Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that you have been struggling with thyroid problems. Until your thyroid hormone levels have settled down with the thyroid hormone replacement therapy (this can take up to 3 months), you must please be patient and stick to your diet and exercise. The symptoms of hypothyroidism will improve as your thyroid hormone levels rise once again. So hang in there and once your thyroid hormone levels have stabilised you will feel much better and you should no longer be gaining weight.
I know it is hard to live through this transition period, but do give your body a chance to adapt.
Wishing you all the best and please be patient.
