: : I was told i had slightly low thyroid and wasnt given any medication from my doc. He said i didnt need any, cause it would make me worse....I am too thin, 102 lbs, and am 5'5....I need weight desperately and cant seem to gain no matter what i eat. I never was like this before, i always looked quite pleasant. Now i look like a toothpick. I THOUGHT HYPOTHYROID MADE YOU GAIN WEIGHT????? But with me, its so hard to gain. I would love any answers or solutions to this, because on top of feeling tired all the time, its depressing me that i have to look so malnourished....i know its how we feel not how we look, that we should go by, but i feel so much healthier with a couple of pounds. Those 20 lbs are the most difficult to put on....i stay at 102 all the time for the last year. I used to weigh 118 (my ideal weight) I have tried alot of carbs, but i get burping/nausea when i do that.....thanks for any info

Are you sure it was hyPO? Believe me, the common person w/hypothyroid gains weight & has an incredibly difficult time losing any, no matter how strict the program. While your doctor knows much better than I do, you should think about getting a second opinion to control your weight loss.
