First time posting on here but a lot of the information is very confusing. I am from the UK,diagnosed in 2019 with Hypothyroidism and subsequently placed on Levothyroxin.
Started low and has been increased now to 200mcg. I have been on this dose for a few months now and soon due another blood test.
I am also type 2 diabetic. Currently on a low carb diet recommended by my gp, and intolerant to cows milk, wheat and eggs.
I excersise about 2 hours a day,swimming and taking my dog for a walk.
My weight is increasing gradually and can't seem to lose any,especially when I am mostly eating salads and chicken for my main meals.
Doctors are saying my bloods results are improving and diabeties has dropped a lot too.
my current symptoms are fatigue, weight gain and I am at a loss as to why.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Could anyone advise me on what my next steps should be please? 🙏
Even a good place to start doing some research would be good too. I am planning to speak to my gp again soon but I just feel like they don't care and just increase my dose. I feel like the medication doesn't do anything,i will take it first thing in the morning and avoid food and other medicines until an hour afterwards.
