From this study (6 months ago):
Weight loss 8 months 9 pounds
Blood tests are good
From this study (1 year ago):
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after having a full hysterectomy on 13th May 2007.
Prior to being diagnosed with under active thyroid I had for many years been receiving treatment for high blood pressure, very raised cholesterol just under 10 at one stage and therefore taking Ramipril and Atorvastatin to treat same.
symptoms have always been extreme tiredness, dry skin, loss & thinning of hair, heavy periods, constipation, depression, aching all over and a huge weight gain now of 3 stone or more. (much more since hysterectomy).
Since Hysterectomy I have been thrown in to menopause and was taking HRT patches of 50mcg which I ceased to use in Sept 2011.
I also ceased to use the Atorvastatin and blood pressure medication in Sept due to exasperation at feeling so ill as by this time I was having cortisone injections in my right knee which no longer worked for me and I was dragging my leg to walk. I was also experiencing swollen ankle joints and lots of aches and pains.
After stopping everything my leg gradually improved so much so that I no longer needed to attend hospital for the wash out of my knee which was scheduled for December 19th 2011. My right knee is now almost back to normal. I understand that this was down to my taking statins which I am no longer taking hence the raised cholesterol again. However my cholesterol has never been what you may call low.
My doctor told me to lose weight, cut down on my portion sizes and use the gym which would have been impossible when I could not bend my knee until January this year.
