How to lose weight with type ONE diabetes and hypothyroidism?

Ive been trying extremely hard to lose weight but the scale reads the same number. I have type ONE( not adult on set diabetes you get from poor lifestyle) and hypothyroidism which I think is the problem. I’m so tired of bring in twice the effort as a normal person and not seeing ANYTHING change(not a decimal number, nothing) so does anyone out there know of a diet and exercise plan or trick to help a person with my glitches lose weight? Thanks for the answers!

    Hey there! I am in the same boat as you. I also have hypothyroidism and type ONE. While weight loss has been excruciatingly hard, I can offer some tips that I have been doing that have helped me slowly but surely get on the fast track to losing some weight.

    1. Take a multivitamin: Our bodies are always fighting off so much. If you take a vitamin, you will ensure that your body will be getting the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight off infection and allow your body MORE energy to do other things, such as losing weight. Look for multivitamins that promote a health heart and strong bones, as well as a good immune system.

    2. Count your calories: This is hard, but when there is a will, there is a way. Ever look on the nutrition facts of food and note the servings? Follow that! Record your total calories, fat, sodium, etc. Keep a journal and do this. I started out by just recording what I ate in a normal day, evaluating it (weaknesses: eat too big portions, not enough meat, too much bread/sugar, etc) and then seeing what I can do to improve it. Try to keep your calories to about 2,300 per day, and then whittle it down. I’m currently at 2,245 at the most per day, and I’m noting a change in my energy.

    3. EXERCISE: Speaking of energy, hypothyroidism simply kills your metabolism with an AK-47. 🙁 RIght here, you just need a little more willpower. Think of living longer. At least that’s what I do. Don’t use elevators: instead, use the stairs. Walk a little more than you need to. Have Nintendo Wii? Do WiiFit. It works out muscles you never thought you could work out! Walk around your neighborhood every day. Go to a track at a school and walk the curves and jog the straights for thirty minutes to an hour. I totally understand taht your energy will deter you from doing this, but even a little effort should help.

    4. Stay happy! SOmething you love to do that doesn’t compromise your health or well being? Indulge in it! I like to draw and sew among other things. If you keep your feelings and personality up, then you can do all i have listed above and more.

    5. Go to sleep on time. Yes this is very important. Your sleep helps regulate SO much.

    While ALL are important, the integral plan is to choose a method and STICK WITH IT! Watch your portions, and work out every day for at least thirty minutes. Take that vitamin, get some sleep, and remember to do something you enjoy.

    From one hypobetes dealer to another, I HAVE FAITH IN YOU!

    And a last note: I’ve been doing this very method for the past week and a half, and I lost four pounds. Just keep going, and with a little patience you’ll get there!

    You need to work with your endocrinologist about this issue.
    You’ll need to lower your calories and increase your exercise, but because of your endocrine issues you may have to adjust your mediations too.

    I have hypothyroidism and my doctor said no amount of exercise can change my weight. You need the thyroid pills to return you to a normal metabolism, they are very cheap and cost less than penicillin. I think it was something around 5 dollars for a month of treatment. I have lost all of the weight I gained just by being on the medication without exercise.

    You can not RAISE your metabolism when you have hypothyroidism. Even if you do, it still won’t be normal. You need the pills.

    The pills are natural because they are the same hormone which your thyroid glands make. They are made from cows I think and are just the same hormone you would make naturally. It is not any harmful drug or anything like that.

    There are a lot of unethical creeps selling natural remedy’s to your thyroid, it is an endocrine gland which produces a hormone. You can not fix your glands with vitamins or ANYTHING except the hormones which they make. Drinking plenty of water thought keeps your endocrine system healthy.
