I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and started on a dose of Levothyroxine Sodium 25mcg. I also had an RMR test which showed my metabolism is 23% lower than it should be based on my age/weight/muscle weight, etc. My doctor advised that the medication is not likely to cause weight loss. My question is- does the influence of the medication on weight loss change when someone is dieting and exercising regularly? I count calories daily, eat nothing but whole foods & healthy fats, and exercise (cardio + weights) 5 days a week. I hit a plateau after 3 weeks and haven't lost anything in the last 4...so I'm wondering if this drug therapy will get my metabolism closer to where it should be and therefore help with healthy weight loss.
