I'm a newbie so excuse any mistakes etc.
Feeling pretty rubbish at the moment and been getting worse over the last 6 years. Have all symptoms of underactive thyroid - fatigue, brain fog, dry skin, thinning hair, massive weight gain and inability to lose when dieting.
I've had several GP visits over the last few years all with no success the last one I visited with my BH test results told me that I was in denial about being depressed and should not eat meat every day!!!! She did agree to a Vit D test and as I haven't heard anything I'm assuming that they are within 'normal levels'.
Anyways don't want to ramble or bore anyone but for a bit of background I had my mirena coil removed 18 months ago (thought that might have been the problem) with no change in symptoms and tried a real fitness kick with a personal trainer 3 years ago. I only lost 10lbs over 6 months even though I did hard core interval/circuit training, spin, body pump etc for 8 hours a week and sticking to 1200-1500 calories a day. Really hard work and had to sleep every afternoon, it just wasn't sustainable with family/work life. I'm not lazy but an hour 4 times a week is all I can fit in without stressing about time and having a family life. The brain fog is a nightmare when I'm trying to concentrate and sometimes I just want to put my head on my workdesk (I only have to work around 25-30 hours a week) and go to sleep.
Just want to feel healthy and have the energy to be active and start the gym again, I would really appreciate anyone's views on my results.
