Just wondering if anyone here suffers from this and is on medication for it (synthroid) and if so how does / did it affect you, cycling and weight loss/gain.
I was just diagnosed with this disorder a couple of weeks ago and just started on synthroid a little over a week ago and already seem to notice a little difference in the way I feel, I already feel like I have more energy than I have had in years, I feel less fatigued during the course of the day at work. I haven't noticed any difference is my weight yet, but I figure it's too soon for that. I was told by my doctor that it affects more women than men and that it really affects the body's metabolism and that it may make it a little easier to lose some weight.
Thanks for any feedback.
Well it's been about three weeks on the drug now and I must say the difference is pretty incredible, I have more energy than I have had in years, I don't feel as tired throughout the work day and I have lost about 4 or 5 pounds so far, probably because my appetite seems to be lower. So I guess the proper diagnosis and the drug are a good thing for me.
