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. 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.
2. Anxiety Attacks in Hashimotos Thyroiditis Patients
The relationship between hypothyroidism and anxiety symptoms is well established in medical research conclusions. Severe and chronic anxiety is not exclusive to hyperthyroid patients but also affects many that are hypothyroid.
3. The Thyroid Diet – Proper Dieting Plans
For thyroid patients who experiences problems with weight gain, this review of Mary Shomon´s book (Part IV and V of the book) is a must read! The book also helps thyroid patients benefit more from their treatments and live healthier lives! In this article we look at Proper Dieting Plans.
4. Adrenal Hormone Testing of Hypothyroid Patients
When a treated hypothyroid patient continues to suffer from severe fatigue, even with hormone replacement being adequate or optimal, this can be reason for concern. In these cases, it is possible that Adrenal Fatigue may also be present. How can low adrenal function be tested for accurately?
5. Epstein-Barr Virus and Chronic Disease
Vast amounts of research has been done in regard to the Epstein-Barr Virus and its connection to chronic and autoimmune diseases. These studies have concluded that EBV is associated with autoimmune thyroiditis and many other diseases. See the list of these in this article.
6. Nutritional Deficiencies and Hypothyroid Therapy
When a patient recieving thyroid hormone replacement therapy for hypothyroidism, doesn't experience the expected results, there are other hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies that could be the culprit. This article looks at some of those possible hindrances to successful treatment.
7. Adrenal Fatigue can Hinder Hypothyroid Treatment
Many hypothyroid patients have fatigued adrenals as a result of their body's struggle with thyroid disease and related inflammation. In some cases they see adrenal symptoms increase severely, once they begin thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Why does this happen and how can it be prevented?
8. Taking Thyroid Medication Before a Blood Draw
One question I have heard often from hypothyroid patients being treated with hormone therapy is: "Should I take my thyroid hormone dose the same morning before my blood draw?" Read my views on the subject in this article.
9. 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.
10. 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.
