I'm relatively new to this site but I'm so glad I found it. I've been looking through the posts & I think the support you get it is just brilliant.
Basically, I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in April 2016. I was told I was borderline with a TSH of 5.1 so was started on 25mg of levothyroxine. It since increased to 100mg. A recent blood test came back with a tsh of 3.1.
The problem I'm having is my weight is creeping up. I have very little carbs in my diet & try to eat as healthy as I can. I have porridge for breakfast most mornings & all bran for lunch. I do have a very bad sweet tooth which I'm trying my hardest to control.
I recently invested in Gaia herbs thyroid support after reading brilliant reviews but I'm at a loss as to why my weight is increasing.. Every few days, it's goes up a pound. I'm too scared of weighing myself now & feel so depressed. I have 3 young children under the age of 4 to look after too & don't want to be feeling like this. I must admit I am feeling much better now that I am on 100mg levothyroxine.
Can anyone help me pls.
I recently give blood to have my vit D, B12, ferritin tested so should have results Wednesday - Thursday
