    Hello and welcome – hopefully, others will jump in here.

    We’re fellow patients here, not doctors, but it is more common for patients to need more replacement hormone as they *gain* weight.

    Sometimes, patients with gastrointestinal issues can end up needing high doses of replacement hormone, so that might be something to consider. The following link is to a study that was reviewed by the American Thyroid Association.
