Having never been over weight ,Since being diagnosed hypo 3 years ago, I seem to have acquired a lovely roll of fat around my middle and now to ad insult to injury it would a pear that I have a fatty liver !....my liver function test are always poor and I know I'm a little too fond of red wine, so I realise this will have to be cut down.
A friend of mine (also Hypo) mentioned that her liver function tests Is always poor. Is this yet another symptom of Hypo / Hashimoto ?
I've read that the liver is responsible for 80 % of the conversion of t4 to t3, which I assume mine is not managing if it's not functioning properly. This sounds like a vicious circle ...If being Hypo and under-medicated slows everything down, including liver function, then the poor liver function inhibits your ability to convert the t4 to the t3 needed . It's a downward spiral .
This may account for me only feeling well when I'm on a dose that the doctor says is too high, based on the low tsh level.
Does any one else have this problem ?
