I'm 5yrs diagnosed Hypothyroid, and on 50mcg of levothyroxine.... This last month I've noticed how much fluid I'm holding, prescribed water tablets are working now, I have pitted oedema on my shins and my hands today gave swollen so much they ache.... Yes I am overweight, and 'dieting' or healthy eating isn't working at all even with exercise ... Anyone else the same or similar??
