Minimize the amount of carbohydrate (bread, soda, alcohol, pasta, potatoes, corn); maximize the amount of fiber (vegetables) and protein (lean meat, beans) in your diet. At the same time exercise (walk, run, bike, swim). ...Read more

I am unable to lose weight and the hot flashes are worse in the summer. I would like to go off tamoxen for the summer! What do you think?

Continue: I would continue the tamoxifen if your oncologists recommends this. I would not suggest stopping and restarting. Consider using something non-hormonal for the -bothersome hot flashes-gabapentin or Celexa (citalopram) would be reasonable. Increasing exercise will be helpful for both issues.

I'm starting back on the Atkins diet. I'm having hot flashes right now. If I take black cohosh, will it slow down my ability to lose weight?

Probably not: Many articles list weight gain as a possible side effect of black cohosh. I tried to find how common this is & found one study showing 12% of women taking it reported weight gain. However. Most women gain some weight during menopause so black cohosh may not have caused it & may even reduce likelihood of weight gain! - see http://www. Herbs-for-menopause.

See your doctor.: You might want to see your doctor for a more thorough evaluation. It can be a form of hypothyroid disease due to low TSH which might be from a pituitary disorder. You might need some tests to be sure you don't have a broader issue, at least a full thyroid panel. Your TSH is in the low normal, but you have symptoms of low thyroid hormone production.
