    Unwanted weight loss despite hypothyroidism

    Based on results from blood tests, I am diagnosed with hypothyroidism. In March my measures were: T4 = 0.6, T3 = 2.4, TSH = 12.4. My doctor put me on thyroid grandular (and andernal glandular for stress) supplements. Each month my blood tests show "improvement". In June my measures were: T4 = 1.0, T3 = 2.5, TSH = 4.8.

    I have a small tumor that I want to treat naturally. In February, I went on a vegetarian diet and stopped cardio exercises. I unexpectedly lost 12 pounds in 1 month. I was a very "fit" person (triathlete). I had very low body fat to start with. Much of the 12 pounds lost was muscle mass. I realized I was eating too few calories. In response, I started increasing my calorie intake. I am now consuming 2,800 - 3,200 calories per day. I am exceeding macros and micros across the board. Yet, I am still losing a pound or so per week.

    I stopped taking the grandular supplements today hoping that my weight will stabilize. Regardless, what the heck is going on? Why am I losing weight while eating a lot of great food and still having mild hypothyroidism?

    Sorry to be blunt, but...a tumour? And you want to treat it naturally? What kind of tumour, and what does your doctor think about it? Cancer is no joke. Your weight loss could be related.
