Resolving The Hypothyroid Weight Loss Struggle

By Dr. Kevin Dobrzynski

If your hypothyroid weight loss program is not working, it is time to try the recommendation made below and see tremendous results.

Most people with hypothyroidism report additional pounds as one of the symptoms. This is because you cannot shed any pounds if your thyroid is not operating maximally.

Well, aside from the obvious recommendations of diet and exercise, which will be covered in another article, you need to get the right treatment. This is not an easy task.

However, before you can get the right thyroid treatment you need the right physician. So, how do you find THE best doctor? By asking the right questions. Here are some good questions to start with.

How many tests will you carry out on me before recommending medication?

The tests are monthly before treatment.

In case I am diagnosed of hypothyroidism, what treatment options do I have?

There are multiple treatment options that are determined by drugs.

How many types of thyroid problems are there?

There are two types of hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's and primary hypothyroidism.

Will my thyroid require antibody testing?

Patients with Hashimoto's must be tested unlike primary variety.

It the immune system part of the tests carried out during diagnosis.

Patients with Hashimoto's require immune support.

Will eating a certain way make my condition better or worse?

Diet plays a very big part in hypothyroid weight loss.

The experiments will begin immediately after identifying the right doctor. The experimentation part is necessary because each patient has unique biochemistry. The reaction of each person to similar medical procedures and dosage is different.

Traditionally, the response of patients indicated whether treatment was effective. State-of-the-art technology has brought in testing kits. The evidence is however not conclusive and requires confirmation from patient reaction. One must therefore be fully aware of how the body is responding.

Hypothyroid weight loss happens in a concealed way alongside other indicators. This depends on the nature of treatment you are currently undergoing. It calls for close attention to your feeling on daily basis. The obsession should not be on the changes happening on the scale.

It is necessary to take note of any symptom that bothered you before seeking medical attention. Ensure that you record their severity. During the process of treatment, you will establish how the symptoms change. This will be a sign of things getting better or worse.

This won't happen overnight, but you should start to feel better within a couple of weeks. If you feel no improvement, let your doctor know and demand changes. If your doctor refuses to make changes, then you need to find another doctor that will LISTEN.

Your weight and hypothyroidism go hand in hand and if you focus on your weight, it will drive you nuts. You will only get more frustrated if dieting and exercise hasn't moved the number on the scale.

Proper treatment will offer a solution to hypothyroid weight loss struggle. Improvement will be felt on other symptoms first. This will be a determinant of effectiveness of current treatment.
