Let's debunk this myth once and for all.
No doubt you've heard people claim that their weight gain is due to having thyroid problems.
The reply is always something along the lines:
"Blaming your thyroid is an excuse for not having self control or for being lazy".
But is this really true?
Not really, in fact the science supports the exact opposite.
This is a big deal for patients who are overweight or for those with thyroid problems because it validates what they are going through.
