So much good info here. thanks! I'm awaiting change in drug dose. Blood test showed I need a change, but doctor still hasn't contacted me to help get everything back on track. Several values were off this time. I know I'll feel better when I'm back in sync with myself.

Becoming the healthiest me that I can be.

I had a total thyroidectomy and have been taking synthroid every since (with great results). I am also a working paramedic (so I kinda understand the inner workings a little better, I will try and explain). Your thyroid controls your moods and by doing that your "thoughts of suicide". Without a (thyroid) or without one working properly taking synthroid alone while adjusting your dose is not enough. Welbutrin or any other low dose anti-depressant works wonders with your synthroid. Since we are constantly adjusting doses because of the time of the year or as we age, you will never be at a constant mcg dose, therefore again most endo's suggest taking a mood enhancer to help balance your supplimented hormones. Synthroid as a medication does not alter moods. A lot of people get scared when anti-depressants are mentioned, I did too at first, but google can be your best friend when it comes to researching cause and affects.
I hope that helps a little...



Have a wonderful day fellow sparkpeople!!

I have Bi-Polar II and have been taking Levothyroxine for over 2 years now without any problems. Several years ago I was given a drug for my bi-polar that wasn't supposed to have side effects and I developed severe side effects from it. All I can say is that everyone reacts to medicines differently, but thanks for the heads up. emoticon

Just wanted to share some information about Levothyroxin. Not sure what caused this but I have done this twice so I know it is fact for me.
I was changed by government plan from Synthroid to Levothyroxin both times and each time this happened I dealt with confusion, thoughts of suicide, severe depression. At first I just figured I was depressed and went inpatient got medicated for bi-polar, PTSD, severe depression. I had bigger problems with the anti-depressions and found I just can not take them. I thought about why did this happen to me this last time when things were very well with me for the past 14 yrs then I thought about how I had to go back on Levothyroxin and guess what I got severe depression, thoughts of suicide, lack of concentration etc. I ask the doctor to please put me back on Synthroid and I am back on top again. Did this happen because Levothyroxin is more synthetic than synthroid or any one have suggestions as to why this happened exactly the same both times?
I have since listed Levothyroxin as an allergy medication and refuse to ever take it again. I have only been in this position twice in my life and both times this medication was involved. I gained weight while taking Levothyroxin too and have lost weight since a steady dose of Synthroid and watching what I eat. Love the list of foods makes sense why I crave these foods. Has any one bought the book or can share information about certain blood types should eat certain foods?

Thanks, for the information. The article didn't state raw or cooked.
Good to know cooking them makes a difference, since I never eat them raw

I have been reading everything I can get my hands on since I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism a couple years ago. I panicked when I saw that as well, they are among my favorite vegs, but from what I have read the problem with the Brassica vegs comes only when they are eaten raw or undercooked. If vegetables like those you mention are completely cooked they present no problems.

I am new here and have a underactive thyroid from rai due to Graves Disease in 2003. Please double check the list. I'm always researching thyroid problems to find answers. I read that eating vegetables like Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower and Cabbage leads to a lower thyroid output. These are my favorites unfortunately and i do eat a lot of them. I'm going to try not eating these and see if it makes a difference. Good luck to all!

My weight loss has been slow....extremely slow. But I have found that using the SP nutrition and meal planner you can build a daily diet that will help. Also the water is a key. Find a way to get your 6-8 glasses in. I have found that drinking a glass 15 minutes before I eat helps to curb my appetite and I fill up faster. I have also used alot of the WW techniques of fixing sugar free jello and pudding for dessert in small containers so I can treat myself without costing me lots of calories. I also keep carrot sticks, celery, apples and low fat graham crackers around for munching on if I get hungry midday.
Hope this helps.

Good morning. After fighting with my Dr. about trying something new I got here to give me a prescription of synthroid. I started on it instead of Levothyroxine (sp) about 8 days ago. I am not sure but I think I have a little more energy. Here is weird thing on the other meds I was beginning to have pain in my thumb joints, I figured it was arthritis, but this week it is tons better. I am still hoping to get another Endo who is more open to listening to me and my symptoms than looking at the blood test results only. Sandy

I had lost 16 lbs..but have regained about three or four. I know it is because I fell off the wagon and had sugar and gluten. I can blame it on emotional eating, but the end result is a stand still on my ability to keep loosing. Not giving up. But I still miss the days I could just loose ten lbs fast..lol
This group continues to inspire me, and I feel like I fit in, no matter my age. We all have the similar issues here:-) So glad I found this group.

