    Gaining weight
    An_247389 posted:
    I'm a 42 year old female with hypothyroid. I also have 3 nodules. Supposedly my levels are good but I continue to gain weight. Has anyone found a diet that works??
    Yoggibear responded:
    This is only my opinion. I have had Graves for 15 years nnow. When my levels are "really" on then I can lose weight. If they are off "nothing" works. I run/bike over 100 miles a month and I run 5K races every month or two. I am currently ggaining weight. My thyroid levels read good but I do not believe them. I think there are a couple different tests. I'm asking for all the tests there are to be done because I have every symptom there is. I think just a little bit off makes a huge difference. However, best diet is in my opinion weight watchers but even that I can't always lose. It's an uphill battle. Good luck.
