  • I have too much info & it won't fit here! I suggest you get the blood panel at an Endocrinologist or a D.O. I have found GP's don't really tweek on the "fine tuning", which is VERY IMPT! Also, ask about and/or check out Armour Thyroid which treats the T3 & T4. Most docs will only treat T3. Get the blood test asap so if you are hypo-thyroid, you will get back to "normal" as soon as possible - weight gain, etc. If you want to know more, please contact me. I've had hypo for 25+ yrs and have been thru the ringer! Take care! Deirdre

  • Ask your doctor for a thyroid panel, it's not a very expensive test. If your gaining weight due to a thyroid problem you are most likely hypo and hypo includes symptoms such as being cold all the time, not being hungry and sleeping alot and always being tired.

  • yes, I do. However my DR hasn't diagnosed me yet. My whole family has thyroid problems but my test keeps coming back negative. I also have gained weight.