Stand up for yourself and for others who are not as strong as you..always take a stand in what you believe to be the truth.

I am new to SP and join this forum although this is the first time of I have been on it. I have read a lot of the posts and found them very useful to me especially the list of foods which I too have copied around to my documents. To the lady (can't remember her name) who loses 2/3 lbs and then puts it on again I just want to tell her I was exactly this same and only found out when I changed my GP that I was glucose intolerant and heading towards type 2 diabetes, so maybe a blood check to check your glucose might be something to think about.

To all others of us who are struggling to remove the lbs, I want to tell you that I have eventually lost 14lb but it has taken me 7 long months, but hey it better than putting weight on. We will all keep up the 'good work' together and lose weight.

I have been doing Sparkpeople for about a month but haven't lost any weight yet. With thyroid issues, it seems to be very hard for me. Maybe I need to amp up my exercise. Some days I do slip and feel very guilty for it but everyone says its ok. I haven't bought the Spark book yet. I was wondering if that would help. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. emoticon

I also had 2/3 of my thyroid removed. I am on Levothyroxine. It is a generic drug for Synthroid. Weight is very difficult to lose. If you stick to Sparkpeople and follow their plan, the weight will come off but very slowly. This is what they recommend anyway. Good Luck and don't give up.

I also had half my thyroid removed in 2000 and am on thyroxine(msut be the equivelant of the American brand) and I find it hard to lose weight, but it is like one step forward and sometimes 2 back, but it is a struggle and will just keep striving to lose the excess weight. Good luck to all the newbes and you are on the best team for support and information.

I am new and I have had thyroid issues for the past three years. It is nice to have an on-line community to share our experiences with our thyroid problems. My thyroid issue is nodules. I went through three biopsies before I ended up having the right-side of my thyroid surgically removed. Now, new nodules have shown up and the Dr. is monitoring them every six months. I don't feel good most of the time, I am tired and have low energy. My hair is very thin and does not grow like it used to. I am on levothyroxine and it was recently increased after I gained 11 pounds in six months. I never knew how important the thyroid was until I started having this problem. Losing weight is very difficult, but I am determined to do it.

Hello.

I have an under-active Thyroid which makes it impossible for me to lose weight. My DR. prescribed Eltroxin (0.1mg). I've been using it for two weeks now. I haven't seen any drastic changes to my weight. A lady I know lost 20KGS in two weeks.

Is there anyone who is using or has used Eltroxin?
What can I do to lose the weight at a faster pace?

I have a meal plan worked out by the DR. and I've been following that.

I'd really appreciate some help.

Thanks!

I have been on Synthroid since 1991. My weight and everything was fine. Then, two years ago my mom passed away and I stopped taking it. Nonetheless, I gained twenty pounds. Someone told me to have my thyroid retested again and ask my doctor about Armour. I found a family doctor that prescribed the Armour. I took for about a month. I did have more energy but started having mood swings and really bad muscle cramps in my legs. Now, I am seein and endo. who talked to me about both Synth. and Armour. He said in the long run, Armour could have a negative affect on the liver. He said I was welcome to stay on it. I decided to switch back to synthroid and feel alot better. I haven't lost any weight yet though. Still trying. Good luck whichever one you choose.

Hey everyone! I came back to let you all know how the endo appt went. He was mentoring a student Dr. So I was sort of a test dumbie lol.He did an ultrasound of my thyroid while i was in the office. When it was done he went over each picture and explained what I was looking at. According to him I never needed the biopsy in the first place. Which upset me. There wasn't a nodule like the radiologist thought but actually inflamation that a more experienced person like himself would of been able to tell the difference. He said that i have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and the pics are a perfect picture of what it would look like.I won't have to see a specialist again unless something drastic changes. My Primary Dr. can handle the adjusting of my meds as needed. I'm thinking of discussing the Armour drug with her and seeing if it's a better option for me.
Thank You all for your kind words, you all are great :)

Hello, I am brand new to Spark just joined today ! I am very excited to find this forum. I have been fighting thyroid issues for almost 4 years now. My doctor found a nodule on my thyroid when I was 7 mths pregnant with my youngest child.After many inconclusive biopsys they decicided to take it out 1 month after I delivered, which made it impossible to lose the baby weight, here I am still carrying it 4 years later. Its very frustrating, my levels always come back normal but I do not feel normal at all ! Right now I am on 175 mcg, I'm very tired & very irritable. This site has given me a new ray of hope, I look forward to finding out new tips & tricks ! Thank you emoticon

