It can take quite a while to balance out those hormones, but TSH and T3 T4 need to be screened individually, lets hope the doctor didn't just look at the TSH and T4 in a basic lab test? Go to an endocrynologist and get a FULL screening just to ease your mind. It will be worth it.

I had a partial thyroidectemy, but never been to an endocrynologist, I can't afford it right now, but since I've been losing weight, I'm probably okay I guess.

Here's an article you might find helpful:

Do you change your exercise routine frequently? After about 4-6 weeks of doing the same thing all the time, your body starts to get used to it and the activity isn't as much of a challenge. So it's important to vary your routine, and I'd also recommend adding strength training 2-3 times per week if you're not already.

Hope that helps,

I had a thyroidectomy about 18 months ago because of thyroid cancer. In the aftermath I've gained about 20 pounds, which I am now trying hard to lose. Recent tests show that all my hormones are within the normal ranges, but I am unable to lose any weight. I've been tracking carefully and keeping at around 1300 calories a day and I get about 45 minutes of exercise (elliptical or stationary bike) 4-5 times a week.

What can I do to make the scale budge? Fewer calories? More exercise? Or both?
