5 months and thyroid issies



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Had my RNY surgery March 9th and have lost 49 lbs but only lost two all last month. I was in hospital 3 days start of July with liver enzyme issues and my TSH (thyroid) numbers had went from hypo to hyperthyroid. Dr took me off synthroid for 3 days and then went back on 1/2 dose (50 mcg). Did that for a week and a half and the mental fog and sluggishness came back. Dr took me off synthroid completely. I go back Aug 20th to have TSH checked again. Could my going on and off and on and off synthroid be causing this drastic slow down in weight loss? I am still 30 lbs from my goal of 160 and was losing 2 lbs a week before this all happened. I have really enjoyed reading everyone's posts and getting some great advice on here!

with liver enzymes, it's actually really common for liver values to be way up until your weight stabilizes. Rapid weight loss is REALLY tough on livers. Mine finally were back down in the normal range once I was at or near goal. Although I don't know your situation - maybe there was something else going on with them.

It was actually ischemic hepatitis. Numbers went crazy high for 3 days and I was awfully sick. Then it resolved. It was either a bile stone stuck in liver that went through or a blood clot from the surgery hit the liver. Thankfully all had resolved now. Numbers are a bit elevated still so that's interesting about the weight loss causing numbers to be elevated.
