Thyroid Problem No More

Sunday, October 09, 2011

So, this summer I found out that I had a thyroid problem! I had gained 15 pounds and it was all unexplainable. I was still working out exceptionally hard; I was sticking to my new way of eating...blah blah blah. My doc told me that she thought that I could control it by working out even harder and come back in 3 months. Well, I did just that, found out that I gained even more weight, BUT also found out that my thyroid problem was no longer a problem!!!

So, now I am working out somewhat hard to get my self back on track. I will let you know how everything is going.

    from one who has a thryoid problem sounds like yours did the shift , my does it all the time from hyper to hypo while on medications. My meds change anywhere from every month to every quarter (I never throw them out as I might be using again)
    Next time you see your doctor.. get not only TSH but T3 and T4, reverse T3 and 4, thryoid periodise and antibodies. what my doctors intially thought was normal turned out to be hasimoto's thyroid.. of every gland in the body this one is going to effect all the others... good luck

    I'm curious, how can a thyroid problem no longer be a thyroid problem? Unless it never was your thyroid that was causing the weight gain. Did your doctor test your thryoid levels and prescribe medication? Did your doctor retest you recently? You can still be hypothyroid and have your TSH level in the "normal" range.

    I'm hypothyroid, was diagnosed early 2010. I've been on meds ever since, and have had my doses changed several times, after subsequent thyroid testing suggested changes.

    As far as I know, the thyroid does not cure itself.

    Those dang thyroids are a bugger. It is a shame that they cause such havoc on the body, and it is never dropping weight, only gaining weight. A dear friend of mine gained 88 in 3 months and her Doctor finally listened to her and tested her thyroid, he passed it off as her being 'heavy' her whole life. So aggravating.. I'm glad you have control. Yea. emoticon
