Hey I just heard about hypothyroidism and I think I might have it. I'm very sensitive emotionally, have HORRIBLE period symptoms and very heavy flow, and I've gained 15 lbs in the last year and I'm eating healthier than ever and workout too. My stomach will randomly get super upset (esp when I eat bread, pancakes or anything sugary) and I used to get migraines and I've always struggled with insomnia. I have also always weird nerve feelings in my right hand, struggled my whole life with depression, and don't feel like I can keep up mentally with focus or critical thinking in math/music theory/chemistry.

Many thanks, I have been researching "vasculature" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Yannabarn Vanish Thyroid - (search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my friend got excellent results with it.

Winner of a video, I have been researching "thyroid not working at all" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across - Yannabarn Vanish Thyroid - (just google it ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate got cool success with it.

I do- finally got it leveled out last month- after years and dieting after 3 babies it wouldn’t level out -until I changed to healthier food. I’m always looking for healthier opinions 💙 I’m gonna get your book - can’t wait 😊

Thyroid issues cannot always be diagnosed through blood test. My grandmother experienced hypothyroid symptoms for years, but her blood tests were always negative. She eventually developed a goiter and was finally diagnosed with the conditions. Even after developing a goiter her blood tests were still negative. Now I'm experiencing symptoms and I'm having the same issues she had with doctors solely relying on blood tests. An endocrinologist even told me my thyroid was slightly enlarged, but quickly wrote me off because of my blood test results. It's very frustrating. I just think it's important for people to know that their is more to it than just a blood test.

I’m so scared I’m going to gain a lot of weight.. i think I’ve already gained a couple pounds but I’ve been taking my leoxy- pills (however you call them..) for almost a week.. can anyone please tell me if my metabolism will be back to normal after consistently taking these pills for some time.. I’m a long distance runner and i want to be back to being more light and fast.. I’m so depressed😣

I got diagnosed with hypothyroidism 4-5 years ago and my doctor never talked about diet but ass I always do research before I go. I said I didn't want to take the medicine and I would try a diet for 3 months do new blood work and come back. And I did reduce it significantly just with a diet so now I'm just trying to maintaining because it's a little off and I need to do some blood work again this year to see if everything is still ok. It's hard work and my weight did increase because one of the things that altered my hormones were working out after dinner and not eating before going to bed. Nw I don't do that anymore but that also means that I don't exercise when I don't have the time to do it before dinner (still working that out). But my mood swings are nothing like before, I was a mad person and I don't know how my boyfriend would put up with it, even I couldn't put up with myself sometimes =D It's all about balance and I might need to take medication when I'm older but at the time eating eggs cod and a bunch of veggies. Cutting out green to black teas and soy stuff was what helped me. Hope this helps others and I will be doing some videos on my channel about that and about exercising because now is the time to lean out again =D Thanks for sharing <3
NickaPaulo (20 days ago)
I never related fategue with my hypothyroidism because I have ups and downs and now that I'm more balanced I related it to not working out consistently but looking back... I'm drinking my smoothies so I should feel more energised =D I also agree that working out makes me feel less tired and I can sleep less hours because I have more deep sleep =)

Love Sweat Fitness (22 days ago)
Hey girl! Definitely talk with your doctor about it :) My meal plan/sweat guides detail what helped ME, but at your age, things are totally different! Your doctor should be able to point you in the right direction, since he/she has all of your info, but you can start by just swapping out any junk foods for healthier options, and adding in some workouts throughout the week!

I currently have subacute thyroiditis. It’s a virus that attacks your thyroid and can be resolved. I have a high chance of not living with this. It goes from a moth of hyperthyroidism then hypothyroidism for 12-18 month. Small chance of it being permanent hypothyroidism but can happen. But I can tell you this HYPERTHYROIDISM is by far the WORST! Because I’ve experienced both and I’m currently hypo. Hyper was brutal my health had never been at its worst when I was in thy stage. I hope to not live with this but trying to prepare myself if this happens to be a forever thing as I have family history with hypo and hyper.

I am just discovering this, and discovering also that this is probably the issue I've been so obviously having. However I'm scared to get formally diagnosed, furthermore getting medication because I can't afford doing the special tests or doctor visits for something like this. But I'm not sure what else I can do...any tips?

I have congenital hypothyroidism so I've been drinking medication for all my life and it ain't ever going away. But I feel you, my medicine has been changed and altered so many times. I tend to feel tired, lethargic, weak, brain fog. It's really bad. Or sometimes my medication is too high and I feel shaky and anxious and it sucks too. I got my sports physical done because my endocrinologist said it's good to be active so I've joined cheer and I have PE class now. But sometimes I do tend to have my bad days. I've been told I weigh a great weight for my height and I'm 17 years old. I need to work on my diet. Any ideas or suggestions you can give me to help me so I don't feel so bad

I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism and it makes so much sense. For about 4 months, I was super committed to losing weight and by all of the calculations I did, I should have been losing 1.5-2lbs a week. I lost 6 pounds over the course of 4 months and that’s when I knew something wasn’t right. I was doing everything correctly and losing pretty much nothing. I’ve just started taking Levo, so hopefully taking that will make it a little bit easier to lose weight.

