I saw my endocrinologist today. The good news: My thyroid nodules have shrunk. The bad news: Looks like the right side of my thyroid has completely crapped out.
I asked if there was away to change up my meds because I am training hard, 8-10 hours per week, and still seeing no weight loss. My food isn't perfect but it isn't that bad. I should be seeing results. Instead my weight is slightly up from last year.
He was very nice, like a soft stone wall. There is nothing to consider other than my 175 mcg of Synthroid. No other options to treat my Hashimoto's could be discussed. But he would consider putting me on this diet drug:
I'm not feeling warm fuzzier about this doctor. I have been trying to ask around for a referral. There was a woman I knew from the gym who had great results with her thyroid doc, but my attempts to contact her have not succeeded.
The problem is there is so much hucksterism out there that it is hard to know who to trust. And since the authorities, the people we are supposed to trust, don't seem a lot better, I feel totally discouraged. But not suicidal, so I am going to pass on this drug.
