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. 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.

2. 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.

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. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Hypothyroidism and Fatty Liver Disease
Thyroid patients and those with other metabolic related diseases, are at increased risk for developing other health disorders affecting the metabolism of the body. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is one of those disorders. Read about signs/symptoms, tests and treatment.

9. 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?

10. Thyroid Disease and Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) is a condition of pain and other unpleasant sensations (e.g. burning and tingling), usually affecting small fiber sensory nerves in the body. The cause of PN can include diabetes and thyroid disease but it can also originate from neurological disorders in the brain.
