THYROID DISEASE IS KILLING US

More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Thyroid Health and Hair Loss – Can Vitamin D Help?

A thyroid condition is like having a pinball machine in your body. That little ball of nastiness pings up into our bodies and brains and bounces off everything, including our hair health.

If you’ve experienced hair loss due to your thyroid health, join the club. Me too. Adjusting my thyroid hormone meds helped, but it’s still not as thick as it used to be. I’m taking Evening Primrose Oil capsules too, which has been suggested. I’m not sure if they’re helping, but will continue to take.  Of course, maybe like you, I WANT IT TO WORK NOWWWWWW! Unrealistic to say the least! 🙂

 

I just read an article in the Vitamin Councils newsletter that might be helpful to us regarding the place Vitamin D has in our hair loss and baldness. It’s short – you can read it here.

Make sure that you’re taking your D and D3 that is crucial in fending off worse thyroid symptoms and autoimmune diseases.

    I read the entire article that you posted re: hair growth and Vitamin D and while I take Vitamin D with my Calcium b/c I don’t get enough Vitamin D, I am not expecting it to help grow back my hair. Here is the most important part of this article (below). The last line is the most important.

    “Crucial to the hair-growth and balding process, scientists have found, are vitamin D and the microscopic receptors that bind to it in skin. These elements have become the focus for several research teams. (Supplements might offer health benefits for people lacking enough vitamin D, but they won’t bring back lost hair, researchers say.)”

      Hi Deb,

      Yes, and… if your body cannot “accept” Vitamin D – i.e. the “receptors” are actually collapsed and not accepting it or other nutrients – your hair/nails/skin are effected.

      If you have a thyroid condition and are not getting help from your doctor, you need to find a thyroid trained practitioner in your area. You can go to my PRACTITIONERS tab on this site http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/ and find one close to you on the lists.

      If you can’t find one close, contact #1 on the list, Dr. Jared Allomong, who is my practitioner. He can work w/ you by phone/email easily.
      He can start to work of your current lab tests to read them correctly for your condition and move directly into your thyroid health needs.

      And, if you have a thyroid condition, are you following a Thyroid Health Reset Diet? The diet is in my manual, see more here: http://thyroidu.com/bookstoreresources/my-thyroid-health-plan-manual/

      My good thoughts for your best health are with you,
