Am I the only one who when taking a lower non leveled dose was losing more weight than when it "leveled out?". I'm stuck in a rut and the doc is persistent it's normal.

    I have gained 70lbs since taking levo 🧐 I’ve been doing a bunch of research since my doctor keeps saying everything is normal and I know it’s not! I found this video abs cannot verify is scientific accuracy but it makes a lot of sense and in the comment section tons of people share similar experiences. I am going to ask for an rT3 test https://youtu.be/-W0jncFcZr8

      I lost 45 pounds will going up. Once he stopped incline I've fell face first in losing weight. I gain if I go to the gym. I'm so frustrated they won't listen. Sometimes not right. What does the rT3 test test for?

        hmm yeah I’ve only gained weight with meds. 🤦🏼‍♀️ rT3 stands for reverse T3 which bonds to the T3 receptors in the same way but is inactive. So it can mess things up if our T4 is converted to rT3 instead of T3. That video explains it too

    75 mcg is normal initial dose. My Endocrinologist Dr upped my dose to 100 mcg to help with weight loss. Ask to see an Endocrinologist. They specialize in thyroid disorders and diabetes. They can help with weight loss too.
