Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Thyroid Health Site! These are the top ten articles that your Thyroid Health Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Thyroid Medications
Finding the correct thyroid medication and dosage is crucial to eliminating troubling symptoms of hypothyroidism. Each patient must be treated as an individual - there is not a universal approach to treating thyroid disorders. What choices are available?
2. Beyond TSH, T4 and T3 Blood Tests
What do you do if your standard thyroid blood tests come back in the normal range, but you don't feel normal? What tests should you ask for? What if your doctor won't conduct the tests? What can you do to help yourself?
3. Breast Health and Iodine
Law makers and doctors are recognizing that mammography is not a reliable method for detecting cancer in patients with dense breast tissue. Thyroid patients often also have fibrocystic breasts. Iodine supplementation can cure fibrocystic breasts and decrease the potential for developing cancer.
4. Menstrual and Fertility Disorders
Thyroid function impacts fertility in both women and men. Thyroid disorders impact a women's menstrual cycle as does the excessive amounts of estrogen found in our environment. Bringing the body back to hormonal balance can eliminate menstrual problems and enhance fertility.
5. Thyroid Guards
Thyroid guards garnered notoriety in 2010 when Dr. Oz suggested using them during dental x-rays and mammograms. Dr. Oz cited the rise in thyroid cancer since 1980 as a reason for using the guards. What are the facts surrounding the use of thyroid guards?
6. Breast Disease
Fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer are common in women who suffer from thyroid disorders. Iodine deficiency has been found to be a cause of both thyroid disorders and breast disease. Iodine can be added to the diet through specific foods and supplements.
7. Autoimmune Disorders and Gluten Intolerance
Gluten Intolerance and/or Celiac Disease can cause several autoimmune disorders, including Hashimoto's and Grave's Disease. Avoiding gluten can lessen the symptoms associated with these disorders and can even cause an improvement in thyroid function. I share my personal experience with gluten.
8. Gluten Intolerance
Gluten intolerance and celiac disease is a common condition for people who have thyroid disorders. Learning how to eliminate gluten from the diet may be extremely helpful in minimizing the symptoms associated with autoimmune disorders.
9. Adrenal Gland Fatigue
Adrenal gland fatigue commonly accompanies hypothyroidism. The adrenal glands, like the thyroid gland, are integral members of the endocrine system and produce a wide range of essential hormones, including adrenaline which is responsible for the classic "fight or flight" response.
