In brief: If caught in time
Hypothyroidism only affects weight when it is poorly treated because of not complying with instructions or has been ongoing for a long time before diagnosis(inital symptoms are very vague).
Weight issues are over- attributed to thyroid dysfunction that it has become an urban legend.
