Hi Thanks for using HCM.
Your rapid increase in weight may be mainly due to hypothyroid state. Get check your TSH
, T3 and T4 once. TSH is important to monitor your thyroid status. If it is more than normal then you need to increase your dose. At 48 some pre menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, mood swings, facial vasodilation
leading to redness
do occur. But weight gain due to menopause
may not be the reason. So discuss with your doctor for dose adjustment. No need to take 2 thyroid drugs. One with proper dose can be good. Hope you got your answer. Take care.
