Our expert says:
Are you under the care of a physician or an Endocrinologist (medical dr who specialises in hormone imbalances)? If not, I would recommend that you consult one of these medical specialists because your thyroid function may well be abnormal despite the normal results obtained with standard blood tests. In the early stages of Grave's disease one would expect most, but not all, patients to suffer from an overproduction of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) which would lead to weightloss. However, patients can also develop hypothyroidism which would cause weight gain. More detailed tests which a specialist would perform could shed light on what stage you are in at the moment and how this affects your weight. Pregnancy would complicate your thyroid problem.
I do therefore think that your weight fluctuations are related to the Grave's disease and that seeing an Endocrinologist would be useful.
