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. 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. 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. 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. 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?

5. 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?

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Hashimoto's Disease
Hashimoto's Disease is an autoimmune disorder. The body creates cells which attack the thyroid gland as in invader, causing damage to the thyroid and leading to symptoms of hypothyroidism. It is important to initiate a protocol for treating this disorder early to prevent on-going damage.

9. 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.

10. 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.
