... advised that I have a normal level of thyroid but my body does not use it. This also means that I need to take calcium and vitamin D supplements daily. I have tried to diet, exercise and various supplements such as green tea and raspberry ketones to no avail. I am unable to lose any weight. I do not eat large portions nor do I snack during the day. My BMI is over 25. My weight makes me unhappy and affects my confidence. I want to lose weight but nothing I try seems to work are you able to advise?
Your thyroid and parathyroid are two different things. The parathyroid hormone regulates the balance of calcium and phosphorus in your body.
Be careful when you change your diet because of this. Try to keep the same intake of both calcium and phosphorus. I think I'd see a dietician to plan a weight loss diet for you. And don't use any supplements without checking with the dr. They can have effects on the minerals in your body.
