Does anyone have trouble gaining weight with their hypothyroidism?

      Insulin resistance I'm pretty sure I'm there.

      Helping your doctors wallet,that's why he wanted to keep you on it. Help him not you ( sorry about that not intending to offend anyone)

      I had a recent visit to my endocrinologist and asked her what could I do to gain weight….she told me my thyroid levels were as perfect as they could get and if I wanted to gain she could change my milligrams on my medication which would throw my levels out of wack. She mentioned she didn’t want to do that, so I guess I’m just stuck with not being able to gain. I also have a newborn so maybe it’s just stress🤷‍♀️

      For me it's harder to lose than gain. I don't have the best of diets right now because of my living situation.

      If my meds are off I tend to gain weight, otherwise I just maintain. I'm also going through menopause which makes losing weight a little harder.

      No appetite. Levothyroxine side effects?

      I can't lose it! Driving me crazy! My medication is supposedly one that is going to curb my appetite. I'm still waiting. I feel like I'm constantly either gaining or losing, but mostly gaining. I thought meds were supposed to help balance a whole mess of symptoms but I don't feel like it's doing anything and I've been on it for 2 years. I had a blood panel done maybe 6 months ago and the doctor wanted to keep me on the same meds because it was helping...I'm so confused!

      I've been diagnosed with pendulum ing hashimotos and graves disease . The go back and forth. I also have thyroid eye disease. Apparently it's rare,with the having both diseases. I didn't get the skinny part with the Graves disease. My meds don't work and I'm worried that I got diabetes from my medication. I'm super sick all the time,I don't have any energy ever. Finding an endo doctor that k knows how to address these diseases is impossible it seems. Sorry to sound so negative but I'm super scared it's going to cause me to die. I would love to find a clinical trial anyone ever hear of this?

        @MiaMama same here and I’m not sure why that is….mostly everyone I know who is hypothyroidism has trouble losing weight, but it’s completely opposite for me.
