Please be very careful...whether or not one can take supplements to get off thyroid med. depends on WHY one is low-thyroid.

For instance, if one is low because of a destroyed or non-existant thyroid, one has to have thyroid med of some kind. Check with your doctor to be sure of your own special case. It never hurts to build one's immune system, and it may help you!

The thyroid forum on about.com has many archived articles that will help with weight control.
For me, giving up simple sugars and simple carbohydrates is the ticket. Many times low-thyroidism is accompanied by carb/sugar cravings that back-fire. Rather than to provide energy, they stay on the belly and other parts of the body!

An excelelnt book is The Thryoid Solution, which addresses emotional and dietary issues in thyroid illnesses. TF
