Carb sensitivity and slow matabolism?

My Doc says my thyroid is fine. He doesnt believe I have to eat less than 1500 calories a day or not gain weight. I can eat a LOT more if its not carbs. Very annoying as my wife and kids eat bowls of rice and pasta, bread-but little meat.
Has there been any studies on whether carb sensitivity is anyone else like me?

I'M a "study." I'm a girl who fainted many times in high school & was dubbed "epileptic." I was only a few years ago I was diagnosed hypoglycemic (reactive, which means it happens after too many carbs or sugar--not eating at all has little effect). And that diagnosis came with a 4 hour glucose tolerance--not 2, not 3. My father, who was diabetic, also was carb sensitive. He could never eat a high carb breakfast (like me) because he'd be ravenous all day. And as far as thyroid goes, TSH alone isn't a reliable test. A TPO blood test to detect thyroid-attacking antibodies might also help; if you have autoimmune thyroid disease, you may need to be at an "optimal" range to feel well & healthy. Also the range of "normal" has been modified upward in recent years. Best of luck!
