Hidden reasons of obesity

Sometimes it happens that you eat healthy and exercise almost every day, but pounds do not “melt”. Even you may have gained weight and you don’t know why. In this case of obesity, you should see a doctor because there is a possibility that you have thyroid problems.


The thyroid gland is located at the front of neck and has a shape of a butterfly. The thyroid gland secretes two important hormones essential for normal functioning and development of the human organism. Often, thyroid dysfunction can cause weight gain. In fact, it happens that due to irregular thyroid slows down the metabolism and the body is not able to “melt” fat.

If you have any of these symptoms:

  • permanent fatigue
  • sleepiness
  • weight gain
  • accumulation of fluid in the body
  • digestive disorders (constipation)
  • flatulence

We highly recommend consulting with your doctor because there is a possibility that you have thyroid problem.
