Thank you for the input.

Weight gain can occur from a few causes. In low thyroid state there can be weight gain. The other causes of weight gain are alcohol, quitting smoking, medicines like tranquillizer,antidepressants, cushing's disease, overeating, polycystic ovary, anxiety , depression , retention of fluid from heart,lungs or other causes.I would advise to get an examination by doctor. Doctor can then ask for tests, if he thinks necessary.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
