Hi Riya! If your thyroid gland is not working properly it directly affects the metabolism. A slower metabolism makes you gain more fat from food, as all the excess calories are deposited in the body as fat. Belly is an area that's prone to store the excess fat, even except thyroid conditions. It's the most common for different body types even. A proper diet & regular exercise with essential lifestyle modifications can definitely help with overall fat reduction.
