Estrogen and thyroid med
My doctor started me on Levothyroxine 25mg when a blood test revealed thryoid "on the low side". After a couple months on Levothyroxine I started retaining most of what I drank, my bowels (once healthy) stopped working and I gained 3 lbs almost overnight. Blew up like a balloon.
Is it possible the Levothyroxine caused more estrogen production? I'm post-menopausal, never had or will have HRT and until this incident have keep my weight steady with little effort. Will progesterone therapy help? Thanks for your assistance!
