    Re: why can't I build muscle with Graves Disease

    If your graves is well controlled, you should be able to. When you're hyper, it's very difficult to build muscle because your metabolism is going so fast, it's borrowing fuel from every place it can find. Muscle makes easy fuel. It can be broken down and turned into sugar which your body then burns.

    A controlled thyroid and a diet high in protein and carbs is what you need. Combine that with proper exercise and your muscles will start to return.
