No I don't think you are whining. That is what this team is for, I think. My doctor finally agreed to refer me to endocrinology. More tests and in the meantime I have gained 5 more pounds. I am really frightened because I may develop diabetes because of this weight gain. I keep doing what I am supposed to do and pray that once the additional tests are done that they may see the need to adjust my medication.

Never Explain. Your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe it anyway. So whatever you are, be a good one.

I too agree that to find the Doctor that really listens is very difficult. In two weeks or a little less, I am going back to my endrocrinologist that I saw two years ago. She seemed better but I have read recently that an endocrinologist may not be the best for Hypothyroidism struggle seems more difficult this time around than before. I had lost 11 pounds and have put back on a pound. I know that does not sound like much but for 99% of the time I write down everything I put in my mouth.(good and not so good) I am going to the gym on average of 5 days a week and lifting weights on off days. It is so very hard to keep optimistic when minor deviations shows up on the scales. And too, even though I have lost 10 pounds the clothes do not fit any different!
Sorry for all this whining! I still feel healthy and look and listen to people 15-20 younger than me and I know I am in better health.

Don't give up! Keep fighting until you find a doctors that will listen to you. My doctors look at my blood tests and tell me I am normal. They do not even look at me or hear me. I am currently in the middle of trying to convince my doctors that I need to have my medication (synthroid) adjusted. I am exhibiting all the CLASSIC signs of Hypothyroidism. My weight has steadily crawled up and I now fluctuate between 210 and 225 pounds. My doctor keeps trying to convey to me that it is my fault and that I am not doing my part(exercise, diet, strength training) in order to lose weight. So they send me to nutritionists, recommend that I exercise more. Keep fighting...It is your health. I am beginning to realize that most doctors don't pay enough attention to the updates in treatment of the thyroid. I am going to keep fighting until someone hears me and understands. I am now on the verge of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, I have high blood pressure and if these doctors could only understand that my hormone needs to be adjusted my world would be a lot better. By the way, I am seeing doctors at the Veterans Hospital and the military base where I live and it is hard to get referrals when they do not believe you. But I am not giving up, you should not either.

I just signed up and wanting some help. I have been taking my medication, counting calories, eating well and walking 30 minutes a day and the scale is not moving at all.

This is so depressing

Has anyone heard of Dr. Michael L. Johnson D.C., D.A.C.N.B

He wrote this book and can be downloaded for free. There seems to be a lot of good information. Would like to know your thoughts.

I will go over there and look around. I'd like to do more, if there is more that I can do, to alleviate what Hashimoto's does to my body. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing the resource. Looks like they have groups on many different topics and health conditions. Should be great for people who are dealing with health conditions that are not covered here or who need additional info or support.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Over one year ago I joined the following site. It offers support to all types of conditions including Hypothyroidism. I have looked through the blogs and the help is quite good. Have a look and see if you want to join. In the Hypothyroid team there's over 1,000 members.

P.S. I go under the name Esil912.
