thyroid and weight gain

Had my thyroid nuked in 1998. I had hyperthyroid. All of my sisters had a thyroid problem, plus cousins and nephews. All of us overweight. I know now a lot of weight problem is heredity. Now my son has gained over 30 pounds in the last 6 years. I see what he eats and I know he is not over eating. He joined WW last year, lost about 21 pounds and then the weight loss just stopped. How frustrating! I have been telling him to see an endocrinologist as his regular doctor has tested his thyroid and says it is normal. This is a frustrating battle.
