Hie I am 23 year female I have recently diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroiditis but no weight gain My question is does hypothyroiditis always cause weight gain?
Doctor Answers (1) on Hypothyroiditis
Not necessarily. It causes weight gain when it is severe due to fluid retention, which is not more than 5-10 percent of the total body weight. Anything beyond that is usually due to obesity.
