Hello. Thank you for posting.

Weight gain may signal low levels of thyroid hormones, a condition called hypothyroidism. In contrast, if the thyroid produces more hormones than the body needs, you may lose weight unexpectedly. This is known as hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is far more common. If you feel your weight gain is related to your thyroid, see your physician. Blood tests are needed to determine this. From there, your doctor will form a treatment plan.
