Re: why have i gained 60 pounds in 4 months and sweat so bad

Once my periods stopped I started gaining weight immediately. Lots of water retention. I have low thyroid and started taking a couple of kelp tablets daily... 1000 mg. also I have blood sugar issues and started taking chromium. GTF Really helped with the water retention. May be worth checking into if your doctor can't find out another reason. Also note my doctor said my thyroid was fine, but I know it is really hard to tell from a blood test and I feel so much better, energy levels changes when I take kelp. Check with your doctor for any other underlying issues and maybe give these a try. Hope it helps.

I would agree with Nidgy, maybe have your thyroid checked. It is a common problem during menopause, but beware, the Dr. may say it is fine when it really is low. Adding kelp is a good natural way to help the thyroid. I also added chromium for my blood sugar and it helps to regulate it, though I still can't seem to lose weight.
