In brief: Usually not

Glucophage, by reducing Insulin resistance often promotes weight loss, but first the hypothyroidism must be corrected with synthroid (thyroxine) treatment.

In brief: Not so much

Best to treat the hypothyroidism.
Glucophage (metformin) uncouples your mitochondria and is not always a good thing.
