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. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. Toxic Halogens and Iodine
Iodine is necessary to support healthy thyroid function. Iodine also protects the body from three toxic halogens that are plentiful in our food, water and environment. What are the toxic halogens and how can you best minimize your exposure to them? There's also a nod to George Clooney.
6. 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?
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. Fulvic & Humic - Tips on Using
This article includes tips on taking fulvic and humic acids, where to purchase them, how fulvic and humic increase body alkalinity and may hasten weight loss, and why you might be able to decrease supplement intake when you start using fulvic and humic acids.
9. Thyroid Disease and Diminished Libido
In this article I discuss the sometimes hard to address subject of "low libido" (decreased sex dive) that can affect a thyroid patient's life. Lack of libido can be concerning and depressing to a thyroid patient. Fortunately hormone replacement therapy and other treatments can greatly help!
10. Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid Simultaneously
Some patients with autoimmune hypothyroidism experience spells of hyperthyroidism (Hashitoxicosis). When this happens, their doctor should test them for "TSI antibodies", which occur with Grave's Disease. If the antibodies are present, they are experience this transient hyperthyroid condition.
