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.

    I am sure you have received many letters similar to this one. I am 30 years old and the first time I can remember having my thyroid tested was while I was still in elementary school. During early childhood I was always very underweight and sickly until having my tonsils removed at age 8 or so and I rapidly gained weight within 6 months I went from being underweight to being so overweight I developed stretch marks on my upper thighs. I continued to get strep throat which is the reason my tonsils were removed in the first place. I always wondered if that surgery may have had something to do with my thyroid issues.

    Several more times throughout my childhood my thyroid was tested again. The results always came back the same – everything looked normal. In my early teens I became very depressed and wanted to do nothing more than sleep so I was put on Prozac….and from there a downward spiral of prescription medications for anxiety and depression. Some helped for a little while, some made things worse.

    As an adult I suspected thyroid issues and had my thyroid tested many more times but always the same- everything was normal. I began seeing an herbalist when I was around 24. I did not agree with everything but I was confident that she may be a person who could help me. I had a different type of thyroid test done and it came back showing I needed to be on medication. I will never forget the first day I took an adrenal/thyroid supplement. I felt a way that is indescribable in the best of ways. I felt alive. The feeling I got from the supplements and eventually armour thyroid medication did not last long. I take two 30mg armour thyroid pills everyday and I have for several years.

    I do not have insurance and it is very difficult for me to get a blood panel done and when I am able to – it’s always the same – everything is normal. Nothing is normal about the way I feel. It is all I can do to hold it together during the day, when I come home I fall flat on my face in bed and stay there. I don’t have the energy to do the most mundane things like walk my dog.

    My husband and I have been married for 3 months and my libido is pretty much non-existant. Being in the heat of outdoors only for a half hour makes me physically ill. I am drained always. I experience anxiety and the feeling of not being able to breath, constant brain fog, irritability, which makes me dislike myself(that’s an understatement.)

    Along with these symptoms I feel I am experiencing some digestive issues so I do not think I am taking in nutrients from food appropriately. Recently I began gaining weight little by little and now I am 15 lbs heavier than I was at this time last year.

    When I read your “About” page I began to cry. I do understand all of those feelings. This is ruining my life – my very young life – I have so many things ahead of me but the thought of continuing to feel and live this way is a horrible feeling.

    I do not know where to start, who to go to, what questions to ask?

    I have no health insurance and not much money to throw out for doctors to tell me I am fine and there is nothing wrong and then give me samples of the newest greatest antidepressant that I couldn’t afford anyway. I do not know if there may be an alternative practitioner in my area or a reputable doctor that may be able to help me.

    Sometimes I have a sneaking suspicion that the armour thyroid may be doing more harm than good? I really feel helpless and I really need some guidance. I have been reading your information and it makes me feel as though there is some hope.

    Can you offer me any further advice? Thank you for taking the time to read this as I am sure you receive many of them. The information on your website helps me in knowing I am not the only person in the world who has ever felt this way.

    Thank you.

      Wow, Corrie, I hear you for sure and am so sorry that you are in the underworld throws of hypothyroidism and I’m sure, Hashimoto’s disease. It’s especially sad for me to hear this from young, married women who have their sexual energies dumbed down and vibrancy dashed.

      I don’t know where you live, but do go to my PRACTITIONERS page on this site and find one (trained in thyroid health) who will help you. http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/ Just taking thyroid medication is not enough.

      You can also order my manual with the thyroid health diet to help you immediately.
      http://thyroidu.com/bookstoreresources/my-thyroid-health-plan-manual/
      It will also give you the big picture about your thyroid and health condition, and help your husband understand as well (if necessary). There are checklist forms in it to take to any practitioner you see to help them understand your situation immediately and for you to keep weekly track of for yourself. I use them after 2 years of starting my treatment.

      Again, your practitioner must be “thyroid trained,” or they still will not have the necessary supplements and blood panels to offer you. The ones on my PRACTITIONERS TAB are trained and have the supplements and all you need.

      It doesn’t have to cost tons of extra money, even without health insurance, but you need the right treatment right away with the right practitioner.

      Thank you for your comments and I really am glad that my story could help you.

      Blessings, Kim

    There are three maladies involving the thyroid. Not everyone knows he or she has a thyroid issue even while exhibiting low energy or the inability to lose weight. One is an autoimmune disease and the other two are conditions.
