I am obese (aged 65) and have just been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid gland. I have tried to cut down on carbs and any food that contain sugar but finding it difficult to lose even 1 lb. Mainly sticking to a low fat diet where possible.
I am due to see to the Dr at the end of the week to pick up my medication for underactive thyroid. I am already on medication for hypertension.
Really worried about the medication as I have read it can cause hair loss and weight gain (cannot afford to put any more weight on).
Any advice and support will be welcome.
