I have been on thyroxine for around 20 years. When I first had blood test due to chronic tiredness and rapid weight gain my results were borderline underactive. My GP said although my weight gain was due to this he could not prescribe medication. Eventually the results showed underactive thyroid and I built my way upto 150. Over the years I have never lost the weight and when complaining to the GP that thyroxine wasn't workin was told that some people do not realise what and how much they are eating lol ive made other attempts to get other medications but have always been brushed off. I can stick to a diet such as ww or slimming world to the latter and not lose an ounce! Lately I have been trying to understand a our t3 t4 etc but my fuzzy brain won't let me. Can anyone explain in a simple way please 💕
