    Weight

    Is there anyone that is on Armour Thyroid and battling weight loss? I'm trying to figure out how to lose the weight and my doctor is not willing to help. Any suggestions?

      Thanks for all of the answers! Unfortunately I've tried all of these methods and none have worked. I was told as well that the low-iodine diet would help, but I don't eat a lot of iodine as is and I didn't lose much weight because my diet wasn't altered at all. I have PCOS as well as not having a thyroid so it's deffinitely a challenge. I am not looking into doTERRA oils, have any of you tried this?

      dani,

      Thank you for sharing your question. It reminded me of two articles we have on the site, both on how to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight after cancer treatment. Perhaps you will find them helpful.

      My concern is that my oncologists don't want me to lose weight---they say that I'm so small and 72 yrs, that losing weight would cause me to suffer physically, and I'd lose viability. Right now, I'm basically healthy and more physically active than the other patients. I just painted the dining room and my bedroom. I had to hire a friend for the TV room-it's a beast. I just hate the big belly. Then nurses make faces when they weigh me-sometimes make comments- I tell them my oncologists are happy with my weight.
