Insulin Resistance/Thyroid Hormones

So My story is that after quitting fin I swelled up and and gained a bunch of weight, about 20 lbs. that was two years ago. Now my weight is steadily creeping up and I feel like utter shit. I saw Jacobs and based on my symptoms he prescribed 30mg armour thyroid. So I took that for about two weeks and I felt awesome for the first 5 days or so until I slipped back into feeling shit and had awful headaches.

Some people tell me this is normal and that since the right dosage wasn’t given. The body will adjust your thyroid output and lower it if you’re given exogenous hormones…so I don’t know if it was just too low a dose or It just flat out wasn’t for me. But I can’t let go of how good I felt those first few days to think it was nothing.

I decided to not see Jacobs and try and find a local guy so I didn’t have to pay an arm and a leg. So I was able to find an endo who didn’t think I was crazy for talking about PFS. So he ordered a bunch of labs, and the only test that came back with a flag was my ALT (SGTP) , indicating maybe a fatty liver to match the weight gain. The only other thing he mentioned is that though my glucose is within normal limits it could be a bit high for me, so he mentioned insulin resistance is a possibility.

Anyone have advice on what to do about weight issues with PFS ?

Brother I went from 160 to 280lbs…feel close to death now…
