Our expert says:
I think you are a ***star*** for losing those 13.5 kg. Hypothyroidism does make losing weight more difficult and you have done extremely well so far. I would rather not take any diet supplements or pills because some of the ingredients of over-the-counter slimming products can actually suppress thyroid function even further. One of the most useful aids to losing weight when your metabolism is a bit sluggish (as is the case in hypothyroidism), is to do as much exercise as possible, concentrating on cardio workouts (skipping, jogging, cycling, swimming, rowing, brisk walking, etc). I would, thus recommend that you use your Eltroxin and your diet and increase your exercise sessions to 5 a week, rather than to take diet pills or products. Persevere and you will start losing again.
