Sounds like the common neglect by doctors to admit that lousy synthroid is not doing the job. Get on armour if you can get your doctor to climb down off the synthroid bandwagon, read Mary Shomon's book, and also if not armour, thyrolar may help, it has the boost of a bit of T3 in it, I think the root of all our problems, our systems are NOT converting the T4 from syn. into T3. Check out if synthroid has FDA approval.

: I found this to be far more informative than anything I have found so far. In fact, it gave me the impetus to seek out a doctor that would really guide me to improved health. I found a new doctor in March of this year. I was more than 50 pds over weight at that time and still suffering from all the symptoms you have listed in spite of the fact that I had been being treated for hypothyroidism for 3 years. My new doctor followed treatments to help restore adrenal function as well as supplementing synthroid. In 6 months I have lost about 20 pounds and, more importantly, I feel better than I have in years. I have the energy to do yard work, to exercise, to enjoy life. My skin, hair and nails look healthy again. I have my brain back, too.

: If your doctor is not treating you aggressively, find a new doctor, you do not have to suffer, there are treatments that will make you feel better and lose weight.

: Hi Endocrine disease sufferers,

: : I was treated for thyroid disease 6 years ago and have since had hypothyroidism. My weight has increased 20 pounds in 1 year and muscle fatigue is increasingly worse. My Endo ignores my pleas for any solution except for the 1200 calorie a day diet I was placed on that left me in a constant state of starvation(the diet never worked). The muscle fatigue is so severe that even typing this message is difficult. My new Endo is surprised that my dosage of Levothroid .175 increases every 6 months and still doesn't give relief to my symptoms. Hair loss, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, brittle nails are a constant, but its the fatigue and weight gain that are the worst. I thought that maybe if the so-called professionals can't help, then one of you can. If you have any current info or advice, I would be most grateful to have it. If any have tried homeopathic remedies, I would also be open to alternative tretment.

: : Thank you,

: : Bobbie
