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.
