I have had Hashimotos now for 6 years. Up until this past 1.5 years I had been able to lose weight if I put on a few. Now, over the past year I have gained 7 to 10 pounds and no matter how clean I eat, or my workouts, can I drop a single pound of it. I am on NatureThroyd and last time we checked I was having hyper symptoms, so we lowered dosage. I am on 65mg 2 x day. I have tried Levoxyl, Armour and now NatureThroyd. I have been gluten free for 2 years, eat very little grains..and small meals 5 times a day.
Is it possible, that with Hashi's the metabolism is always going to be compromised even with meds?? That the longer were on it, the worse our metabolism will work.
I lift weights 3 x week, and have tried low intensity workouts to HIIT to try and kick start metabolism. I have checked my adrenals, which were low last time I checked, and Iron which was good. I have descent energy and am sleeping well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Shared experiences???
