Weight gain


Re: Weight gain

Hi Cleopatra66 

Tamoxifen could be interfering with your metabolism, which can influence weight gain. 

Have you checked your thyroid levels recently? 

If not I probably would, poor thyroid function can contribute to weight gain. 

Before you change your diet, I suggest getting your thyroid checked. 

I am a registered therapist, with congenital hypothyroidism, born with out a thyroid gland. 

I had BC last year, all clear now. 

There is no evidence to suggest the Keto diet is sustainable. 

Look at  plant based foods, you need complex carbohydrates for Fibre. Keto can be extreme and not recommended in certain cases. 

Hope that makes sense. 

Im here if you need any guidance re anything Nutritional. 



Re: Weight gain

Hi Cleopatra66,


That sounds really difficult, if you would like to chat to one of our nurses about tamoxifen alternatives, you can reach them on 0808 800 6000. 


You can also email them if you would prefer, here are the details: https://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/information-support/support-you/email-our-nurses 


Take care,
