In brief: See P.C.P

Gaining weight wiyh other symptoms point to other underlying hormonal problems.
She needs to be evaluated by her p.C.P to find out underlying problem.

In brief: How's her diet

Weight gain is due to an imbalance in calorie intake versus calorie use.
If she is drinking sports drinks or protein supplements as part of her work out routine, or if she is otherwise eating high calorie foods, she may be taking in more calories than she is burning.
