hi
beside thyroid and diet,ur gene and heredity play role
so if any of ur family member is obese ,then u can gain wt
age also be a factor
as u grow old u r metabolism change.
so we can not compare with early year diet.
do exercise and avoid oil in food
be healthy ,eat healthy

Dear Neha,During pregnancy and even before conceiving it is advisable that you consult an endocrinologist.You will need regular monitoring of your thyroid status during pregnancy may need frequent dose adjustments so he will be helpful.You need to do regular exercise in order to reduce weight.Some hormonal abnormalities other then thyroid can also lead to increase in weight.Bye and all the best.

I am 31 years old and TTC for about 7 months, after 4 months of trying I was sent for a blood test were my thyroid came back 5.22 I was told to see a reproductive endocrinologist not to waste time, but can not get the coverage by insurance so I opted for a regular endocrinologist. I was told by my aunt that all the women on my mothers fathers side have thyroid issues that they take medication for. I was put on synthroid 25mcg by my regular pcp and referred to the endocrinologist he sent me for new blood work and after looking at my old bloodwork advised me that I have hashimotos. I never even heard of it before and maybe have 3 symptoms I can recall. My recent bloodwork aft 4 weeks of 25mcg showed thyroid at 7.2 he has upped the anti to 75mcg of the generic ( leve....something ). He seems confident if I get my thyroid under control I will get pregnant on my own. Have you ever dealt with a situation like this or are familiar with? I also just started juicing with a nutribullet but am nervouse there may be things I should stay away from, my endo told me do whatever I want. I m just looking for some answers and am not sure if I should persue a reproductive endocrinologist?

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
