Yours : Yours is a very challenging situation. The fatigue and inability to lose weight that you are experiencing could have many causes. First, there is a hormonal imbalance involved - this is evidenced by the diagnoses of hypothyroidism and pcos. The interpretation of "normal" range for labs usually does not acknowledge "low in the reference range" as relevant, and may be the case with you. You also may not be getting all the labs that give useful information, such as a reverse T3 level and anti-thyroid antibody levels. Second, your body may be registering the exercise you are doing as too much, in which case your body will paradoxically hold on to your excess weight despite exercise. Your body may also be doing this regarding your lower calorie intake; the metabolism experiences lower calorie intake as starvation and adapts by going even lower and not allowing weight loss to happen. I think metformin is a good medication to include in your regimen, and others may be helpful. It helps with metabolic syndrome, even when there is no overt diabetes yet. Not commonly discussed in conventional medical circles, there may also be infectious causes of your fatigue and inability to lose weight, such as viral and bacterial (tick-borne) infections. Your situation is complex, and you need a specialist who will look at all these aspects of your case and offer you a wide array of treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
