3. Menstrual and Fertility Disorders
Thyroid function impacts fertility in both women and men. Thyroid disorders impact a women's menstrual cycle as does the excessive amounts of estrogen found in our environment. Bringing the body back to hormonal balance can eliminate menstrual problems and enhance fertility.

9. Book Review of - Hypothyroidism Type 2
This review is for Dr. Mark Starr´s "Hypothyroidism Type 2". I recommend this book to my readers who enjoy interesting thyroid subjects but also to the readers out there who suspect that they might have hypothyroidism that is elusive to detection by thyroid blood lab tests.

10. Autoimmune Disorders and Gluten Intolerance
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.
