Not weight loss : The xanthine derivatives are agents that resemble natural occurring xanthines such as caffeine, theobromine and methylxanthines. These are plant alkaloids and components of coffee, tea and chocolate. While they are mild stimulants they would not be considered a principal treatment for weight loss and may contribute to side effects associated with taking them.

No relationship : There's no direct relationship between gastroparesis and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Some patients with autoimmune thyroid disease have diabetes mellitus which can be a cause of gastroparesis. Synthroid should have no direct effect on causing symptoms of gastroparesis.
