Need your help on....synthroid 112mg

Hello all,

I have detected with hypo-thyroid and here are report details:

Cholestrol: 209mg/dl>>>> required was <200.
HDL: 47mg/dl>>>> required was >50
Triglycerides: 236mg/dl>>>> required was <150
Direct LDL: 148mg/dl>>>> required was <100.

I am 27yrs old, 5.4ft in height and weigh 180 pounds.

My dr prescribed me synthroid 112mg daily first thing in morning and asked to me do exercises to loose some weight. But while reading online about the side effects of synthroid 112mg I read most negative things like headaches, joint pains, bloating, weight gain, irregular periods (which I am currently suffering from) etc.

I am confused what to do now???? Of course I will talk to my dr about this and but your precious opinion has always been helpful.

My questions:

1. Shall I take those tablets?
2. What type of diet plan shall I follow to cure this thyroid?
3. What are the chances of getting pregnant if tried? Will it be healthy pregnancy?

Please help.

Sasha.

Re: Need your help on....synthroid 112mg

I take synthroid 112 to. it does work. I dont know of any side effects from synthroid. I feel so much better on it.

take the tablets. atleast try it for a month. it might take 2 weeks to a month for the meds to work. also take them 1 or 2 hours before you eat breakfast.

there is no way to fix this without meds.

Re: Need your help on....synthroid 112mg

Synthroid doesn't really have "side effects" it is not a drug, it's a replacement of the hormone your body should be making, but doesn't, most of the "side effects" you are describing are from having too much or too little hormone in your system (a poor dose) not from synthroid or the T4 hormone itself.
