Does anyone with hashimotos get very tired after they eat even if it’s not a lot?

      @Pushky Yep! I have tried the diet thing but it didn’t help me at all.

      Mine isn’t after I eat, I am just tired all the time. It is a symptom I have been battling (along with weight gain) since I was diagnosed. Doctors all say the same thing about how my levels are normal and maybe I should try changing my diet. It is beyond frustrating.

        @Shelbym My doctor says the same thing. Yet I eat very little and most of it is vegetables. Very frustrating

      Getting sleepy after eating sometimes is related to your blood sugars.. have you been tested for diabetes or pre-diabetes?

        @Julz4me Thank you for that thought. I am not diabetic but my number is close to begging stage. I wonder if it helps to eat a smaller portions at each meal. I mostly eat vegetables and some protein.

      They always say I'm normal within range but the range is so huge!

      Yes! I always get tired after I eat. I do not overeat for fear of gaining weight. And I am always hungry and tired too. When I bring it up to my endocrinologist (thyroid doctor), he always tells me my levels are normal and hunger and tiredness have nothing to do with my thyroid. I have a hard time believing him.

        @Pushky I agree with you I ate a 1/2 sandwich and I immediately got tired I’m afraid to eat alot too.. even though our levels are “normal” we still get symptoms the meds help us for all important body functions but I still get very bad achy days like I’m coming down with the flu I call them “ bad thyroid days”

          @Mamma_Maria I get a lot of aches and pains and I am not sure if they are Hashimoto’s related🤷‍♀️
