    I dont whether its Thyroid disease, or I'm just greedy!

    When I was youngerI had all the energy in the world. My parents cannot believe the difference in me today, from how I was when I was a child. At one point my parents thought something was wrong with me and my never ending energy levels God how I miss those days!!

    When I was 14 I remember spending the entire summer holidays in bed, depressed and basically spending hours and hours in bed watching TV. Then the weight started going on. Making me even more depressed. I was a healthy 13 stone for my 6 foot frame, as the years went by, I started gaining weight alot, it seemed every other day I was putting on weight. When I left school I went from 15 stone to 17 stone. and the weight just got worse and worse. Yeah I ate, but I didnt eat loads.

    When I see these shows like 'you are what you eat' and they show you how much some of these people eat, a whole table of fatty high carb/sugar food, they are eating about 10000 kcals a day/ and they weigh what I weigh. Something is wrong. When they get puton these diets by the diet mogul ask Gillian Mckeith, they lose masses of weight... Im on a calorie controlled diet and my weight loss is pathetic. I have lost 26 pounds since October. But I was weighing 23.3 stones!! I now weight 21.8 stone. (after putting on a massive 5 pounds in a week!!!) Yeah I haven't been following the diet but thats extreme isnt it?

    I'm determined to increase my daily activity, and Im determined to lose this weight, I want to be like I was before I left school. I really hope now im on the highest dose of Thyroid hormone ever, my weight becomes less and my energy becomes more!!

    Rant over, its time to get active...hopefully, I will have better news next week!!!

    That is nearly 2stone, in old money, since October, that I would have thought is plenty fast enough. You do not want to loose weight too fast otherwise it will affect your general health. Be patient it's going in the right direction. There will be ups and downs. Don't go out and do loads of exercise too soon, let that takes it's course. Lots of exercise means cells need oxygen, oxygen uses T3 and T4 to get around. More exercise more T3 and 4 used up.

    From what you say it sound as though you may have been a bit hyper as a child and possibly switched as an adolescent. This is exactly what we believe happened to our son.

    Regards

    David

    No wonder I couldn't stop yawning when I started going to gym regularly after a while. I've stopped it now but I just thought body didnt produce enough Cortisol to deal with the stress of the exercise.

    That is probably one reason why AD's don't work well with Hypo's. AD's work on the things like serotonin which is fired from the brain neurons. Neurons can't fire without oxygen and other things. So if you have insufficient T3 the brain won't work. Doesn't matter what else you give it.

    When you exercise too much you get stiffness. That's due to insufficient oxygen which creates a build up of lactic acid in the muscles. When you are hypo you also get insufficient oxygen and quite a lot of sufferers get stiffness in their muscles.

    Well that's the way I see it. It also explains to me why there are so many symptoms. I just don't understand why so many docs can't seem to understand. Or am I missing something. Don't forget I am not medically trained. So this is my view.

    all the best
