Millions of people in the United States have thyroid disease, both autoimmune (in which the body’s own immune system attacks the thyroid) and non-autoimmune. Different iterations of thyroid disease include Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune hypothyroidism), Grave’s disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism), and non-autoimmune thyroid imbalances. In addition, pregnancy and menopause can affect thyroid function.
Following are common signs and conditions associated with thyroid disease
- Diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia
- Difficulty losing weight
- Hair loss
- Lack of concentration
- Sensitivity to cold
- Slow metabolism
- Weight gain
If you have any of these conditions, you may have a thyroid disorder, even if previous tests have had normal results.
Thyroid disease is often misunderstood, consequently many people diagnosed with thyroid disease gain no relief from common pharmaceutical treatments. Millions more are never diagnosed with thyroid-related illness because routine test results are “normal” with other doctors. Because of her unique approach to health and wellness, Dr. Sypien can treat thyroid disease with great success. She frequently uses nutritional supplementation of iodine, selenium as well as natural thyroid hormone replacement. Learn more about natural thyroid treatment here -> Nature-thyroid
