Our expert says:
I strongly suggest that you take this matter up with your doctor.
I do not condome the use of diuretics (water pill), as well as diabetic medication for the loss of weight. Make sure that your hypothyroisdism is well controlled, as this in turn will cause weight gain if not treated sufficiently.
The best way to loose weight and to keep weight down, is by regular strenuous exercise and a well balanced low kilojoule diet. You have to create a kilojoule deficit by burning more kilojoules than what you are consuming per day.
This will cause your body to use fat stores.
