... Hi All! :)
This is my first ever post and I'm hoping to become better informed by participating in this forum. I'm overwhelmed at the moment and have resentful of my GP who couldn't be anymore dismissive in her responses to my results.
Basically, my partner and I have 4 children, 3 which are boys aged 10, 7, and 5 and a 3 year old daughter as well. I am currently 26... (0 replies)

I am 23. I was diagnosed as being hypo 2 years ago. I am 6 2 and currently weigh 225 pounds.
Out of that 40 pounds I have gained in the last two years. Which is partially because I stopped working out but I gain weight very easily now a days. Not like when I was in college in 3-4 years ago.
Last year I took T4 50 mg for around 2 months but stopped because I... (3 replies)
