Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you have gained so much weight after your pregnancy. Did your dr also test for thyroid and insulin imbalances? If not, I would recommend that you consult an Endocrinologist (a medical specialist who works with hormone imbalances) so that he or she can do a thorough check of all the hormones that could be influencing your weight gain and which could have been affected by the pregnancy. One other factor that can cause pronounced weight gain is depression (this is also common after childbirth). So if you think that you may also be depressed in general, not just because of the weight gain (although this contributes), then please consult a clinical psychologist who will assess your depression. Ask your gp to refer you to a clinical psychologist.
