Wilson Temperature Syndrome

Friday, September 25, 2009

I have been average size for most of my adult life 140-150lbs until I started taking the Depo shot and I went from 145 to 220 and have had problems losing that weight and keeping it off. Once I weened myself off of the shot, i started on yo yo diets and managed to lose the wt but gain it back. I've done the diet pills, lost 35lbs, but also gained it back and I always had an active lifestyle, but couldn't figure out why the wt wasn't going anywhere. So here just recently, my dr told me about the WTS which is basically a thyroid problem. The WTS is determined by your body temperature, which is 98.6, so for one month, I had to chart my temperature 3x's a day and multiply it by 3 to determined my daily temperature, which was always below 98.6, so therefore I was a canidate for WTS..I researched it and found that out of about 60 symptoms, i had about 55 of them..During all of my annual checkups, never did my Dr. mention the possiblity of me having a thyroid issue, it took a diet dr to determine that I could have WTS. The best way to decide if you have WTs, ask your dr to check you for it, this could be the reason for not being able to lose the wt we so much desire to lose...There are herbal supplements that they sale on the site, but i'm pretty sure, you could find one in a local GNC or health food store, but I would suggest seeing a dr first, that way he can prescribe you something. The herbal supplements are just something to boost your metabolism. I myself, have started taking Vitamin B or B12..they are known to help boost your metabolism and energy level...I hope this have been a big help to you..If so, let me know!!!!
