I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism (possibly Graves) in November 2009 with all the classic symptoms bar one. I didn't lose weight - in fact I've steadily put on about 4 stone. I've tried Weight watchers and got fed up with it because I lost 3lb in 6 weeks. I'm trying to exercise, but the aches prevent me from doing to much so I try to walk alot - all be it, very slowly! Does anyone know what I can do to help improve my situation, such as avoiding certain foods or something (already know about avoiding complex carbs) because I am sure that obesity is going to worsen my health.
