Hashimoto - Hypothyroidism - Unusual reverse symptoms

From: Apple - 2 years 41 weeks ago

1. I'm on eltroxin 25 mcg. Age - 23 yrs old
2. I have hashimoto(Hypo), I weigh 56kg since the last 7 years
3. Have increased the quantity of food consumption, number of times, intervals also, but it doesn't seem to increase my weight even by 500 grams, since several years. My growth is stuck up.

Generally people put on weight in hypo and hashimoto, but it seems to be the reverse in my case. Could any one advice what can be wrong.

It's more that people have a hard time losing weight with Hashimotos hypothyroitis. Not everyone with Hashimotos has the symptoms. Some may only have a couple or none at all. If you're very worried talk to your endocrinologist.

Exactly, people have hard time loosing weight. But my weight is stuck up since 7 years, I haven't put on even by few gram even after drinking whey protein, feasting on eggs, milk etc. Have tried all, it is just stuck up. My doctor says that it is good I'm not putting weight, but this itself is a problem to me.

Hi Apple,

It definitely is concerning that you have not gained at all. People often forget about those who are underweight. It could be a toxin issue, a nutrient deficiency issue or something else. However, your body needs to find balance and right now it does not sound like it is feeling balanced. I use a specific vitamin to increase weight, with success beginning in just one week after taking it! I know your original post was from 2 years ago, so not sure if you will get this. If so, reach out to me at cicely@taoholistics.com or 302-307-2701 for help!

I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism eight years ago and Hashimoto's six years ago. I have stayed between 56-61kg this whole time with no attempt to gain or lose weight. Before being on levothyroxine or when I need my med level increased I tend to go up a few pounds and when my thyroid levels are normal I'm on the lower end. I have stayed on the lower end for the last few years since adjusting to a gluten free diet as that has helped with my energy.
All this to say, I have also wondered why Hashimoto's has never caused a weight issue for me when that is such a common symptom. However, I am grateful that I don't have to stress about gaining weight.
