Menopausal Weight Gain and Hypo-thyroid problems
your site..it is just fantastic...I have forwarded it to my girlfriends and sisters as we are all in the midst of menopause and the chronic complaint about weight gain and middle age spread is becoming ridiculous.. seems like we are all talking about it without any solutions!! We all exercise and watch what we eat but to no avail. I think the weight gains between us runs from 3-15 lbs.. I am the one who gained 15 and was in a funk. I went for my annual physical and my doctor discovered I had an underactive thyroid due to something called Hashimotos disease.. I am now on a synthroid and in 2 months have lost 9 lbs. Apparently this is the most common cause of hypo-thyroid problems and usually kicks in mostly in women older than 50. I am thankful that my internist ran a complete thyroid panel during the course of my bloodwork. It is a good thing to have checked out.
