1. Hyperparathyroidism and Hypothyroidism
Hyperparathyroid symptoms and Hypothyroid symtoms mimic each other. While some doctors do not believe in the relationship of the parathyroid and the thyroid glands other than their close proximity, other physicians draw a link to the calcium regulation function of both glands.
2. Epstein-Barr Virus and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
A common virus that is suspected of causing or contributing to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is called the "Epstein-Barr Virus". While it initially causes mononucleosis in some people, others never experience mono symptoms but they remain carriers of the virus for the rest of their lives.
3. 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.
4. Hypothyroidism and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Joint and muscle pain and stiffness are common hypothyroid symptoms that usually improve with thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Some patients may not see significant imrovement and may need to be tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis.
5. Adrenal Fatigue Gaining Recognition
The stress syndrome of Adrenal Fatigue, has lacked recognition as a real illness by the medical community in years past. More doctors are now realizing that adrenal dysfunction does not have to be full blown (Addison's disease - Adrenal Insufficiency), in order to cause significant symptoms.
6. Basics about Thyroid Cancer Treatment
If you read my article "Basics about Thyroid Cancer", you'll also want to read this one about treatments for diagnosed thyroid cancers. In this article, I look at surgeries and post-operative treatments for thyroid cancer.
7. Chronic Stress Related Illnesses
According to medical research, stress plays a major factor in the development or manifestation of some illnesses, including CFS, Fibromyalgia and autoimmune thyroid diseases. In this article I discuss stress related illnesses.
8. Basics about Thyroid Disease Symptoms
This article offers general lists of the main symptoms for both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Also discussed are tests that may be ordered by doctors, for patients who exhibit symptoms that may potentially indicate thyroid disease.
9. Antidepressants Combined with Thyroid Hormones
Antidepressant medications are helpful to many people, including people treated for hypothyroidism. Medical research studies have concluded that these drugs may affect thyroid hormone levels in the bodies of some patients -- a fact doctors and patients should be aware of.
10. 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.
