Cameron Barrett Finds Reason for His Weightloss Problems

Dave Aiello wrote, "I don't think I mentioned this on CTDATA.com earlier in August, but I have been following comments that Cameron Barrett has made on Camworld.com about his effort to lose weight by increasing his level of exercise and modify his diet. He asked for and received a lot of feedback, including a suggestion from me that he consider getting a heart rate monitor."

"Now, Cam reports that a doctor has determined that he has hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid. This has the effect of slowing one's metabolism down and counteracting the impact that exercise ought to have on one's weight. It's been interesting to follow this discovery process, if only because it indicates that sometimes exercise and diet isn't enough, and there are legitimate reasons to see a doctor if you are working hard and not seeing the fitness results that you can reasonably expect."
