Hypothyroidism And Weight Loss

The thyroid is a disease that depends entirely on hormones. Our thyroid glands make hormones that are necessary to maintain our metabolism. Most women become careless about their health and ignore thyroid symptoms as minor fatigue, but it is not advisable to do so as it may cause many health problems in the future. One of the significant causes of hypothyroidism is excessive weight gain. Decreased concentration, irritability and sadness, sweating even in winter, unnecessary fatigue and insomnia, rapid weight gain, period irregularity, constipation, dry skin and hair fall, increased cholesterol are some of the significant symptoms that one should never ignore.


Doctors and scientists have not yet come to any specific conclusion about the exact cause of this problem because it is not an infectious disease and is related to food, pollution and lifestyle etc. In medical terminology, it is called an auto-immune disease due to imbalance of T3, T4 hormones and TSH hormones originating from the thyroid gland.

But who said those with a thyroid problem could not lose weight? Here are some simple exercises that can help a hypothyroidism patient lose weight:

One-leg deadlift


Stand on one leg while holding something for balance. Relax one arm in front of your thigh. Push your hips back as much as you can, until your hand touches the ground. Get back to starting position. The movement and burn should be felt in the glutes (butt muscles). Keep the back straight during this time. Do this about 10 to 20 minutes daily.


Stand upright and then bend at your hips and knees until you are in the position to sit. After that do an overhead press or similar pushup. Hold a pair of dumbbells to shoulder height. Squats are a great way to focus on the lower fat in the body.
