 A reader says I want to inquire about my situation I am increasing in weight significantly with the feeling of fatigue and permanent exhaustion knowing that the amount of food I eat as it is and reduce it to reduce my weight but to no avail and I find it difficult to move (I weigh 74 kilos and i am 160 cm tall and i am 28 years old) and married and have a child. Is this feeling of being overweight from the gland or is there another reason?
