Default For those on thyroid meds: How has weight loss impacted your levels?

I've been on a low dose of Nature-Throid for a year plus now. I'm now nearing the 25 lbs lost mark since my doctor put me on this dose. I'm going to see the doctor and get my bloodwork checked/med levels evaluated next month.

For now, I'm curious if others on thyroid meds have any experience to share on how your levels (and medication needs) changed with your weight loss? I'm sure everyone's story is different, but I'd love to hear about your experience!

I've been on thyroid meds for almost 10 years and my level has never changed irregardless of weight loss or gain.

I've been on the meds for five or six years... weight loss/gain has also never affected my levels.
