I developed GD 2 years ago and have been on block and replace for 15 months.
On inially taking carbimazole, I gained around 25 pounds, mostly around my
waist and stomach area, which didn’t disappear after thyroxine was added.
I too have been asked many times when the baby is due! My consultant says that
I probably should be around this weight despite the fact that I did not lose
much weight (only a couple of pounds) when I got ill. It’s not poor muscle
tone as I do aerobics twice a week, work out at a gym once a week and also
go climbing weekly.
Glad to know it’s not just my problem, but I havn’t found an answer yet!
