Hungry after having a meal

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism 7 month ago. After taking Carbimazol my thyroxine values normalised. My endo gradually reduced the dose (30mg) and right now I am on 5mg per day.

It seems to me as if gradually the feeling of extreme hunger and restlessness are returning. (I went for another blood test yesterday but the results are not yet in.) 

The annoying thing is that I seem to get even more hungry after a (substantial) meal. My stomach is still full and I am hungry at the same time.

Should I just ignore it to break the cycle or is my body craving something it does not get?

    Maybe you need to look into nutritional supplements. I know many people with hyper thryroid have good results with L-Carnatine. I might give that a try myself. I spoke to my doctor and she recommended starting on a low dose then increasing if necessary.

      Hi

      I hope it improves things for you.

      BTW are you taking anything else with it.

      Let me know how you do. Lucy

      Thanks MCamp. I've been taking L-Carnitine for 6 month following the advise of Linda, another user on this forum.  I think it also helped me with regard to muscle recovery. After being hyper my legs, arms, and shoulders were very weak and sore.
