I'm sure this is a question many newly diagnosed people wish to know the answer to! I am hypo and have gained 2 stone over the last couple of years. I've only been diagnosed since May and am on the road of discovery/recovery!! I'm lucky to have a doctor that is trying to help me, she doesn't dismiss me although I seem to know more about thyroid than she does.
I'm currently trying to get iron and vit D levels up as I was/am deficient and have a referral to an endo (when I can decide who to go to!) but rightly or wrongly, a huge concern for me is this damn weight gain. I know I need to be optimal in all areas (vit levels etc)first but if this ever happens, can I be confident that healthy eating will produce a weight loss, or is it impossible to predict?! It would be wonderful to hear some positive stories from those that have achieved weightloss and read how hey did it!! I tried weight watchers for a few weeks and managed to gain a few pounds just how is that possible??? I put it down to the fact that my vitamin levels are low and once these are where they should be, I will start to lose some weight. Someone tell me this is possible because being fat is making me more miserable than any other symptom I have (and I have many!!!)
