The dose of thyroxine depends on the body weight. You might require a higher dose than 75 mcg. Also, ensure that you are regular with the tablets and the timing of the tablets. A healthy balanced diet and exercise programme would gradually bring down your weight and the other problems you have mentioned. Visit a diabetologist for proper guidance.
