I have already introduced myself on the hepatitis thread as I Have Autoimmune hepatitis But I also have hypothyroidism so thought I would introduce myself here too.
I have had Hypothyroidism for about 7 or 8 years now and have no problems with it. I take 150mcg of levothyroxine and do suffer with tiredness too and up until I contracted Hep A in January of 2009 I did suffer with weight problems but that seems to have got alot better since my hep problems. I lost a total of 56lbs in a year and a half due to the hep problems but as I was overweight I didnt really mind. I have a good healthy diet and now manage to maintain a good healthy weight.
The tiredness could also be attributed to the AIH and the drugs that I have to take so I just have to cope as best I can.
Its nice to know I am not alone with this as it is quite a silent illness and no one can see what you are going through. Especially with all the complications that having AIH can bring too.
