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. 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. 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?
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
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. Fatigued Adrenals During Hypothyroid Treatment
Hypothyroid patients can also experience a condition called "Adrenal Fatigue". When hypothyroidism is being treated, having low levels of adrenal "cortisol" hormone, can make adjusting to the thyroid hormone therapy slightly more difficult. Blood testing can identify this potential problem.
9. Thyroid Medications
Finding the correct thyroid medication and dosage is crucial to eliminating troubling symptoms of hypothyroidism. Each patient must be treated as an individual - there is not a universal approach to treating thyroid disorders. What choices are available?
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.
