I'm one of the 'lucky' many that get to deal with a thyroid disorder. Even though I went to a doc with 'text book' symptoms I was ignored and told to go home. Once my condition progressed to a life threatening stage I was finally diagnosed and given THE treatment that was to cure me and a medication that would make everything just like normal. That should have been the 'fix all', right? Well, turns out that it wasn't. I went for the next decade dealing with docs that cared little for my symptoms and failed to properly treat me.

Eventually I went out and started learning more about this myself, in the process I ended up becoming more and more involved in helping others to learn more about their conditions, available treatments and medications

I won't go into detail with this here, it's too involved, and I'm too passionate about it and end up getting wordy.... So I'd like to share the short list of signals that our bodies use to tell us that we need to take a closer look at how things are going and invite to you to read more and/or ask questions.

If you're one of the huge number of folks that are dealing with symptoms such as:

bullet

fatigue

bullet

cold hands or feet

bullet

sleeping too much or not being able to sleep enough

bullet

constipation or diarrhea

bullet

unexplained weight gain despite monitoring caloric intake and activity levels

bullet

unexplained weight loss with no change in activity level or eating habits

bullet

dry brittle hair or nails

bullet

depression

bullet

eating disorder

bullet

inability to conceive or unexplained miscarriage

bullet

loss of periods or prolonged periods not associated with menopause or pregnancy

bullet

lack of interest in sex

bullet

large tongue that prevents you from closing your mouth all the way that may or may not include scalloped edges to the tongue

Have you had your thyroid levels checked?

Or maybe you're already being treated for a thyroid disorder but are still dealing with numerous symptoms that are not going away, or maybe new ones being added?

It might not be a bad idea to look a little closer at your thyroid gland activity and increase your own knowledge base on the available thyroid medications and the tests which need to be run to be SURE that all is well.

Thyroid disorders are becoming more and more common due to environmental and dietary influences especially if you have hereditary issues involved.
