I'm having a hard time with weight gain. I've gained 20lbs in 3 months! It's gotten me pretty depressed! I was diagnosed with graves. My TSH was low...0.005. thats as low as the chat reads which means it could be lower. My TT3 was @ 411 and T4 was 6.01. I got on metha something and went in and the T4 was lowered considerably to 2.99. I'm afraid I'm gonna keep getting bigger and bigger! At first I wanted to get my thyroid removed but doing that seems pretty miserable 2! I have body image issues and a major fear of weight gain. Is it only going to get worse? Has anyone experienced a leveling out followed by weight loss? uggggh!
