Hi all, I’ve been on Lio for 7 months now and put on a stone in that time. My body shape is also very different to how it used to be, others have noticed the difference in shape.
In case it’s relevant I’m male.
Is this common? My previous Endo (who started me on T3) didn’t have a clue and suggested I think about diet and exercise. So I bid him and his lazy backside goodbye.
My diet nor exercise levels have changed so the weight gain is puzzling.
My morning cortisol is higher now since starting T3 (has been very low for years), this has been beneficial as I can now wake up in the mornings without any trouble. However I wonder if the higher cortisol is contributing to weight gain?
Any other ideas will be gratefully received.
I’m seeing my new Endo for follow up with my results next week and want to have enough to challenge her on/suggest further testing.