Thank you for this. When I was 24 I was diagnosed with graves which cause hyperthyroidism - horrible I was eating upwards of 5000 cals a day and lost 30 lbs in 2 months but I also lost my hair and never slept and it tears apart your muscles. After a year of meds- remission :) now 14 years later I just got diagnosed with hypo/ Hashimotos and just started Levo as I have become fluffy :) my endo said one good thing when he diagnosed me a few days ago- don’t allow the names of the diseases or anything to give it control over you which really helped me to start this new and fun journey :) this video was very helpful thank you!!!! 😊💞

It’s so amazing to have another woman with hypothyroidism doing health videos. I have had it since I was born and I am now 22. I struggle with the all of the effects it has. And I have taken medication for all of my life. I have hashimotos hypothyroidism and I’m hypoglycemic. It’s a struggle lol. It definitely helps having my medication. It’s gives me the energy I need to be healthy and exercise. When I’m off my meds I can feel the difference and it’s insane. Mine is genetic as well. Me, my mom, my sister, and my nana have it. Thank you for the videos!!

I'm a walker, I love walking and I think it was 2 summers ago, I had zero energy... Found out dose wasn't working I was in 50mcg and was put in 75mcg and felt amazing. Then went to 88mcg cause it was still off a little... Then after being on that dose for a few months I was put on 100mcg, but I think at that point I was spotting AFTER my period (which are crazy irregular) so I knew something was up, I asked if having my thyroid off a little can cause the spotting in the morning and my doc said it could. so I think I was moved back too 88mcg and have been on it since 😊 So glad I found you lol

I seriously need some advice from you guys. My grand-mother, my mother and my brother all suffers from hypothyroidism and have treament. I too began having the symptoms of hypothyroidism back in 2012, so I decided to go see my physicist back then for a blood checkup. Results? My TSH level was at 4,9 with high cholesterol. Even if I have pretty much every single symptoms described (chronic fatigue, irritability, depression, dry skin, memory loss, concentration problems) she still REFUSED to treat me saying my levels were'nt high enough. After my argument with my I gave up fighting getting treatment since then and have been living like a lethargic mess for the past 6 years. Now I just can't bear it anymore and I dont know what else I should do. I have fear going for a second opinion, see another physicist just to end up being refused treament again. I heard some experts says normal range for TSH levels should be narrowed to 0.3 to 3.0 instead of 0.5 to 4.5/5.0. I still cant fathom then why my physicist refused to give me treatment with a 4,9 TSH level result and consider every single member of my familly suffer from the condition. Should I give it another go and seek another practictioner to take care of the problem or will he turn his back on me as well ? I go to university, i can't get my energy back up at all, I might fail my last course this semester and I want good grades but I have absolutely no motivation or energy to do so, I just feel like going to bed and sleep my whole life. It's like this every single day and I just can't bear it anymore. Any advice ? (sorry for bad english)

Oh my gosh. I am in the middle of trying to figure out what's going on with me and my thyroid. I hit all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism and/or hashimoto's BUT my thyroid levels keep coming back in "normal range" despite my thyroid being enlarged. I was just watching your video about what to eat with hypothyroidism and HOLY MOLY I literally eat brussel sprouts and broccoli DAILY. So I'm trying to get educated and start doing what I can to help heal my body despite my blood results.

i got diagnosed a few weeks after i was born, but my current endocrinologist doesn't know if i was born without a thyroid or with a dysfunctional one. it's a huge struggle to lose weight, basically i have to restrict like crazy just to shed a few pounds. it's very annoying, just like taking the thyroid med on a daily basis for the rest of my life

I get very bad mermory loss and it suck when your at school and literally can remember what they said like 10 minuets ago.

Hello my name is Richard and I have dealt with the same condition since 4th grade. Since then it was up and down on different mcg of Synthroid to give me during my jr and high school times including dealing with ADHD. After going trying to get around college life I tried to join the Navy to be a Sea Bees (Construction Battalion), but I had to have a stable report on my t3 and t4 which I did not have. After trying to join things have settled down with my prescription at 200 mcg of levothyroxine and I'm enjoying my life. I'm happy to see that someone that has the same condition (varying prescription strength) can be so successful.

