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. 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. Epstein-Barr Virus a Cause of Hashimoto’s?
Reputable research published by medical groups including PubMed (National Institutes of Health), has associated the development of autoimmune diseases, including Hashimoto's thyroiditis, to the "Epstein-Barr Virus" (EBV). It is my belief that EBV is the cause of thyroid disease in my own case.
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. 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.
8. Fulvic and Humic Acids
Fulvic and humic are powerhouse substances that have exceptional nutritive, antioxidant and electrolyte qualities. They will benefit the health of anyone who takes them and can also be effective in establishing a healthy metabolism, repairing damaged cells and chelating heavy metals.
9. Adrenal Gland Function
The adrenal glands, like the thyroid gland, are members of the endocrine system and work in conjunction with each other. The adrenal glands help to regulate blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, metabolism, fatigue, libido, sleep patterns and the classic "fight or flight" stress response.
10. Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are symptoms associated with thyroid disorders. If you or someone you know is suffering with on-going anxiety and depression, it is important to test thyroid function. If thyroid disorders are the root cause, no amount of psychiatric drugs will correct the issues.
