AlexaIn2006--I think that some people do use the thyroid as an excuse for permanent wait gain. Ususally a thyroid condition can make you lose weight or gain weight in a short period of time it fluctuates. Going from Hyper to Hypo symptoms, some people are either or. Having a thyroid problem can cause you to have to work harder than others, a slower metabolism, but it usually boils down to calories in excess being the cause of weight gain and lack of exercise.

You should ask for a CBC, Ferritin, B-12 and Folate. They may want to do and Iron Panel as well, depends on how your doctor approaches it. You need to be sure that you have your Ferritin tested, insist on it. This tells about the iron stores even if you are NOT anemic you can have lowered stores. Keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
