My first posting, so I hope I can be precise: my doctor (now retired) diagnosed me with an under active thyroid 23 years ago. On Levothyroxine daily, now 125mcg, and 3 monthly blood tests. I also suffer from very bad migraines, on Rizatriptan 10mg when needed. I am also registered deaf following a virus 7 years ago. Yes I have gained weight over the years, but felt well, all medication in place, and take great care with a healthy lifestyle. Now a new doctor insists I must lose weight. 1m70 and 80 kilos. Sent me to an NHS weight class locally. I attended for 3 weeks, followed their advice, only to be weighed last Friday and have not lost one kilo. I was laughed at and told to go running around the park 2/3 times, feeling the sweat and increasing heartbeat!! I will not return. BUT I would like to lose some weight, any advice on a dietician who understands thyroid problems. My old doctor always told me it was the mixture of medication I was taking and I have been the same weight for the last 6 years. How do you cope with the weight gain? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
