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 f tn I also have night sweats, hot flashes, sleep problems, headaches, mood swings, and have had a few panic attacks in the night. My confusion is that most of my symptoms point to hypothyroidism except for weight issues. I gained a little weight, not more than a few pounds, at first. Now I have lost 10 in only 2 months without effort or wanting too. I have lost all my muscle mass. I am 5'4" and now weigh 102. Can I still be hypothyroid and be losing so much weight so quickly?
Avatar n tn t really need to gain if you were over weight when the pregnancy started. Eat healthy meals, normal portions, exercise moderately. You may lose weight naturally as baby takes up some of the excess calories you were consuming. I'd consider yourself weight neutral right now and just eat healthy with proper portion control and not worry about the end result of your weight.
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 Exercise is the most effective way to speed the metabolism, making it a powerful tool in overcoming the weight gain side effects of hypothyroidism. Strength-training sessions should be done twice a week. Gradually work your exercise up to this amount. But someone with hypothyroidism, this should be the bare minimum. If you are still struggling with weight gain, increase the frequency and duration of your workouts.
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 t think you can raise your metabolism as such, but if your medication is right you will find the weight will shift naturally. I was overweight prior to my surgery, and now 10 months on I have lost a ton of weight. I think if you try to do some walking or gentle excersises to start with you will find it will help. Good luck!
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.
