im going through menopause and had ny thyroid levels checked after talking to GP about not being able to lose weight despite exercising every day and dieting. I was found to be borderline hypothyroid and started taking 25 mcg levothyroxine 4 weeks ago. Within days my mood lifted significantly, but my weight is exactly the same, even though Ive upped my exercise regime. Doc siad I could double the dose of levo if it wasnt working. As Im getting assaulted by menopause symptoms etc, I want to maintain some control of my body. Should I increase the dose? How soon should I feel better? What are the symptoms if Im taking too much? Will I lose weight? Im feeling really low about my weight.....12 stones for months now, I was normally 10 stones. Im doing high resistance on my crosstrainer and walking the dog every day. I could weep! Thanks for any advice.