I was diagnosed today with hypothyroidism at 17. I've had the same life story as you as a child. Started period at 10, had headaches, fatigue, weakness, dry skin,, etc. also had intoleration to cold, had anxiety, but never had a weight problem luckily. Recently my hair loss, that I believed was caused by me dyeing my hair, got worse and I had a lumpy feeling in my throat. Went to the doctor and was finally diagnosed. Not excited for my future atm haha
i was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism (yes, the total opposite of hypothyroidism) back in august 2016 and thought that meds can help me manage it but for the past few months my thyroid is not doing well and has been too active (again). so the doctor provided me two options, to either take the radioactive iodine therapy or just continue the meds but with a higher dosage. and once i will choose the first option which is the RAI, i will be diagnosed with hypothyroid. i am actually very very worried and anxious but watching your video and hearing your story inspired me and somehow made me feel better.

I had hyperthyroidism at age 11 and after RAIU it became hypothyroidism at age 18 and we are still here!! It's been a lot of struggles and feeling out of space tbh esp with gaining weight, loosing weight and gaining all over again.... I've gained so much weight since 2016 and it felt like no matter what I did it wasn't working but I'm taking it one step at a time now with my diet and exercise (I had to realise loosing weight won't be magical)... I'm a new sub and I will be trying out loads of your work out routine especially. Lots of love from this side❤❤🇬🇧🇬🇧

Hi! I hope u are doing well... I had a hypothyroidism and then a hyperthyroidism and believe it or not the second one was totally worst because it changed my whole life and made me more anxious and depressed. However, now I'm diagnosed with a hypotherdism which is not the hyper one👧 sometimes my heart beats fast before sleeping or while I'm sitting or after eating, even though I'm taking my medication. Did that happen to you?

Your doctor will help you find the right medication to hopefully help you get back to normal! The meds will help but I had to go the diet/exercise route too. Trust me, it will make you feel sooo much better.

I too have hypothyroidism. I been struggling with this since I started puberty. I was officially diagnose with it when I was 26 years old and started levothyroxine sodium at 75 mcgs. When I started it, my weight was 250 lbs. I have lost about 30 of that so far, and I do feel a lot better then I use too. I have struggled with my weight since I was about 7 or 8 years old, even when I was in high school when I would work out everyday. I do feel better then I use to. I am so glad that there are people like you who help bring to light hypothyroidism. Thank you.

Don't give up. I would highly recommend going to a doctor for medication and help with your discouragement. Life is about SO much more than what you weigh, and I promise you that losing weight will not fix everything <3 Sending love

I've been living with thyroid problems now for around 4 years it's not fun at all.getting the correct balance is a fine line the tablets I'm on now are almost at the right levels. I've found eating at the right times and sleeping well can help but just when you are going great things start to slide I would not wish this on eny body

Oh I totally know how that is. Enjoy those good days! xo

Sometimes it isnt as easy to diagnose . I was mis-diagnosed for almost 10 years and I actually crashed, I almost died. All my organs were shutting down including my skin sells were dying . They only caught it on one specific testing out of many thru out days and it was off the charts. Our Thyroid levels change many times through out the day.(i never knew that) But now, about 3 and a half yrs later , Im managing. I was so far gone that I had to learn to walk again, had no muscles at all could talk but couldnt speak very loud . It had done a lot of damage to my Kidneys and Liver cause it had gone on so long with out being diagnosed correctly. I encourage anyone with even one of the symptoms to talk to your doctor. They dont typically check your thyroid in regular blood tests. I found that out the hard way. I too have had to make life style changes due to this crazy condition. It has more power in the functions of your body than any one can imagine.

I have hypothyroidism and i dont know why it is difficult for me to gain weight. I mean, if i have hypothyroidism, i should have gained some weight , right? I have all the symptoms except for weight gain. I dont know what to do.. I’m too skinny. And also, i have eyebags that cannot be treated by any treatment 😪

I have hypo and lost a lot of weight the first 6 months or so when my symptoms were pretty bad and eating wasn’t fun. But now, about a year after my diagnosis I’m having to work hard to keep the weight OFF. Honestly I’ve found that if I eat healthy and work out my body remains healthy but if I get lazy I gain weight. I haven’t been working out regularly for that long but it has already made a difference in just a few weeks. Working out gives me the energy I’m usually lacking. It’s just so hard to get out of bed and get going. But once I do, I never regret it.

Typically yes - hypothyroidism tends to mean weight gain and difficulty losing weight while Hyper-thyroidism is the opposite. That said everyone has different symptoms. Hopefully you can find a Dr. to help you figure it out girl.

Ur lucky you can eat good tho, I grew up with hypothyroidism and I always got the symptom trouble swallowing and I always choked when I eat. Now that I’m 18, I stopped eating for 3 months now because I’m scared I might choke again now I’ve been drinking meal replacements and ensure for 3 months.. (I had hypothyroidism since I was 8, blood work 3 times a week, I had to stay in the hospital, fear of throwing up now.)
Love Sweat Fitness (4 months ago)
I'm so sorry to hear that. That's got to be hard, but I'm glad you're working with a Dr. to figure it out.

I wish thyroid problems never existed or disabilities. Did you ever suffer from irregular periods? And did you have to get a meal serpressuer medication? And did you get overian cyst or kidney stones
