Hello, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism almost 20 years ago when I was in my late 30s. Initially, before my diagnosis I had struggled with weight loss and/or maintaining my weight with exercise without any idea why I couldn't. My fatigue was horrible, I could hardly stay awake even after a full nights sleep and I was a mom of school aged children. After I saw my doctor, tests and a medication regimen with only instructions on when to take it, that was all I was given and to be honest I don't think they knew anymore information other than it's an autoimmune disease. Over the years since, I still struggle but I am more knowledgeable about what I should avoid also that exercise is important. I would like to hear from others who have tips and information from other community members.
