Thanks for posting your query.

Hypothyroidism is known to result in weight gain. However, importantly the weight gain produced by the hypothyroidism contributes to < 25 % of the total weight gain.

The major contributor of the weight gain is still due to the excess intake of the calories and poor exercise regime. You can consult one of the nutritionists as per the link below. WWW.WWWW.WW

It also makes sense to see an endocrinologist to look for other causes of weight gain like cushing's syndrome (in which there's an excess production of steroid hormones in the body), kidney disease, drug induced weight gain etc. WWW.WWWW.WW

You'll need to reduce the calorie intake and do some regular exercise like cycling, brisk walking etc for the weight loss.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
