Hasimoto's - Hypothyroid

Postby louise677 » Thu May 24, 2007 7:18 pm

Hello,
I went to the doctor today to get some blood test results and have been diagnosed with Hasimoto's thyroidihs (hypothyroidism).
Was wondering if anyone else on the forum has it?
Was told I would be put on some pills (although sounds like a life long thing) and it would make weight loss a lot easier :D
I hope so!
Anyway, just wondering if anyone out there has this or knows much about it?

your thyroid helps control your metabolism. In hypothyroidism it doesn't work properly and your metabolism slows down making it very difficult to lose weight. Iodine is required for proper tyroid function - which is why I take kelp tablets, but I have heard that you shouldn't take these with thyroid medication (ask your GP). FYI iodine deficiencies was one of the main culprits for thyroid goiters - those big lumps on the neck people in the olden days got. That's why these days iodine is added to practically everything. Problem in Aus is that our soils are relatively old and not very high in iodine which means most of our produce is low in iodine too, so most Aussies could do with an iodine top up I've heard.

BUT the medication will not make you lose weight by itself - you still need to exercise and eat properly etc.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi, I have a thyroid condition and also Hashimotos (this is an anti immune deficiency disease) google it and have a read because it is easier then me explaining it to you here. It does make losing weight hard and I am on medication (150mg thyroxine) for the rest of my life. And I agree with the Iodine - you cannot have too much of that. You can pm me if you want to talk about it.
