Thanks for the query

The common causes for burping are excessive use of carbonated drinks, beers and soft drinks and ulcers, hiatus hernia, GERD, esophageal stricture and certain other conditions. For the control of burping, the cause should be controlled.
For your weight loss, as you already was thyroid patient, so it is recommended to have review of your thyroid function as it is at the top among the causes of weight loss.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask
