Hubby is hypERthyroid. He had dropped from 140 to 110 pounds...5' 11''.
They put him on a double dose of the medicine, then down to a normal dose, and just last week...a half dose. He started taking the medicine in January 2003...yeah, it's been that long. But he no longer has problems with his carpal tunnel, and he hates the weight he's gained as he seems to have packed it all in the middle. But he's up to about 150 steady for the last year. So if the hyper medicine has such an effect on his weight and carpal tunnel, I'd imagine the hypo medicine would have a similar effect.