I am new to Spark, and have enjoyed ready the posts on this topic!! I have been hypo since I was 12 and I have struggled with my weight my entire life. As I read some of the posts, I was excited to hear about Armour and will certainly be asking my Dr. about that. I was actually really excited to hear of it. I have been on Levothyroxin and I just don't see that it works like it should. I am constantly tired and my hair falls out, my nails and skin are so dry. I will definitely be doing my research on this natural method. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that my Dr. will allow me to try it. emoticon

i am on a plateau right now and it is a challenge to get past the weight i am at currently. i will not give up. having an underactive thyroid makes it harder to lose extra weight and easy to gain extra weight. i will continue to take my synthroid at night, when i am ready to go to bed.this seems to help me have more energy during the day.

I had a doctor one time that said he couldn't help me with natural thyroid because he didn't know anything about it. Finally he said that if I would let him know what the dosages are for natural thyroid, he would write me a prescription. That was back when computers were just finally becoming available for personal use. So I got on the computer and researched it, gave him the information about it being measured in grains instead of Mg....and he ordered it for me. So sometimes you have to take the extra effort to educate the doctor to get what you want/need.

I totally know what you mean. I was on synthroid for 5 years and gained weight consistantly and felt tired all the time. At first I thought it was because I was getting older, but then I thought, hey, I am only 27, I should not feel this way. I looked for a thyroid specialist who do a lot of thyroid tests, and it turns out that my T3 hormone was completely low. Regular doctors only test THS, but he checked THS, T3, T4 and others. Sometimes if you take a synthetic hormone the THS turns out just fine, but in all reality the other tests that are not taken are not fine. You should do your research and check out a doctor near you the specializes in thyroid, you will not regret it!

I have an appointment on July 13 to get my levels retested and talk to a nutritionist. I am going to ask my doctor about switching to a natural synthroid. This med doesn't really seem to be working, and i have given it 5 years.

I did not turn out how I thought I would in high school, I turned out better...

I just went to an antiaging specialist who is also a thyroid specialist and he switched me from snythroid to Nature throid (which is basically like armour) So far I have been on it for a month,and I have felt more energy than I have in a long time. It is great!

I just found out this week that not only do I have to have to seperate calcium from when I take my synthroid, but also fiber. This is probably why you need to take the synthroid on an empty stomach. I have been setting my alarm clock for 1 hr. before I plan on being up, get up, take my pill and go back to bed. That way, when I "wake" up, I can have breakfast right away. It works for me :)

I did not turn out how I thought I would in high school, I turned out better...

I believe that most weight fluctuations during the day are based on the amount of fluids your body takes in. You may weigh less after using the restroom and more after drinking water or eating water filled foods like veggies. I think what you are experiencing is completely normal. That is why some experts say not to weigh more than once/week.

Thank you for the link. I have saved it to my favorites. I suspected most of these good hints and issues to be true, but never found proof, until I came here. I have done well without sugar or gluten. Fell off the wagon on Friday night dinner at my work place. I foolisly tried the differernt international meals I helped make for my YMCA camp. Just from eating gluten and having the dessert, I was bloated by morning, an increase of nearly five lbs. Live and learn. I should know better, but guess I needed the reminder..that I can not eat like I once did.

Stand up for yourself and for others who are not as strong as you..always take a stand in what you believe to be the truth.

Having read this thread I'm going to my GP to a)ask for a recomendation to an endocrinologist, b) ask about nutrition as it affects my thyroid (esp. absorption) and c) ask about Armour.

I got this from this blog and thought maybe it has not been posted in a while so I thought I would share it again.... I find if I stick to it's recommendations and of course with my medication - I do fairly well - can't seem to shed the few pounds and keep them off but I have not gained a lot either -
hope it helps someone -

I can do anything through Christ, who gives me strength!

No, it has less side affects because it's natural. A 3 month supply is about $24 without insurance. Dr's claim it is inconsistent, but they talk about how they test every batch on their site, so I don't even think that's true. Armour also has both T3 and T4.

Why are these doctors so against Armour? Does it cause some other problems? Is it a lot more expensive?
