  • If you lose weight after having your thyroid issues resolved, it wont be from the medication. It will be from your thyroid finally being in balance.

  • I work for a company that has a wonderful product that might help. Take a look at it will list thyroid problem a result of toxic overload of heavy metals like lead, mercury etc.  which we all come in contact with by our food, water, environment.   also look at   I always try to fine a natural product that can help our family in lieu of medication because there is always side effects from prescribed drugs.  you might consider this for a couple of months to see if this helps.  i would get the thyroid testing done so you know what you are dealing with.  Let me know if you want more info and i will be glad to show you how to order and get at wholesale prices.   Mary
