Episode 31: Thyroid weight gain - is it real? Reasons for Thyroid Weight Gain & Sustainable weight loss techniques

Everyone's talking about Thyroid Weight Gain, but is it even a real phenomenon?

Thyroid weight gain is a common topic of discussion because it's a common symptom of hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland is underactive and not producing enough hormones. However, it's important to note that not all weight gain is due to thyroid dysfunction, and there can be many other factors that contribute to weight gain.

A lot of the weight gain is attributed to low metabolism as a result of the presence of low thyroid hormones. Why then don't we shed the excess weight, when synthetic thyroid hormones are introduced in the form of Levothyroxine?

What are some of the reasons for the weight gain? Is there a sustainable way to lose weight?

In this episode, Dr. Anshul Gupta does a deep dive into the phenomenon of gaining weight as a result of Hypothyroidism. He talks about the chain of events leading up to weight gain in the face of a dysfunctional thyroid gland and also delves into sustainable ways to address the root causes and in the process also lose weight.
