Living with Hypothyroidism
There are millions of people living Hypothyroid and suffering because they have been undiagnosed due to wrong lab results, misdiagnosed with another condition, or diagnosed but given the wrong medicine.
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
Undiagnosed Hypothyroidism Due to Wrong Lab Results
For many of us, we are Hypothyroid but undiagnosed due to incorrect lab results. Doctors tell us we are “normal” and “fine” based on these labs. Yet we know something isn’t right with our body, and we suffer with a myriad of thyroid symptoms. Being undiagnosed means we do not get life-changing treatment we could easily receive. It also means we feeling frustration, discouragement, anger, sadness, and unworthiness. Hypothyroid affects our entire life — work, our spouse, our children, our self-esteem, our physical body, our home — our ability to take part fully in this world.
Often we have believed those doctors who said we were fine. We lived in suffering. But we are so used to not feeling good, we don’t know what it’s like to feel good. I am here as proof to show that we can feel good. Traditional lab work can be wrong. Traditional medicine can be wrong.
Diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, But Given the Wrong Medicine
For many patients who do get a Hypothyroid diagnosis, traditional 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 give the wrong medicine?
Patients think they are getting good 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.
How Common are Thyroid Disorders?
According to the website RightDiagnosis, about 1 out of every 13 people have a thyroid disorder, including many who are unaware of their condition.That’s a lot of people! With the rise of Bromine, Fluoride and Chlorine in our environment, food and water, this number could be even higher. Could you be hypothyroidism?
