I have been diagnosed with having a hypothyroid and have been taking levothyroxine for 6 weeks(75mcg's) - how long does it take to see relief with weight.I have gained 20 lbs and have only lost 5lbs since I have started the levothyroxine but my weight is still fluxuating- this past week I have been gaining again even though I still continue my diet and exercise routine.Is there any hope for weight loss?
I was dx'd with hypO in Jun 08 and with Hashi's in Oct 08. I was on synthroid until Jan 09, at which time I was changed to levothyroxine + cytomel. I have not been able to lose anything on either regimen.
I continue to watch my diet and exercise in hopes that one day I will be able to get rid of at least a small amount.
Don't give up. I'm told that when the thyroid levels are right, the weight will come off.
Thank You so much for hope!!!!! I would really like to give up at this point but I have always been a slender girl even after I had my son - I now have a daughter but The weight is just piling on...its very frusterating..but I will keep at it..
I have also resently been diagnosed with being hypo, I'm also on levothroxine. My hair it coming out by the handsful and I still haven't lost any weight. I've been reading alot about Armour, has anyone had any positive results with it?
