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.

Gluten Intolerance and/or Celiac Disease can cause several autoimmune disorders, including Hashimoto's and Grave's Disease. Avoiding gluten can lessen the symptoms associated with these disorders and can even cause an improvement in thyroid function. I share my personal experience with gluten.

9. Breast Health and Iodine
Law makers and doctors are recognizing that mammography is not a reliable method for detecting cancer in patients with dense breast tissue. Thyroid patients often also have fibrocystic breasts. Iodine supplementation can cure fibrocystic breasts and decrease the potential for developing cancer.
