Another of my hypo symptoms seems to be carb/sugar cravings. One of the reasons why I put on 3+ stone before diagnosis of hypo, was my need to eat a lot of carbs/sugar. I'd eat anything with carbs/sugar in, even tho' before I became hypo I rarely ate biscuits/cakes/sweets etc. I've noticed that after treatment with T4, my carb cravings begin to go. They returned when I had a flare up of other symptoms/high TSH earlier this year and after my T4 dose was increased, again, carb cravings subsided. At present I'm really well and have no cravings. Has anyone noticed this happens to them, and why does it happen?
