Use thyroid hormones to augment weight loss.
It can have serious complications like irregular heart rhythms. In reality, we use thyroid hormones like Liotrix to replacement someone's levels to normal. Hypothyroidism can lead to weight gain and restoring levels to normal(thyroid wise) can help some element of weight loss. in reality, it doesn't usually lead to significant weight loss.
