I recently had my levels checked again and they have stayed the same. So that is a good thing but I am having trouble lossing weight. I eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and exercise about 4 times a week but I am still having problems.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips about lossing weight.
It was just s TSH and the doc said he wanted to keep it in the range that it was. When I said about my weight, he basically said to join Weight Watchers.
Get a new dr. Any dr who would just test TSH and ignore your concerns even if the number was "in range", should be replaced. TSH tells very little. He needs to mostly be concerned with your free T3 an free T4 numbers above all. There's a sticky for how to find a good thyroid dr in your area.

I agree with the ladies' comments above. The doctor should def be checking more than just TSH. My doctor recommends gluten-free and soy-free (even products like Ritz crackers that have soy lecithin in them). I have did weight watchers last year and lost 28 pounds. I loved it! I think my levels were pretty close to the right range, and that made it easier to lose. Unfortunately, I gained the weight back, but it was because 1.) I got busy and stopped going to weight watchers, and 2.) I suspect my levels went crazy again, which caused my metabolism to slow way down again. So....starting over again. Hope you can find a system that works for you!
