After 18 months on Levo, now up to 150mcg, I feel well and sleep well. However, there are to things I am not happy about:
1. I still have major hair loss. Just when I think it's growing back, another lot falls out! For about the first six months on Levo, it was positively luxuriant, but I'm back to square one again. B12 and ferritin are optimal, so I'm wondering if this is a side effect of the Levo and I'm stuck with it.
2. Before I was on Levo , I spent nearly two years on T3 only. In this time I put on 3 stone, going from just over 9 stone to 12 stone. In my first four months on Levo, I list 20lbs pretty much effortlessly - and then no more. Since October 2013, my weight has remained static within about three pounds, so I am still overweight and nothing I have tried has made any difference. I've just done the Dry January thing and not lost a pound, which is the same result as three months on the 5:2, calorie counting and Zest for Life.
I need to find a way to resolve both these issues, the hair and the weight. Most of the time I'm OK, but every now and then I get really down about this and one of those times is now.
Does anyone have any ideas?
