Just what those of us with thyroid issues don't want to hear when we're already having trouble losing weight! Hopefully you can get whatever is up sorted out Marlene.
Were you looking forward to an 800 kcal/day diet?? 1200-1400 may have different effects, and I found that a lot more feasible as a diet.
As it seems from this thread so far, "us with thyroid issues" seem to be a very diverse group with diverse physiological reactions to fasting and calorie restriction. Marlene has other issues with her meds and T3 and side effects than I have. So a different approach may be needed for her, and maybe others who do not respond well to only T4 substition. Many do, however, and may do fine on IF or moderate restrictions.
This would be a very interesting area for research, strange that it seems to have been forgotten by endocrinologists.
