Weight gain after treatment for hyperthyroidism

From: Tanyellallen - 7 weeks 5 days ago

I guess my story is a lil different... I look sickly after losing so much weight over the years.. I knew it was my thyroid but couldn't prove it.. Because it can stay dormant in your system before it's detected.. Long story short .. I've lost sooo much weight till I look sickly.. I went from a 13-14 to a 7-8 ... My hope is that I do gain weight...tired of seeing my bones sticking out everywhere... Any advice.....

Add high protein snacks like dried fruits and nuts, peanut and whole grain crackers (or sandwich), cheese and crackers and/or apple/pear, may help you gain weight slowly and wisely. However, you might ask your doctor to refer you to a dietitian who can work more closely with you.
