Nothing Seems to Work...
Thursday, April 29, 2010
I have Hypothyroidism, Type 1 Diabetes, and Clinical Depression. I am 5 feet tall and I weigh 150 pounds. And nothing seems to work to lose weight. So, instead of just logging food and exercise, I decided I would try blogging. It did help a friend of mine who has lost 37 pounds!
What I believe to be my biggest problem in achieving weight loss is my thyroid. Due to shortages in desiccated thyroid over the past year, it has been very difficult to control. Even when readily available my numbers seem to fluctuate quite a bit. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to get my numbers checked again, since I have been on a steady dose for almost 2 months now, and it feels like it ls close to normal.
When my thyroid IS functioning normally, I then have to deal with a much stronger appetite. I have been really hungry lately and I feel like my thyroid is likely at a good level. Will see after my doctor's appointment tomorrow. I plan to ask him for a recommendation or prescription for an appetite suppressant (Meridia?). Wish me luck!
