Glad to hear the lack of energy is part of this as well as the inability to lose weight. I was getting really worried because my dr seems to think it is just diet and lack of exercise. My thyroid went hypo the same year so was not sure if that was it. Had my thyroid meds increased and that helped for a while but I noticed the tiredness is getting worse. Diets dont seem to help at all. Tried Weight Watchers but they really encourage fruits and vegetables and that causes its own problems. I was taking cholestyramine 2 times a day but am able to take it one time a day now. Found out for my it is better to take just before going to bed so it lasts through the night (used to wake up to the pain and would take a while for it to calm down).
Not sure if this helps anyone but good luck to us all.”
