Here are the top ten articles for the Thyroid Health Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. 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?
2. Adrenal Fatigue by Any Other Name
Many published medical studies are available, by the most reputable research groups, that clearly describe "Adrenal Fatigue" in patients with certain types of illnesses. While they do not use the same term, they clearly describe this common stress-related syndrome of fatigued adrenals.
3. Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose are particularly harmful to anyone with a thyroid disorder and may actually initiate and exacerbate thyroid disorders.
4. Recognizing Thyroid Patient Anxiety Disorders
The anxiety emotion is a natural thing but when it occurs at inappropriate times and more often than it normally should, it becomes Anxiety Disorder. Thyroid patients experienced disordered anxiety more often than do people within the general healthy public. How do we recognize it?
5. 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.
6. Hashimoto's Encephalopathy Rare but Serious
Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy is a serious neuro-endocrine disorder, that has a sudden onset (acute) and can be potentially life threatening. The condition is caused by "thyroid antibodies" and not by imbalanced thyroid hormone levels. It is also rare but very serious.
7. Thyroid Disease Antibodies
This articles gives descriptions and explanations for the thyroid antibodies that cause both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The two thyroid autoimmunity diseases are called Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' Disease
8. Tweaking Diabetic Prevention in Thyroid Patients
People with thyroid disease are at an increased risk for also developing diabetes. There are measures that can be taken to prevent becoming diabetic but some are neglected more than others. In this article I discuss the tweaking of diabetes prevention.
9. Hypothyroidism and Fatty Liver Disease
Thyroid patients and those with other metabolic related diseases, are at increased risk for developing other health disorders affecting the metabolism of the body. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is one of those disorders. Read about signs/symptoms, tests and treatment.
10. Book Review of - Hypothyroidism Type 2
This review is for Dr. Mark Starr´s "Hypothyroidism Type 2". I recommend this book to my readers who enjoy interesting thyroid subjects but also to the readers out there who suspect that they might have hypothyroidism that is elusive to detection by thyroid blood lab tests.
