Hypothyroidism patients generally gain weight.. If she is loosing means there must be other cause...An unexplained drop in weight could be caused by various conditions — including overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), diabetes, depression, liver disease, cancer or disorders that interfere with how your body absorbs nutrients (malabsorption disorders)...Consult your physician they will help you further
