Dark Stranger........

I went from a 7 to a 14 in one year.........I was tired, depressed and I knew something was wrong......I have battled my weight and energy since then........I have been on thyroid meds for over a year and really it made no difference for me. I have to diet to keep from going upward....very very frustrating.......I did however finally lose 20 pounds on the South Beach diet. I was so hoping when I go on my thyroid meds I would drop my weight back down but it did not happen.

Something you might want to check.......I just recently was diagnoised with Insulin resistance........the Doctor felt my symptoms were more due to that than thyroid.........I disagreed but I have to tell you since I have been on this medication I do feel better.......Much better.........and I can eat more normal without gaining weight.......

He did a fast insulin and 2 hour GTT insulin and glucose.......and my fasting was normal and my 2 hour was sky high..........Insulin resistance.....

I am on Janumet twice a day now.........I took it reluctantly but I have to admit I am better and am in a size 12 and moving downward.

I think it is a combination of thyroid, blood sugar, aging and pre menopausal hormones..........and the fact that I move around less than I did a few years back.......I have to exercise daily.

I hope this helpful for you......Oleander
