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 Problems – Finding the Right Practitioner to Diagnose Thyroid Problems

Kristie wrote me:

Just crazy! After seeing an Endocrinologist (for years), the gyno (because of debilitating periods), a naturopath, a holistic MD, a GP, a DO who specializes in chronic infections, a Shaman, and a Chinese Doc, it was a dermatologist who tested for the Hashimotos (I went to her because my eye brows are falling out)…but she didn’t know what to do with the diagnosis….then I happened upon Dr. Kharrazian’s book and here I am trying to figure out what to do next.

So far the gluten-free diet has been much easier than I anticipated…my friends and family are really supportive because they see a huge difference already! And, now when I look at a cookie, or all my other holiday favorites…I just see poison. And, call on the memories of the enjoyment of those things from yesteryear.


Yes Kristie, getting 98% of the healthcare professionals out there to realize it’s our thyroid that’s the problem seems like a huge shell game! I’m so glad you found one, and a dermatologist!

Here is a list of trained practitioners  in thyroid health.

It sounds like you’re on the road back to health now, keep going!
