Hello everyone -
I was dx with Graves a little over 2 months ago. Had lost about 15 pounds (which I totally needed to do). Have been on 50mg of Toprol and 30 mg of Tapazole daily. Just had my Tap lowered to 20 mg per day since my levels are now low, which I'm assuming hyPO? Anyway, I have gained about 20 pounds in the last 2 1/2 weeks or so! It's out of control! Is this b/c I'm hypo, b/c of the meds, what?! I can't keep on adding weight like this. Went to the cardio and am now cleared for excercise, so I'm going to start that, but it's scary how fast I'm packing on the pounds!!!
If you have any ideas or suggestions I am open. Going on vacation this weekend and can't imagine putting on a swim suit!
