Hashimoto's and getting the sleeve.

4 posts in this topic

I have Hashimoto's Disease and I am scheduled for Gastric Bypass sleeve in May.  I am at 214 lbs but have been gaining weight about 10 lbs every year.  I exercise and walk over 10,000 steps a day.  I  try to watch my calorie and carb count with every meal but with my thyroid issues it seems like a losing battle.  My question is has anyone that has had the sleeve with thryoid issues and lost weight?  Was it more difficult and slower because of thyroid issues?  I just hope that getting the sleeve will benefit me at all with the thyroid and will it be worth it or am I going to have this done and it won't really help me?  I am four weeks away from surgery and just nervous if this is really going to help me?

I have it and had the sleeve 12-29-14. Did very well, actually too well. Lost too much. It was definitely not slower and my thyroid meds have been drastically reduced this past year! You will do great!

I have it and had RNY in Aug 2014.  I lost 135 lbs and have held steady now for 8 months. My meds haven't had to be adjusted.

I have hashI, and I got sleeved Sept 1.  My highest weight was 213 (recorded).  I know the sleeve is slower but I am thrilled with my progress.  I am at 158 now.  You are going to do great!
