Anyone with Hashimotos??

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone on here has Hashimoto's disease and how well the surgery worked for them. And how far out did you gain any weight, if any. And how much you gained back. Any regrets,  thoughts, things you would have done differently?? Thank you for any advice or input.

I have Hashimotos thyroid, diagnosed in 1998. I was lapbanded back in 2007 and then went to the sleeve in 2014. I don't see any big difference between the two procedures and having a thyroid issue, as long as you take your daily dose of Synthyroid or the generic version Levothyroxine.

One piece of advise,,,  stay on top of your TSH levels. I try to keep my TSH number between 1.0 to 2.0. But, everyone is different. A couple years back they came out with new "Normal" levels, that range is .3 to 3.3

I feel my best at 1.0 to1.5

I have Hashimoto's as well since 1997. Thanks for the advice on the TSH levels!

I am scheduled for VSG Nov21. Will keep an eye out for those levels post-op!

I have it too. I'm about to be 2 yrs post op. I met my goal at 180 and went below to 173. My 2 and yr has been a struggle. I have been exercising like crazy, eating the same, but I gained 10 lbs my 2nd yr. I just seen my PCP and I told her I stopped taking my synthroid 3 yrs ago. She checked my levels and I just started my synthroid therapy 2 weeks ago. If I lost my weight with out my synthroid, then why am I now struggling to lose the 10 I gained? Is the lack of thyroid medicine finally catching up and thus the lack of weight loss?
