Hi! It's been awhile since I've been on here. I have hyperthyroidism, Graves, and Hoshimotos. I was dx back in 2009 and was put on Methamazole which now I'm only taking 2.5 mg a day. I've had 3 drs w/ the same practice. My dr now at my Endo is young and I do like her. We tried once to ween me off and see if I would go in remission and it did not work. Back when I was dx I was around 150 lbs. I'm 5' 1" and was always on the thin side till I had kids. I was satisfied where I was at. However, over the years, I ballooned up to 190 lbs. I've tried different programs and eating styles but would never lose more than a few lbs. So, I know the risks and the choice I made may not be good but 2 1/2 months ago I weaned myself off the meds. Since then I've lost 15 lbs but became very hyper again. I had a blood test a week ago for other things and they took the thyroid labs too. I knew I would get a call from the drs office but wasnt expecting the dr herself to call me. That impressed me. I let her know my frustration of when I take the meds my metabolism stops and with my size I cant be 190 lbs. I did restart taking the meds again on my own about two weeks ago. My question is how can I lose weight? Anyone else have issues w/ the meds and weight loss?? Thanks!
it has been 5 years since diagnosis and I went off meds 4 months ago. No symptoms so far. Monday I will have my labs drawn and have endocrine follow up.i can’t wait to see what happens.
Hi, it's been a while since I have posted. I have been to two endocronologists and paid out of pocket for two functional medicine consults. I am taking supplements, but I am still not receiving treatment. I had an appointment this morning and the endo is still refusing to treat my condition, he said it is not far enough out of range to warrant anything. On Saturday I was at an event and I...
