Please help! I have hyperthyroidism and weight goes up and down. Lately it's going up. I'm working out consistently and eating right. What am I doing wrong?

How long have you had "hypethyroid"? Were just recently diagnosed? 5 years ago? All your life? Your doctor suggests this is the "cause" of your weight fluctuations. But, what if you've been living with these same thyroid hormone levels for the last 20 years?


My point is this. A healthy lifestyle is what it is. It's no different for a Chinese than it is for a Navajo Indian. An eskimo doesn't "workout" because he or she is overweight. He works out because it's essential for a healthy, non-hyperthyroid, lifestyle. In other words, whatever you decide to do or not do, take care of yourself, first. Because, you may have been "diagnosed", recently. But, you could have had the same condition when you were 5, in pigtails and had no weight problems. How would you know?
