Hi - I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction please. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with underactive thyroid. I have been on Levothyroxin ever since - about 100mg per day. I go for regular blood tests but am told everything is in order. I feel tired all of the time (always falling asleep by 8-9pm and regular naps at the weekend) and go through regular 'down' periods where I do not feel like doing anything.
I always have a bloated stomach (although that might be gluten sensitivity), brittle nails, I am in a stressful job and when it really gets bad my whole body seems to bloat. I think i have a problem with sugar digestion as well - I have removed as much sugar from my diet as possible.
I now start the day with lemon and hot water and try to eat as healthily and unprocessed as possible. I exercise regularly 3-4 times per week and regularly walk approx 10,000 steps every day. I do not seem to lose the weight.
Just wondered if this was just normal for underactive thyroid.
Any help, advice would be greatly appreciated.
