I was diagnosed with graves diease 4 days ago and my doctor prescribed me with 30mg a day of carbimozole, I've been reading up on it and almost every person I've read about starting it has gained weight alot of weight.
I was over weight two years ago and I began to go the gym 5 times a week, and completely changed my diet, in order to lose the weight. I vowed I would never put it back on.
In the next month I am due to start testosterone as I'm female to male, I can finally have a normal life.... Well that's what I thought until I got put on carbimazole, so I now now I'm about to put on alot of weight at what's meant to be the start of a new happy me.
My questions are.... is there a way I can take carbimazole and not gain weight? Either by exercising or eating different? And also is there a different medication for graves disease that doesnt make you gain weight?
This is really getting me down any info would be great thanks.
