Living with Hypothyroidism
There are millions of people living with hypothyroidism because they have been undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. For some patients, they have been diagnosed but given the wrong medicine which leaves them with hypothyroid symptoms but they think they are properly treated.
More than 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime. An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. 1 Many patients report being hypothyroid but have been undiagnosed due to incorrect lab results. These patients were told their lab work was “normal” and “fine,” yet continue to suffer from a myriad of thyroid symptoms.
Diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, But Given the Wrong Medicine
For many patients who do get a hypothyroid diagnosis, doctors might prescribe medication that only does part of the job. I don’t know what is worse, misdiagnosed and refused medicine, or diagnosed and given the wrong medicine?
Patients think they are getting Hypothyroid treatment, but still may experience many related conditions like weight gain, depression, hair loss, even balding in women, high cholesterol, low energy and more. They don’t know the medicine might be the issue!
There are choices like natural desiccated thyroid medicine or Lugol’s Solution, which can potentially treat all Hypothyroid symptoms. Learn more about how I solved my thyroid condition and brought myself to good health. Read my story.
