Seems likely: Many with hypothyroidism have "normal" thyroid tests- see http://tinyurl.com/cseyehk and http://tinyurl.com/nrww2qg and https://www.verywell.com/signs-of-a-thyroid-problem-3231530 Iodine deficiency is a common cause; if taking kelp corrects the problem that is better than taking thyroid hormone!

Possible : Possible but not likely. Besides low testosterone, infections such as intestinal worms/parasites, TB & hiv/aids, cancer, hyperthyroidism, and other chronic disease conditions can sometimes make it difficult to gain weight, although that isn't usually an issue in this country. Don't forget that nutrition plays a major role in weight gain/loss. We usually estimate that 3, 500 calories (kcal) equals one pound of weight. In other words, energy in has to exceed energy out by 3, 500 calories for their to be a one pound weight gain. Likewise, there also has to be a net 3, 500 calorie loss with energy out exceeding energy in for their to be one pound of weight lost. Finally, while we use body mass index (bmi) to diagnose normal vs overweight vs obese vs morbidly obesity, that calcuation doesn't take into account sex, bone structure, and fat vs muscle. In fact, it's better to be a lean 110# rather than a fat 110#. Regardless, go talk to your family physician about appropriate testing & diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I wouldn't worry about it. ...Read more

Ok im not gaining weight and if I do I lose it fast have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, also im loosing my hair fast too?
Thyroid and weight: Given your question i feel that you need to have a visit with your medical provider and have some more labs drawn. The inability to gain weight seems like too much thyroid....If that is the culprit. But, the other symptoms, the hair loss seems more likely a low thyroid. So, not much more to say here in this forum but please get some new blood tests. ...Read more
