chloesmom Posted January 15, 2005 Share Posted January 15, 2005 Hi guys, Well, it's just always something I guess, but this is not really a major concern. Had physical with my GP the other day and had all the blood work that goes with that. I was also telling him about my seeming inability to lose any weight despite the exercise and good diet. He added a thyroid function test onto the bloodwork, and lo and behold, my thyroid is slightly underactive and he wants me to take synthroid for it and follow-up in 4-6 weeks. Now, I feel kind of vindicated because, I'm telling you, I've made an honest effort at trying to lose weight, but nothing is happening here. I've done it before and I know what it takes, but this is ridiculous. Could also be the explanation for the brittle nails, dry hair and skin, sore muscles, and that sleepy feeling I have a lot of the time. I'm not complaining here, believe me, if all it takes to 'cure' this is a little pill once a day, that's great, and we've all been through much much more than this, but seems like I've seen some hypoactive thyroid discussion on this board before?? Anybody?????? Snowflake, was that you????? Any thoughts from anybody would be appreciated. Cindy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
