Over the last 12 months (prior to diagnosis of hypothyroidism) I put on a vast amount of weight (3 stone!!) I eat a healthy diet, all home made meals from scratch, eat no bread and only Brown rice and pasta. Yet I can't loose weight at all! I was first diagnosed in march with a TSH >100 (0.4-5.0) free t4 <5.1 (no range given) I'm currently on 150mcg levothyroxine, my last readings were TSH 3.02 (0.4-5.0) free t4 16, I know I'm not low enough yet but only just had my increase to 150mcg and still got 3 weeks until my next bloods are due to be done. Am I expecting too much too soon with expecting to be able to loose weight, or will this only be possible once my meds are right? It's really starting to get me down. x
