Thanks for the additional details. Having gone through your descriptions, first we need to know the cause for the rapid weight gain, and I am sure that once you check in with your doctor, which you should, she/ he may like to check out your thyroid profile once again, rule out Cushing’s Syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, etc. Usually rapid weight gains are due to fluid build up within the body, like in heart, liver or kidney failure, or in depression/ bulimia, etc, and I am sure that your doctor would also be looking into these aspects as well. Maybe your stress and workload is a factor out here as well, and may have a role in aggravating the issues.

Diet and exercise, as also lifestyle changes are the usual modalities employed, besides the management of any underlying cause. Use of medicines and bariatric surgery is reserved for cases when diet and exercise alone have been a failure. That said, a rapid weight gain is a cause for concern and it definitely needs to be checked out. Please check in with your doctor and get yourself checked up thoroughly to know if there is any underlying cause for it, which then would guide appropriate management.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. Please feel free to inquire if you have any remaining concerns or doubts, and it would be a privilege and a pleasure to try and help out as much as I can. Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
