Since my daughter was diagnosed at 13 with an overactive thyroid, and regained the serious amount of weight that she had lost, she has what i have seen others on here referr to as a 'moonface'; she seems to put weight on so easily here and i know affects her enormously. Im convinced itsconnected to her thyroid status; it doesnt 'sit well' on her, and she often doesnt look well, and is easily tired. I know others have mentioned this trait, and wondered if anyone knows enough about its causes to explain it; and is there anything she can do? She is now 22. She does 'block and replace' ; on carbimazole and levo. Thus far we/she has refused any other treatment.
