Losing and gaining weight Thyroid??


Senior Member
So when I stopped smoking a long while ago . 1 year and a half later I got a viral infection CMV and got sick. Oddly enough years later I stopped again. And a year later boom again a huge relapse. Still housebound because of it .
I don't remember where but read that stopping to smoke had an impact on your thyroid ??

Anyways like many of us I am gaining wait ......but in my recent relapse I suddenly lost 8 kilos . Made no sense to me . And felt like I was in a roller coaster while lying in bed.

My test for thyroid TSH and T4. Which are the only ones my GP did came back normal . But beside the fact that my symptoms fit with hypo the sudden weight loss would fit with hyper??

My cortisol is a little low in the morning though.

So now what should I do. I can't get to a better doc cause I'm housebound. But will talk about this stuff with my GP.

What supplements do you guys recommend??

Thanks for the help .
