I was quite unwell from aged 28and by thirty had a full Hysterectomy due to persistent heavy flooding periods and a number of unexplainable illness. looking at the research these days it was likely to be thyroid all along that caused my menopausal symptoms if this had been identified correctly it may have been that i did not need a hysterectomy at the age of 30. However i went with what the doctors said and had a hystorectomy and then HRT TREATMENT. I had long periods of fluctuating health physical and mental. Eventually 5yrs later they diagnosed me with hypothyroidism. I was put on Levothyroxine. Initially I felt better but then began to see a pattern of fluctuating health again. It turned out that the two meds together gave a contraindications. I stopped taking the HRT and began to feel much better within about 3 months I was a completely different person back to my old self. Since then my thyroid levels have fluctuated and i have struggled with the wieght issues as most of us do.. I discovered a diet plan called 'sure slim' and they pointed out to me that certain foods should be avoided if you have a Hypothyroid . I was shocked at the foods they suggested leaving out of my diet. However I followed their advice and low and behold I began to lose weight. Furthermore when I had my annual blood test my thyroid levels had changed and for the better which suggested I was producing more natural hormone levels. Like every diet plan however after a 3yrs I have gone of track and gained most of the 3 stone back again. but the good news is I have found my old plan and have started on it again and the weight is beginning to come off. So the up shot is I know I need to stick to the plan..x
