Hi , we do empathize with you completely. An under-functioning thyroid hormone could tamper with metabolism. Having said that, this is a hormonal issue which can be very well controlled by a healthier lifestyle which includes good nutrition and structured workout. Medications will help alleviate your symptoms, however, for long time benefits to get your own organs working for you, you will need a lifestyle modification.
