I have been suffering with an under active Thyroid for about 1 and a half years.
I am 35 years old Male and 5.8 in height.
I was originally taking Levo when diagnosed but i went up from 13.5 stone to 14.5 stone within a period of 3-4 months. I also felt like rubbish on levo, no energy, pilling on the Weight while exercising 3 times a week and playing local footy once a week.
I also pay alot of money per month for fresh and healthy foods that are portioned.
I then changed to Nature Thyriod, started off with 1 grain and gradually upped my dose to 2 grains per day.
I felt alot better on these tablets and have been on them the last 6 months.
Still my weight to this day is increasing and i am now at my heaviest at 16 Stone.
It is soul destroying, exercising 3 times at least a week eating less than 1500cals a day an not a pound lost, only gained!.
I got my TSH, T4 & T3 results back today please see below :
Your Thyroxine Stimulating Hormone (TSH) test results has been returned as NORMAL Your results
TSH - 2.06 mIU/L ---- Normal range
0.27 - 4.2 mIU/L= Looks ok
T4 - 15.70 pmol/L ----- Normal range 2 - 22 pmol/L = Looks ok
T3 - 7.00 pmol/L Normal range 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L = Slight over but nurse says this is fine.
I am at my wits end, i do admit i feel a lot better altho always wake up with a dry throat but can deal with it. I have gained 2 - 3 stone since i was diagnosed with an under-active Thyriod. I am an active guy.
Has anyone experienced this ? Should i get more tests ? Is it even my Thyroid ?
Any advice or help much appropriated.
