Does anyone know
If it would be okay to take the weight smart vitamins that contain the green tea in them or would it counter act with the thyroid? I am hypo/Hashi and am on 100mcg Synthroid. I am soo desperate to lose weight, this is soo depressing. I have known about my thyroid problem since last November and every time I go to the doctor my numbers are off so he keeps upping my dosage of meds. Also, I was gonna ask you guys,, I have heard all this talk about Armour med or taking a med called Cytomel along with the Synthroid. WEll, my doctor always just runs the T4 test and TSH. By what I have read , he should be checking both T4 and T3. HOw do I get him to do this? I go back for my checkup in Oct. and if my numbers are still off, I think I am gonna ask him to send me to a specialist. I am sooo sick and tired of this controlling my life and being overweight. I have felt a bit better on the 100mcg Synthroid,, ( I need a nap about 4 x a week rather than every day, lol) but still irritable a lot, can't shed a pound, my face is all broke out with tiny red bumps/pimples especially around the mouth and nose area, not to mention losing my hair,, ( I find it everywhere) I have been on the higher dosage of Synthroid (100mcg) for about a month now. Is that long enough for it to kick in? I don't know,, Im desperate here guys. Thanks for letting me ramble, I have had a bad day,,, I went shopping and trying on clothes and nothing fit,,, so depressing.
