Weight gain after taking carbimazole. Do you lose weight after carbimazole treatment is over?
Hello, I am 38 years old female. Will I be able to lose weight after I stop taking carbimazole? I've been on carbimazole for 7 months now, started at 20 mg, and now on 5 mg daily for one month. I have put on 12 kg despite watching my diet and exercising 4-5 days per week, every week. I also suffer from hair loss and acne. My t3 and t4 levels are already normal. Can anyone who has completed carbimazole treatment tell me about their experience. Do you lose weight after carbimazole treatment is over?
@barran Hello, I have gained around 2 to 3 kg halfway through the medication but gradually lost them. It's been around 1.5 years now for me. I think the effects of the medication and our thyroid condition may differ from person to person. I have also exercised regularly three to four times a week. Carbimazole puts weight on but you can lose weight by eating healthily and exercising daily.
