    Has anything changed for you in the past six months? Gained weight? Menopause, perimenopause or hormone replacement? Started new meds, like PPIs (Nexium, etc) for example? Anything that might affect your absorption of levothyroxine or your body’s requirements for it could make you trend hypo.


    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I’ve been maintaining my weight for several years but now I’ve gained about 10 lbs in 2 months, without changing my diet.

    Of course, I’m not getting any exercise, because I am totally exhausted all the time and can’t exercise.
    Nothing else has been changed (as far as meds).

    I really feel, deep inside, that there is something else wrong, but my doctor ignores this. Was hoping for someone to point me in the right direction. I can’t go on like this for much longer.
