Discussions that mention synthroid

Weight Loss board


I don't have any luck losing weight so this thread caught my eye! But, regarding the thyroid..I found out I had an underactive thyroid when my obgyn was testing me for PCOS. I saw him yesterday for a check up and he said that thyroid problems will definitely hinder weight loss. I get mine checked every 6-8 weeks. I'll continue doing this until he sees consistent results on synthroid for 3 months straight. Then I'll have to be checked every 6-12 months. I guess what I'm saying is it's a good idea to get it checked! :D
