RE: [IPk] Hypothyroidism

Hi Babs

Have you had your thyroxine levels checked to see if you are taking the
right dose for you.

Could this be the cause of the water retention or would it be something

Kind regards
Jackie J

Subject: [IPk] Hypothyroidism

 I have been on the low starting dose of thyroxine for a few months now and
suddenly become so bloated and have water retention in my hands and ankles.
started a strict healthy diet recently and increased my activity but things
happening the wrong way. I shouldn't be gaining weight and holding onto

 To top it all I have just read that for people with this condition it is
impossible to lose weight. Just made an appointment to see the doctor on
Wednesday and now feeling so down I might as well eat crap.
