Thyroid Issues

Updated on April 19, 2013

It is estimated that more than 200 million people in the world have some form of thyroid disease. It is also believed that a large number of people have a thyroid condition that has never been diagnosed.

Did you know that cardiac disease, lupus, reproductive difficulties, diabetes, arthritis as well as many other health issues can be associated with a poor functioning thyroid gland. Research has shown that early thyroid assessment can, in many cases, reduce the incidence or severity of these high profile diseases.

Until the thyroid gland goes awry, very little attention is given to this small, butterfly shaped gland at the base of the neck.The hormones it secretes are essential to growth and metabolism.

The Hypothyroidism Solution

When you use natural therapies to treat any health problem, and in this case, the The Hypothyroidism Solution not only balances your thyroid it also balances your whole body.

We are innocently slowing down our thyroid and creating life changing hypothyroidism symptoms just by what we eat and drink and the environment we live in.

You can feel completely confident with your purchase of The Hypothyroidism Solution. It gives you the tools to identify the root cause of your underactive thyroid with a guaranteed four phase treatment plan to full recovery.

Laboratory testing used to diagnose hypothyroidism is completely inadequate, and current treatment for hypothyroidism is ineffective. Groundbreaking research shows how persistent environmental toxins prevent thyroid and other hormones from working properly. This book will lead you to understanding more about your health than anything you have ever read.

Hypothyroidism Type 2

An astonishing book revealing the cause and successful treatment for the plague of illnesses affecting western civilization; including obesity, heart attacks, depression, diabetes, strokes, headaches, chronic fatigue, and many more.

In Dr. Starr's description of Type 2 Hypothyroidism, he presents overwhelming evidence showing a majority of Americans suffer this illness, which is due to environmental and hereditary factors.

Test for Thyroid Function

There have been many studies as to why the thyroid might not work properly. Unfortunately most of the tests Doctors as to be performed don’t always give the whole picture and it can take months for the doctor and patient to figure what the right dosage is to get the thyroid work better. You may have to have your hormone levels check several times to figure out how to regulate the medication.

It is important to get the right number of thyroid tests which unfortunately are not often performed correctly. Here are some of the thyroid tests you might want to ask your doctor to order:
• T4
• T3
• Anti-thyroid Antibodies test
• TRH Testing
• 3rd-generation TSH test
• TSH test
• Free T3 test
• Free T4 test
• Highly-sensitive TSH test
• Sensitive TSH test

Thyroid and Weight

Your thyroid produces hormones that affect how well your cells will function in your body. If your body produces too much thyroid, you will have too much energy and possibly will lose weight. However, if your thyroid produces too little of this important hormone, your body’s metabolism will slow down and as a result you won’t burn enough energy and can become overweight.

If you are having trouble keeping your weight down due to hypothyroidism, then spread your food over five or six small meals a day. This will help keep your metabolism working well. Also, take time to exercise a couple of times a day. In the morning take a one hour walk outside or on the treadmill and later in the day do another ten or fifteen minute walk. One of the best things you can do is to drink plenty of water and eliminate caffeine all together. As well don’t take thermogenic supplements as this may interfere with proper thyroid function.
