Supps to help with fat loss, for hypothyroidism?
11-09-2004 06:50 PM
Well I definitely agree that her diet is key, like I said I "tried" to redo her diet and while it has been giving "some" positive results, I've been listening to some guys and reading more trying to figure correct or incorrect things for someone w/ hypothyroidism to eat. Do any of you have suggestions in this area or sites which I could read? and when I say her diet, it's not really a "set in stone hour by hour" type diet her work and school make that hard. So it's kind of hard for me to post it, I do realize that a diet of guidelines will not work as well as an exact diet but I'm trying to work with what I got.
and also from what I've learned thus far I believe she is being underdosed on her meds. Which will mess everything up. But of course I'm no doctor and like I said she's going in sometime next month so hopefully they will fix that.
Thanks again guys this is turning out to be very informative!

Interesting you should say this. Here's a recently published abstract that suggests the appropriate dose of replacement hormone better correlates with lean body mass vs. overall body weight, which I assume is the common way dosages are determined.

May I make a suggestion, going to one dr, is good but if your still unhappy, get a second opinion, I cant tell you how many I have been to due to this.......Even the top thyroid surgeon in my state, a total jerk but the best, so we shall see what he says next week, frustrating yes, but I guess I am saying don't give up till you get all the answers...ya know? As far as advice on places to go for diets, someone wrote me an awesome diet,I can forward a copy..........
Eating as many times as i was told was also hard for me as well, due to teaching school and therapies in the Am with little ones, can't very well say hold on while i eat this......LOL
I will say your wife is lucky to have you helping her.......!!!!!
