Re: how to lose weight while taking methimazole

Hi! If you've been on meds this long you're probably in the hypo range which can cause weight gain. I have been on meds for over 2 years and have gained about 7 pounds. I notice if I go to the hypo range i will gain. Find out what your labs look like and post the numbers and we'll be able to tell you. Sometimes you get in a habit of eating a lot before going on meds because being hyper makes you so hungry.
