I've been trying to find out exactly why Hypothyroidism causes weight gain but can't seem to find anything on it. Does anybody here know the reasons?
My Dr said that my body can't metabolise the energy from food, and I wonder:
1) If this is true?
2) If this is why I'm so hungry all the time - my body doesn't think it's getting enough food for energy so it makes me want to eat more?
3) If the body can't use metabolise the energy from food, does the body then store the energy from food as fat, if it can't use it?
Does anyone know the answers to any of these questions?
Thanks for reading
