I'm sure this has been asked before but I am a person recently diagnosed with Graves disease brought on by Hyperthyroidism. My question is not so much about losing weight as a symptom of the disease but more so about how to do it.
I'm about 3 months into my treatment using methimazole and toprol xl. My blood tests show I may need a higher dosage but we are kind of in the wait and see how things go phase. Prior to my diagnosis I was at a healthy weight that I was holding down pretty well. Now that I'm on medication I've noticed a steady increase in my weight ever since then. It's only 15 pounds but from what I've read it may increase as my hormone levels calm down a bit.
So for those who've succesfully lost and or maintained their weight while coming down from hyperthyroidism, I ask for advive with exercises and diet that worked for you. I don't eat terribly and do get some exercise in everyday but goodness gracious I'm tired of gaining weight! Please help in any way you can.
