thyroid inderactive
Hi. My doctor said I have a thyri\oid problem, not enough hormone is produced. He prescribed Eltroxin. The reason i went to him is because i was dieting and not losing weight. Will i lose weight on this medication? Should i diet while i am taking this medication?

Jen, you should lose weight once your hormone levels have normalised, but watching what you eat will do no harm. Good luck.
