What are your experiences on weight loss after stopping carbimazole? Were you able to lose weight and go back to your normal weight? And with what difficulty?
I’ve been on carbimazole for around 14 months, and I hopefully will be able to completely halt taking it next month, and all the weight I’ve gained has killed my self confidence. I’ve always been a very skinny person, even before the mass weight loss occurred prior to being diagnosed. I had always been an unhealthy eater, and boy could I eat, but I was somehow always skinny. Fast metabolism I suppose.
Once I began noticing weight gain, I started a healthier diet for the first time, not strict, but the healthiest I had ever done, and started exersizing very regularly. But it was impossible, and was still gaining. Eventually, my carbimazole dosage decreased and the weight stabilised.
Now I’m taking 1 tablet a day, and was told I should be able to stop completely next month.
I’m desperately hoping that once I stop taking carbimazole, my weight will go down to a level in which I’m not ashamed to remove my shirt with the help of a good diet, exersize and my very friendly metabolism.
