IS THERE EVER A CURE TO WHERE ONE DOESN'T HAVE TO TAKE SYNTHROID AND CAN DISCONTINUE. I HAVE BEEN TOLD I HAVE TO TAKE IT THE REST OF MY LIFE. I STARTED ON ON .001 AND NOW TAKE .03MG. I HAVE GAINED WEIGHT, CAN'T LOOSE IT, RETAIN FLUID, HAVE PUFFY EYES, SOMETIMES NIGHT SWEATS, AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. EVERYTIME I GO FOR CHECK UP - THE DOC UPS THE PRESCRIPTION.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE? I CAN'T STAND THIS WEIGHT? I AM 5'8 AND WEIGH242. FOR A FEMALE THAT JUST IS GROSS. I EVEN CONSIDERED DRASTIC GASTROINTESTINAL SURGERY, BUT WAS TOLD IT WOULD BE USELESS WITH THYROID PROBLEMS AND TAKING SYNTHROID. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
