Avatar n tn There is no magic solution to weight loss. Thyroid should only give 10 to 15 lbs weight gain (thyroid.org) that would be easily lost once regulated on meds and levels correct for you within Labs reference range. If weight is more, than its do to something else and not thyroid! One of the enduring myths about the under active thyroid is that it is responsible for obesity. It is not.

Avatar n tn This is when my problem began. I started to get symptoms, exhaustion, and weight gain. One and half years later and many adjustments to my medications, I am still gaining weight. My doctor put me on 88 mg. synthroid 6 days a week and 5mg. cytomel twice a day. I have more energy but I am still gaining weight. Any suggestions? I really am getting frustrated by this dieting and weight gain.
Avatar f tn I struggle with my weight as it is and i have heard that with a total thyroidectomy and going on synthroid weight gain is an almost certainty. Can anyone shed light on this..I am considering a partial and if its cancer having it done again. Good or bad decision?
1139187 tn?1355710247 Hello, Hashimotos, no meds. Ears ring,tired, weight gain despite exercise. I've put on 9 pounds in 3 weeks. I'm always hungry. I'm going to buy some whey protein and start drinking an afternoon shake to try to supress my appetite. Does anyone have any other suggestions who has gone through this? Also boiled eggs, eating egg whites as snacks. What else?
Avatar n tn My eating habits have not changed - if anything, I'm watching more what I eat because of the weight gain. I would rather have the hypothroid than the weight. Has this happened to anyone else? What have you done? Would a different medication be better and not have the same effect? Silly me - I actually thought I may lose weight with the medication, but not so. I'd love to hear from some of you before I quit taking my meds.
Avatar n tn May need to see a endocrinologist to have your thyroid checked. Symptoms of an under-active thyroid include unexplained weight gain, fatigue, slow heartbeat, constipation, dry skin and a low tolerance for cold. The stress of trying to keep up with hormone needs can cause your gland to swell and create a bump in your lower neck.
317787 tn?1473362051 Next time she gets blood work, she should insist that her doctor order Free T3, instead of Total T3. The weight gain is a symptom of hypothyroidism, as is high cholesterol and triglycerides... You have the range for the triglycerides, but no result. Does she have any other symptoms of being hypo, such as constipation, muscle/joint aches/pains, hair loss, fatigue, facial puffiness, etc? There are tons more... I'm just trying to think of the main ones I had...
Avatar n tn Did anyone gain weight on tx? Oddly enough as much as I was concerned about losing the weight, I seemed to have gained up to almost 5lbs. Curious???? Could that weight be related to thyroid? If thyroid, then would there be any other symptoms that would manifest itself to make me think," Hmmmm....thyroid?" Like feeling full after eating and so on and so on.....
Avatar f tn I have been trying to lose weight now for over two years and continue to gain no matter how much I exercise, I do mostly cardio very little weights. I have modified my diet and what I eat cut out soda and coffee and my main thing I do drink is water w/lemon...I have asked my dr several times why can't i lose weight and her response is to exercise more..I have had blood work done for my thyroid and it comes back "normal" .
Avatar n tn When I began the synthroid, the weight gain stopped; however, getting off the excess is fairly perplexing to me also. I'd also appreciate info . . .
Avatar f tn HAS ANY ONE HAD WEIGHT GAIN WITH YOUR SLUGGISH THYROID. AS MUCH AS I TRY I CAN NOT GET THE WEIGHT OFF. I JUST FEEL SO PUFFY ALL THE TIME. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS ON WEIGHT LOSS ... DIET PILLS ETC. I AM GOING ON VACATION SOON AND CAN'T GET INTO ANY OF MY CLOTHES. I AM REALLY GETTING DEPRESSED. MY DOCTOR INCREASED MY MEDS BUT I FEEL NO DIFFERENT YET. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE YOU START FEELING BETTER?
Avatar m tn //www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3122632?dopt=Abstract Your doctor lowering your med to help with the weight makes no sense.
1426120 tn?1283042872 Certain medications like antidepressants cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen. If the above causes are eliminated then you can join a weight trainer and a nutrition expert and follow their advice and lose weight under their guidance. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Does everyone gain weight with Hashimotos and hypothyroid. It is so depressing. I am thinking on going on WW or Nutrisystem, but will I lose weight if my thyroid is still screwed up? I have low motility too when it comes to digestion too. Took the sitz test and an average person can poop out the beads in 2 days and it took 7 for me. What have other done? I am frustrated!
Avatar n tn A medical problem or use of certain medication may also make you gain weight. Medications that can cause weight gain include corticosteroids and drugs used to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression. Hormone changes can also cause unintentional weight gain.
Avatar f tn Are there certain foods that I should avoid to prevent weight gain? Should I cut my alcohol and coffee consumption? I feel bloated especially at the end of the day. I've been on Synthroid 25mg for a week now and I feel my face is puffy and round. I also have an increased appetite! I'm 55 years old and in menopause and I really don't want to gain weight. I'm relatively physically active. Walks every day.
361026 tn?1197563128 What other symptoms do you have besides weight gain? Please post your thyroid test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report.
Avatar n tn you may be heading into a whole bunch of new symptoms, talk to your Dr maybe there's another med. that doesn't cause weight gain, it may not have anything to do with the med.
233622 tn?1279338505 I wonder if things will eventually stablize and we might be able to get our weight back down. Weight has always been an issue for me, so this is not new. My thyroid was checked this summer and I actually tend to be more on the over active side when it comes to my thyroid levels. I am still within normal range but actually not too far away from the hyperthyroid side. I lost a lot of weight on the low carb diet. Actually I went on a gluten free diet and that helped so much.
Avatar n tn I was also looking up propanolol and you said it causes weight gain as well as belly weight. I have never had much belly weight and now I do and I bet it is from that. The endo dr. said he was going to take me off the propanolo eventually but do you think my side effects will come back like the shakiness?
Avatar n tn Rapid weight gain Abdominal discomfort and distention Shortness of breath Swollen ankles
Avatar f tn You could also have an autoimmune disease, possibly Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which can also cause weight gain, along with other symptoms. Since this is the weight loss forum, please feel free to send me a PM and can discuss this further, or feel free to check out the thyroid forum, as there's a ton of information that might be helpful.
Avatar f tn Apart from pregnancy, other possible causes of weight gain that should be ruled out are thyroid dysfunction, fluid retention, hormonal changes such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, effect of medications and even mass. If this persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I had a hysterectomy when I was 45, but I didn't begin to gain weight until my thyroid whacked out -- it just so happened, that I quit smoking about the same time, so we all (doctors AND myself) put the weight gain down to quitting smoking at first, but then when I found that diet and exercise were not doing anything for me, we had to dig deeper. That's when we found the thyroid issue.
