How to Lose Weight with Hypothyroidism

Having hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can make it hard to lose weight - but not impossible!

These science-backed tips will help you finally lose weight, and improve your thyroid health!

Check Your TSH Levels


If you're being treated for hypothyroidism, and still not losing weight, ask your doctor to check your exact TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) levels.

You may need your doctor's help to lower them further to see results.

Add in T3


Normal hypothyroidism treatment uses synthetic T4 hormone, but some studies have shown that treatment with both T3 and T4 hormone produces better weight loss results.

Boost Your Metabolism


Hypothyroidism can cause your metabolism to slow.

Adding in daily exercise is a great way to rev up your body's ability to burn calories.

Eat for Health


Eating healthy, high-fiber, low-sugar foods in small, frequent meals throughout the day can help regulate your hormone levels naturally. 

Be Your Own Advocate


If you’re working with your doctor but not seeing the results that you expect from your treatment, speak up and change things up!
