Here are my most recent blood test results. I had RAI for Graves disease in March of last year – have had a few ups and downs since then – but things really haven’t been that bad so I’ve been lucky. I’m currently taking Levothyrox which has also been okay. I take 50 mg one day and 25 mg the next.
But I’ve put on about 4 kilograms recently which pleases me not at all. I’m 56 and have just gone through the menopause – I take no medication whatsoever for that.
I eat loads of fruit and veg, very little meat, I have not got any food allergies, I walk about 2 kilometres a day, I don’t smoke and I don’t drink. I eat far less than the rest of the family. I do yoga. My only vice is one spoonful of sugar in tea / coffee.
Is this weight gain going to continue, do you think? How can I stop it? The GP has told me not to diet, just eat a bit less. I’m now thinking about food all the time!!
Thanks for any suggestions
