Hi Endocrine disease sufferers,
I was treated for thyroid disease 6 years ago and have since had hypothyroidism. My weight has increased 20 pounds in 1 year and muscle fatigue is increasingly worse. My Endo ignores my pleas for any solution except for the 1200 calorie a day diet I was placed on that left me in a constant state of starvation(the diet never worked). The muscle fatigue is so severe that even typing this message is difficult. My new Endo is surprised that my dosage of Levothroid .175 increases every 6 months and still doesn't give relief to my symptoms. Hair loss, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, brittle nails are a constant, but its the fatigue and weight gain that are the worst. I thought that maybe if the so-called professionals can't help, then one of you can. If you have any current info or advice, I would be most grateful to have it. If any have tried homeopathic remedies, I would also be open to alternative tretment.
