Thank you so much for your
previous answer to me!
for a blood test to determine whether there could be a problem with
my thyroid, because of my sudden weight gain.
test results came back negative.
it be because the information in the test was misread or something?
I still consider going for another test for my thyroid?
fibromyalgia cause weight gain, because at this moment, the weight
is the biggest problem for me?
picked up 20kg within about 8 months!
haven't been doing anything different with my diet or anything else
and I am not usually an overweight person! Thanks!
be reasonable to see an Endocrinologist for this thyroid blood work
testing since this type of a doctor specializes in the thyroid and
often other types of doctor misread or misunderstand the findings
bacterial infections and antibiotics can cause a temporary mess up
to the endocrine system.
with viruses, bacterial infections and taking antibiotics should be
tested again (if they were already tested) with a complete thyroid
blood work up AFTER their system is completely free of any virus,
bacterial infections or antibiotics.
there is no lab test to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, your
doctor may want to rule out other conditions that may have similar
tests may include:
-Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
-Thyroid function tests
the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, there is no fibromyalgia cure.
can help reduce the pain of fibromyalgia and improve sleep. Common
leads to hormonal imbalances, affecting levels of cortisol, thyroid,
serotonin and insulin, as well as the production of growth hormones.
Because of this hormonal imbalance, metabolism slows down and weight
gain often follows.
is not a specific illness,what works for one person very frequently
does not work for another but eliminating at least some of these foods
is worth a try:

-Food additives including MSG (monosodium glutamine) and nitrates.
-Sugar, fructose, and simple carbohydrates.
-Caffeine - including coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate.
-Yeast and gluten.
