    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Thyroidectomy - trouble losing weight
    avatar
    Kokomo556 posted:
    I had a complete thyroidectomy in 2005 to take care of a cancerous nodule, all has been well since then. However, even though I am on replacement hormone (synthroid) monitored by my doctor, I am certain this is making it very difficult for me to lose and keep off weight. I have no symptoms of low thyroid other than the inability to lose and keep off weight - I have even been working with a nutritionist! Has any one else had this problem?

    Synthroid is only one type of thyroid - T4. You should have your T3 checked. A naturopathic doctor can help you manage this better than a nutritionist.
