hi everyone - i was diagnosed with a borderline throid issue but am symptomatic - so they put me on 25mg of levothyroxine - which did nothing, yesterday i was put on 50mg as i was still gaining weight, still tired, my current tsh levels are about 5.8.. not much like i said borderline.
the good newsa is that my doctor agreed for my next blood test to include t3 and t4 levels.
my question is, can people successfully lose weight on it.. i feel like im doing everything right - i count calores, i exercise, i weigh and measure everything that goes into my mouth - textbook? it should be dropping of me. but this week after 1400 calories a day i gained 0.6lbs which is not much i know... but the previous weeks i gained 8lbs 1 week, 3lbs the next. yep 11lbs in 2weeks!!! this is on a 1400 calorie diet with exercise - no treat meals. i just feel that if the medication just put my thyroid where its meant to be at a normal level then i can do the rest, as everything else is spot on.. will this happen?
