    Hi my doc tests me every now and again for an interactive thyroid bug the results always come back negative but he's not convinced . Anyway he says that losing weight with an underactive thyroid is like climbing a mountain through wet mud after it's been raining! :)
    Does that give you the answer ??? Lol good luck . It can be done bug probably slowly so don't lose heart and dont give up :)

    You should probably google that, to get a whole heap of information. There are a few people who have that and pcos, but I think they're on other sections...
