A number of people find that, even though they are treated correctly with thyroxine for under active thyroid (hypothyroidism), continue to gain weight leading to obesity. I get a number of referrals from general practitioners to help patients who find that they are struggling to lose weight despite being on the correct dose of thyroxine. They also have a normal thyroid function test.

People with under active thyroid on thyroxine, who are told that their thyroid is fine, do not know what next to do. They join slimming clubs or go on a calorie restricted diet. They find that all these interventions do not help. Despite taking thyroxine regularly they have some symptoms of under active thyroid like tiredness, dry skin, constipation and intolerance to cold.
