Our expert says:
I cannot assess if you are actually overweight or not at the moment, because you don't list your height in metres so that I can calculate your BMI. However, I doubt that you are overweight at the moment. I would recommend that you have the thyroid op you have decided on and then take thyroid hormone replacement therapy as prescribed by the dr. It can take up to 3 months for thyroid levels in the body to stabilise and it is often necessary to adjust your dose of the hormone, so please be patient until you have had the op and have stabilised. Your symptoms such as the insomnia, water retention and feeling sick will improve once the Grave's disease is addressed.
