About 3 years ago, I weighed 55 kilos. Starting about 2 1/2 years ago, I started putting on weight and FAST. I now weigh 90. I cannot shake the weight. In addition to this, my menstrual cycle used to be clockwork, now I'm lucky to get my period each 6 months.

I have been to doctors, naturopaths, etc. etc. etc. i've had testing, this medication, that medication and NOTHING. I do eat well and do exercise and NO change.

About 1 year ago, a friend thought it may be Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I've had the tests and the doctor won't give me a yes or no. This is when I really started to exercise and eat well. No change. I've even had my thyroid tested. Per the doctor I saw, he said the normal range is .5 - 5. My Thyroid test said my level was 1.0. The Doctor wouldn't do anything about it. I'm just SO SICK of not feeling confident with myself and frustrated that my situation seems to be completely uncurable. The rest of my family - tall and skinny. me - short and fat.

If there is ANY suggestion at all, that would be FANTASTIC. I'm sure you've been asked this same question 100000 times and so thank you for reading.

  • i presume when you mention your weight in kilos, you must not be american..so i dont know if this is WHY you're doctor wont treat you (since i'm not familiar with medicine as it's practiced outside the u.s.). i had a thyroid issue & was easily treated will thyroid pills for it. i also had a period that was messed up, & i was given birth control pills for that (which regulates the mentrual cycle back to normal). seems like you need a better doctor (who WANTS to treat you!).
