Podcast - Overcoming Unwanted Weight Gain in Hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s

EPISODE 38

Overcoming Unwanted Weight Gain in Hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s

In this episode Dr. Westin Childs discusses how people with hyperthyroidism (Graves’ disease, toxic multinodular goiter, etc.) and Hashimoto’s can lose unwanted weight.  Although a lot of people with hyperthyroidism lose weight including myself when I dealt with Graves’ disease), some people with hyperthyroidism gain weight.  And of course it’s very common for those with Hashimoto’s to struggle with weight gain.

During this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why some people with hyperthyroidism gain weight
  • The role of insulin resistance and leptin resistance in weight gain
  • How hyperthyroidism can cause insulin resistance
  • How leptin and thyroid hormone are connected to each other
  • Why focusing on the hormones is more important than focusing on the calories
  • Dr. Child’s diet recommendations
  • Whether people with hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s should practice intermittent
  • The impact of cortisol and sex hormone imbalances on weight gain
  • The “secret” therapy for treating autoimmune disease
  • The therapy that can support weight loss and immune function
  • What supplements you can take to assist with weight loss
