Hello,

Evaluating your situation that you are experiencing a rapid weight gain I suggest you do a thyroid hormone balance, T3, T4, and TSH. Hypothyroidism may be a cause. If the results show hypothyroidism than you should take levothyroxine.

A low-calorie diet and Dietologist consultation can help. Also, you can take Duromine and it will help you with weight loss.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Olgeta Xhufka,
