Wow , I can honestly relate to this post and many of the symptoms. I suffered with Hypothyroidism for years and was treated with a regular dose of Thyroxine. Unfortunately I developed a goitre which grew internally, pressed on my trachea and oesophagus causing difficulity breathing and digestion issues. One month ago I had a Thyriodectomy. The biospy showed Papillary Thyroid Cancer which is apparently common. The surgeon believes I am now cancer free. I will of course have to take Thyroxine and Calcuim medication for the rest of my life and also modifiy my dietary intake. Weight gain has been an ongoing issue, I am sure if I persist I will be able to deal that.

Its difficult to get clear answers about diet and weight loss for someone living without a thyroid gland. On the internet there a numerous sites but many have conflicting ideas. I have the added issuse of being gluten and lactose intolerant.

I recently had my blood drawn checking my T3,T4, etc . My levels are a tad bit low and I blame myself for not taking better care of myself when I found out years ago I was younger and didn’t really understand so I did not follow up. I am glad I am taking better care of myself now and I will be waiting for your next blog. ✨
