I'm taking levothyroxine sodium 125 mcg per day, what supplement can I take to lose weight? I eat healty & exer. I weight 194.Im 47yr. Old,

No easy answer: As long as your thyroid level is normal, this is not the reason for your weight problem. Although supplements are a multi-billion dollar industry, there are very few if any legitimate studies that show that they work. You should get a full examination to make sure there are no other reasons for your weight problem, after that it comes down to the basic reality of fewer calories in, more exercise. ...Read more

I'm taking 100mgs of levothyroxine per day. My levels are normal now but i still can't lose weight. My doc won't give me t3 (liothyronine). Can i take kelp also?

I'm taking 100mgs of levothyroxine per day. My levels are normal now but i still can't lose weight. My doc won't give me t3 (liothyronine). Can i take kelp also?

No kelp: The most common cause of hypothyroidism in developed countries is hashimotos thyroiditis. Taking iodine, as in kelp, makes this worse. There is a small percentage of people with hypothyroidism that feel better on T3 (liothyronine) (due to decreased T4 to T3 (liothyronine) conversion in the brain, not elsewhere). Taking T3 (liothyronine) will not help you lose weight any better. You need to eat less and exercise to lose weight. ...Read more

If : If your thyroid levels are well controlled on your current dosage, you are like a normal person. The only concern would be if the absorption of the thyroid were affected by the fiber; that's not an issue if you take your thyroid pill on an empty stomach. There are no easy answers to losing weight. I have not heard of shinny fiber. Lowering calories and increasing activity are the keys to weight loss. There are a few other guidelines.
