Constant Extrem Hunger-

Does anyone else have extreme hunger?  I have the Hashitoxosis , I thought maybe I was having trouble with low/high blood sugar too, so I bought a monitor to check. Al normal, but If I don't eat every 1 1/2 to3 hours I actually get shaky, sick, and thoughts go haywire. Right now I think I'm more in a hyper state but wondered if anyone else has this extreme hunger? (pretty much no refined sugar in my diet right now)

Thanks

  Boy do I get hungry!!!  I have to eat every few hours too. I've limited that eating to fruit or low cal protein bars. Thankfully I haven't had a weight gain.

   This past week I was soooooooooooo hungry at lunch time I had to eat an entire meal. If i didn't i became shaky and foggy. Needless to say I haven't been hungry at dinner.

   Anyhow- you are not alone!


  Best Wishes`

Same here.  I had a TT(due to papcan) in Jan 07 did the RAI in Mar and now even if I skip a meal I get the same way and was never like that before.  I could go hours and almost a whole day and still not feel like that until I had this little bugger taken out of me.  Things to make you go hmmmmmm....

Cheers,
Scott

Me too! (TT 11/30/06)   I'm always wanting to snack - but not so bad if I have a low GI meal.  And don't get in my way or delay meal times - the hunger monsters emerge and I get very short and irritable.  
While I agree with Roman that our metabolisms have changed, once we are optimised on replacement therapy that should correct itself - as then the body should (theoretically) know now difference between thyroid hormone from self or replacement.  
Even before the TT I know I am worse in the cooler seasons when it comes to being hungry all the time.  And when stressed!  Currently dealing with both!  
It's nearly lunchtime now... mmm....

I am the opposite: The more hyper I go on the TSH levels the less appetite I have .. I have found myself not eating lunch bcz I haven't been hungry .. once food is in front of me I eat but no real appetite to dig in ?????? Weight is the same so far,
