You need to get optimal. What is your levels including Free T4, Free T3, B12, D, Iron, have you watched eating goitrogens, are you timing your meds away from fiber, calcium, iron, and so forth? Some of us keep notebooks. Keeping a record of your activity, what you eat, and a list of your top ten thyroid symptoms on a daily basis may be what you need to prove to your doc you are not optimal. My odd thyroid symptoms? Acne in my hair and plantar fascitis. When these show up I need more med!
Remember, this isn't an instant fix. You need to learn to read your body and find what works for you!
Some of us have gone paleo....high amounts of carbs are not a friend to thyroid peeps. My diet looks different than most. 40% fats and protein and 20% carbs. I rarely eat grain anymore. Clean up your diet...get rid of the junk, go as organic as you can and you'll see it start to creep off. Remember, it didn't show up overnight....it won't go away any quicker. We have a harder time of it but it is possible!
