Hashimoto - Hypothyroidism - Unusual reverse symptoms

From: Apple - 1 year 49 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.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

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.

Is this good advice?

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.
