Unexplained weight gain could be an early sign of Hypothyroidism, in which the thyroid gland stops generating enough thyroid hormones.

Vanessa Huppenkothen is a renowned sports journalist and Mexican model, who recently shared in an interview that she suffers from health problems that can significantly affect her weight.

“I had not realized it until I went to the World Cup in Brazil, I was weighing 56 kilos and in two weeks I gained up to 68 kilos,” said the Sports Center.

Huppenkothen says she had no idea what was going on with her body.

“I said what’s happening? I’m covering an event, I gained more than 10 kilos in two weeks, stress and the lack of sleep and traveling from one city to another was affecting me and I had no idea what was happening to me,” recalled the host of the Sports Center, quoted by Milenio.

Upon returning to Mexico, after her coverage at the World Cup in Brazil, the journalist says that she felt very tired and had other symptoms that indicated that something was not right with her body. Huppenkothen tried dieting, but couldn’t lose weight, so she decided to seek medical help.

The journalist shared that specialists diagnosed her with a thyroid storm and, later, hypothyroidism.

The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that is responsible for regulating the body’s metabolism. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which this gland does not produce enough hormones that are crucial for the proper functioning of the body.

“It is in charge of regulating metabolism, sleep, hormones, in short … You start to investigate the subject, everything that regulates the thyroid is impressive, and everything it has to do with, even having children,” Huppenkothen argued.

Hypothyroidism is a disease that can be controlled. Treatments are often based on daily hormone replacement tablets that regulate metabolism as the gland should.
