Treat it!: Hi. If you're hyperthyroid, I have to assume you've seen a doctor to get the diagnosis. If that doctor isn't comfortable treating you, get a referral to one who is. Once your hyperthyroidism is treated or controlled, it should be possible to gain back any weight you lost due to hyperthyroidism.
