Does anyone fancy writing to the Reader's Digest and putting them straight?
I recently came across an old-ish article I had been given by a relative - who had been telling me for years that I was a bit on the pudgy side because I must eat too much. In this article a Dr David Ashton of Healthier Weight answered the question "Is my thyroid making me gain weight?"
He basically said that in very few cases was underactive thyroid a reason for weight-gain!!!!
Regrettably I do not have a date on the article but I know that I blew a fuse when I read it and kept it so that I could raise my blood pressure from time to time by reading it again.
Should anyone, who is more erudite than I, wish to send off a reply I am willing to type up the article for reference.
...hypothyroidism does not cause weight gain...I ask you....bah!
