I had a checkup today with my endo and got some confusing information and some changes in my supplements and meds. Seems I've lost more weight than she wants, so she told me to add more carbs for two weeks and see if I can regain 5 lbs. Also, my thyroid has not responded to treatment, so that's been upped and a change in type.
Can anyone tell me where to go to learn more about the connection between them?
My fasting was 101, but unknown to her is that when I had the blood draw it had been about 16 hrs since I'd anything but water because of events that caused me to have to wait to get to the hospital to have them done before I could eat. Won't that explain a higher number?
All in all, other than extreme fatigue which she says could well be from the thyroid connection I'm still puttering along.
Can anyone tell me if more fat will add more lbs? I really have no interest in raising my weight by raising my BG if there is any way.
She really has changed the supplements I take for a few months, to see if that will have an effect.
Anyway, any insight in to this or advice from any of you would be appreciated!
