Anon116759-Underactive thyroid problems are very frustrating, but if your children develop the condition there will probably so many medical advances at they might be able to treat the condition easily.
My sister has low thyroid problems and she was having a lot of difficulty trying to lose weight until she met with an endocrinologist.
She is now taking thyroid medication and has lost thirty pounds. The doctor also gives her vitamin B shots in order to boost her metabolism and energy level.
She also had to change the foods that she eats. She has to limit foods that have a high glycemic rating like pasta, white bread, and sugary foods. She exercises daily in the morning which helps keeps her metabolic level high and eventually loses weight.
It is a frustrating condition because without treatment you feel so tired all of the time.
