Hi. Can Levothyroxine cause rapid weight gain or is that just down to my 'undernourished ' thyroid.
I have Hashimotos. I understand I've had it for a long time. I think my second pregnancy was the trigger.
After my baby girl I lost 3 stone on Slimming World. Then it stopped working for a year then I got diagnosed.
What I'm questioning is why suddenly I am rapidly gaining weight? Is it because I'm on higher and higher doses of Levothyroxine or is it because I'm not on the right levels yet....if it's the latter that confuses me as I've never been on the right meds.....
I am eating sensibly. I am gaining 2lbs a week currently.
