If i am hyperthyroid right now, and they correct the problem, am i going to gain weight? I am not too thin right now. I eat ALOT which is probably why. But i am just very curious. Bc the ONLY benefit to being hyperthyroid is being able to eat whatevr i want and i dont mind being thin at ALL. But i want to FEEL better so whatever it takes. But i was just wondering ... thanks

Hyperthyroidism meds should not be used as a means to weight loss. It can have very detrimental health consequences. I think you also said you take adderall. That also has a negative weight consequence. I think you should let your doctor know that staying slim and not gaining weight is also a factor in your medical picture.
