Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. You mentioned that you are gaining weight although you have HYPERthyroidism? Are you sure you are not diagnosed with HYPOthyroidism? Hyper - means your thyroid works double time and you should lose weight while hypo - means your thyroid slows down.

Can you provide us clarification? If you have hyperthyroidism and gaining weight, we would have to provide you information from a specialist.

Thank you for any updates.
