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.
