First, I had a bug… a bacteria. See my past post on this.
Secondly, I had/have hypothyroidism. Yes, abdominal bloating is one of the myriad of symptoms we deal with.
FIX IT PLEASE!
Most bloating is caused by water weight, which can happen to anyone.
When you have a thyroid condition, it’s a good place to start to figure out the fix.
IT’S ALL CONNECTED
Your thyroid is an endocrine gland, its job is to release hormones to help regulate your metabolism.
When you have an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, in which your thyroid fails to release an adequate amount of hormones, your metabolism slows down. Water weight gain and abdominal bloating may be a result of this slow down.
WHAT TO DO?
If you have a thyroid condition and had not had your blood labs done and most likely prescribed a Thyroid hormone to make up for the decreased hormone production, you’ll want to go that route.
The mediation will help speed up your metabolism and help your abdomen shrink back to normal.
Don’t rely solely on your thyroid hormone pills to help you get your stomach “back down.” Eat a clean diet: no sugar, no gluten, no grains, no processed foods, etc. to help your body detox and rebuild itself.
You might try a detox regimen for a couple of weeks too to help detox your system and reset it.
