Hello everyone I hope you are all doing fine. First of all a very Happy belated Mothers day! I just wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem. In 2007 I had chronic heart failure, diabetes and other things. In 2011 I went through Breast Cancer and had
a Lumpectomy and thank the Lord I am still here to talk about it and thank him. Now after that
problem I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism which originally I had 30 years ago. I am
lucky to have another birthday this June, 2014 I will be 65 years young.
I now have the problem since 2012 my husband found a doctor that specifically specialized
in thyroid, he gave me medication and slowly since 2007 I was losing weight and as of Sept.
2013 I was tipping the scales at 130 pounds. But that was short lived my physician I was
seeing had to retire so I went to another doctor and he upped the dosage of synthroid and
since November of 2014 I have gained 20 pounds and after researching I found out it
can becaused from the thyroid medication. I also have bloating in my stomach when I lost all the weight my stomach was flat and no skin was hanging, even the doctor was amazed and it turned out that the hypothyroidism was the thing that made me become a diabetic. Does anyone else have this problem or any suggestions.
