Underactive thyroid steroids

Hi Joe – I am to have radioactive iodine for a megamassive goitre, hopefully on 9 December. I weigh about 17 stones and want it off! Not too worried about the RAI but quite worried about putting more weight on. I hope to get the weight off and a volunteer from the British Thyroid foundation told me yesterday (she had exactly the same conditions as me) she had gone from a size 20 to a size 12 after having the RAI and eating to lose weight! She told me how I was feeling and was spot on. Said she had become ‘a new woman’ after the RAI so I am hopeful about feeling better as well. I read somewhere that 5 small well balanced meals a day would help and at the moment (pre RAI) am trying to do this. Any help you and anybody could give would be very gratefully received. Thanks.

If you are planning a pregnancy you should let your doctor know and ideally have a blood test before you conceive. As soon as you know you are pregnant, and if you are already taking levothyroxine, it is recommended that the dosage is increased immediately by 25-50mcg daily. You should then arrange to have a thyroid function test as soon as possible. Even if your thyroid function test is not ideal at the start of pregnancy, your risk of pregnancy complications is only slightly higher than normal and you will still have a good chance of a successful pregnancy outcome. However, your levothyroxine treatment should be adjusted to normalise your thyroid function as soon as possible. (See: Your Guide to Pregnancy and Fertility in Thyroid Disorders .)
