  • HI smudgeeco, I think you mean that you make sure your TSH is well suppressed, don't you? Because if your T3 were suppressed... well, it doesn't bear thinking about! lol So do you know what your T3 is? Just testing the TSH isn't enough - especially if you have no thyroid!

    Diets won't help you when you're hypo. It probably isn't even real fat, but a mixture of fluid and myxodeoma. Ignore doctors, they know nothing about nutrition, weight, or the losing of it.

    Hugs, Grey

  • Hello Smudgeeco, I too have no thyroid due to thyroid cancer in 2003, and have struggled with all sorts of issues including weight.

    I have found that being on T3 has helped, and getting B12 injections every 4 weeks, good levels of D3, folate, and ferritin.

    I agree with greygoose, don't listen to the doctors, you will find the information you need on this site. it is thanks to all the advice and information on here, that I am finally getting better.

    Good luck! x

  • Hello Smudgeeco, I have thyroid cancer too. I'm not too overweight but I can't loose weight even if I try. The only time I lost weight was when I was feeling really ill with anxiety and depression but I wouldn't recommend it, it was horrible.

    If you are feeling in good spirits then that's a good thing. I don't know what the answer is. I've been reading about how the endocrine system works and it's complicated but it makes sense to find out whether you have enough t3 in your body.

    I read that T2 is one of the thyroid hormones that helps with weight control but your body has to make T2 from T3 so if you are low on T3 your body might not make enough??? I don't understand it all yet but it sounds like Margo has found t3 helpful. I'm thinking of looking into it too.
