On 100mg of thyroxine but still have smytoms . Weight gain , tried , swollen hands and feet . Seen Dr who said not thyroid but age (50) ! Asked what I could do to lose weight because no matter i do it doesn't go down all she could offer was Oristat or gastric surgery asked for an increase of meds but was told I didn't need it all in range . Decided to see another Dr he said all my bloods in range last test tsh 1.79 and ft4 12.1 this was July . Asked to be referred to the weight managment people at the hospital and had to have blood done again just got results tsh 2.78 and ft4 11.6 told all in range but my cholesterol was raised at 6.6 . I new my bloods would be up because I'm doing silly things again like putting things in wrong place calling people different names ! What can I do they just will not help ?
