Since being diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism / Graves' Disease back in September and starting block and replace treatment, I have put weight on and I feel awful.
Before being diagnosed I had lost over 2 stone and I thought it was great, little did I know what was causing the rapid weight loss. Since starting my medication (Propranolol - 40mg, Carbimazole - 40mg, Levothyroxine - 75mg) I was advised not to do any strenuous exercise and was told that the long walks I do with the dog each day would be sufficient enough until my levels had balanced out.
I am hoping that when I go to see my Endo next week he will take me off the Propranolol completely and I hope my levels will look good too. I can't wait to get back in to a good gym routine, I have been trying to watch what I eat as well but nothing seems to work.
Has anyone else been through this? And do you have any advice?
