Can you be skinny with Hashimotos?
“Hashimotos can often be associated with some weight gain — its mostly salt and water weight, which is why you look puffy,” she says. “However, the weight gain seen with Hashimotos thyroiditis is usually less dramatic than the weight loss seen with autoimmune hyperthyroidism (Graves disease).”
