I've struggled with weight issues ever since I got low thyroid. Then I got other auto immune diseases that have zapped my energy and made my joints hurt. No help there.
The natural thyroids also made my heart skip beats. What I recently started was taking synthroid along with some cytomel T3 and no more heart skipping. Just don't take a heavy dose of T3, start out slow. I am hoping to see some weight loss..... I am older, in my 60's, so it's not easy.
