Does anyone here have Hashimotos Thyroid? I'm mostly Hypothyroid but i flucuate.
Is there a certain diet that works best for someone like me?
I'm in my mid-20's and I'm 5'4" 197lbs. I gained 30lbs in the last 2 years despite my failed attempts of weight loss. I'm developing high blood pressure and I want to do something now before it gets worse. my Endocrinologist is not helpful. I'm just told to eat more salads!

I am taking Levothyroxine. 150mcg once daily at the moment. My endo is constantly adjusting the dose based on TSH.
I'm female and I was told I have a slow metabolic rate. I'm extremely frustrated. In 2007 I got down to 150. To my knowledge I didn't have thyroid problems at that time. I was diagnosed in 2009 and maintained my weight under 165 until I had a baby in 2011. Every since then my body refuses to let go and actually gains weight when I cut carbs and exercise. I get fluid retention really bad too.
I'm just really discouraged. I had hoped there was a special thyroid diet I vould follow to condition it and speed up my metabolism.
