While I no longer have to worry about my bone strength, I’m once again battling weight gain. Over the past year or so, I have gained about 12 pounds, which has pushed me up a full dress size. I’m still on the alkaline diet, so the gain has really puzzled me.
I came across this title, Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat? by Dr. Sanford Siegal, and was intrigued. A few years ago when Dr. Rogers’ practice was still open, he had prescribed thyroid support for me, first in the form of Armour Thyroid, then later scaling down to the MedCaps T3 supplement from Xymogen. This year I have not been taking any thyroid supplements. Could an underactive thyroid be the culprit that is causing my weight to creep back up?
Dr. Siegal, the author of the book, specializes in helping patients lose weight. The book should be here in a couple of days. I’ll let you know what I find out.
