Smile Thyroid hunger and bloating since quitting smoking

Hi,

Has any one quit smoking and there under active thyroid has got worse?

I quit five months ago and my stomach is getting increasingly bloated
I'm hungry and thirsty all the time,

I was on 75 mg of thyroxine
Now I am taking more starting today to see if conditions improve,
Tests have always said normal although goitre is present sometimes

Thanks

Re: Thyroid hunger and bloating since quitting smoking

Hi and welcome. I'm no doctor (huge understatement) but I believe thryoid meds can take awhile to calibrate, that it can take time to achieve good results. My sister (Hashimoto's) and several close friends have gone thru this.

But I'd discuss excessive thirst with my doctor PDQ, to see if other tests are needed, if not done or not done recently. (Blood glucose, for one?)

Have you tried the Thyroid Disorders board? In the blue bar above this board's title, select "Find A Board"; on the screen appearing next, select the hyperlink that sort results into alphabetical order. NOT that you're not welcome on this board---of course you are---but that the people there should have more specific personal experience to share, is all I mean to say.

I hope this helps a bit, and that others who have thoughts will chip in, too.

With my warm wishes, sincerely, Vee
