I am a 28 year old male with no family history of underactive thyroid.
I was started on LevoThyroxine Sodium (Eltroxin) about 2 years ago and I have piled on about 7 stone (44.5kgs/98lbs) and my body is ruined with LOADS of stretch marks!
I have read a lot about people gaining weight from their hypo meds and this has to be what's causing mine.
I admit that my diet is not good and I should exercise more, but c'mon... 98lbs!
I can litterally feel my skin stretching at times!
I am on alternating 100mcg and 125mcg's every other day which I thought was a lot...
I have heard others saying they were on anywhere from 25 to 100mcgs each day but the docs told me my thyroid is kinda producing some hormone.
I need to change my meds and not just eat cleaner and exercise more.
I have not changed my eating and exercising habits much from what it was prior to my thyroid packing it in and the docs say my levels are being managed well...
I feel depressed and am disgusted with my body!
I look like a woman who blew up during pregnancy... my stomach is ruined!!
