can't stop

Hi there everybody

Hoping for some insight into what's going on please..

I have just gone up to 100 mcg levo but for weeks now i wake up in the night most of the time twice and i need food at least on the first time of waking. Like.. Really need it. So find myself in the kitchen eating crap quick food. Then lately i seem to be very hungry throughout the day too.

What's going on?. I have an insatiable appetite. Anyone able to shed some light please?

Many many thanks

This happened to me when I first began taking this dose. However after about 3 months it stopped.

Probably because your metabolism has been kick started by your increase in meds. I had this temporarily too when I first started taking thyroid meds. Try and keep something healthy ready for when you wake up x

Get your cortisol tested if it continues. (Saliva not blood as more accurate) Mine is high and it makes me ravenous and I never feel full 😩
