Discussions that mention synthroid

General Health board


Hey, I am a 20 year old female. I have type 1 diabetes and hypothyroid. My HgB A1C has been 7% which is at a good level and my TSH was 1.0 which was also a good level. My questions is, I have been getting headaches, gaining weight about 40lbs in 2 years. I don't eat more then I used to 2 years ago and I exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I know my weight gain is not in muscle and is fat. I am also constantly tired or fogged out. My doctor just tells me to eat right and exercise and that "all my levels/blood work is fine" and according to the results they are all within normal and my blood pressure is good, its all good. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should do. I am not on birth control ( I know I am not pregnant) or anyother meds other than insulin for diabetes (but Ive been on that since I was 12 and maintained a steady weight until 2 years ago)and synthroid for my hypothyroid. Any suggestions would be great as my doctor doesnt seem to be helping me and being tired and gaining weight isnt that great for my self esteem especially when I have tried a lot to get back to normal.:confused:
