But the doctor said my thyroid was fine

You have seen these patients, they (usually a female) is rounded, tired and depressed. Her hair is brittle, the skin is dry, and they can not seem to lose weight, no matter what she does. They look into hypothyroidism in the medical dictionary and her picture is next to the two paragraph description of the state. She cries for no reason, a lot of catch colds, swollen ankles, and it is swollen under the eyes. You notice that the absence of the lateral third of eyebrows. You may or may not be underAntidepressants, or statins. They suggest that their thyroid is the source of their problems, and she says … well, you know what she says.

She had tested the TSH and thyroid was extremely healthy. The British Medical Journal [BMJ 2000; 320:1332-1334 (13 May)] published research examining the shortcomings in the diagnosis of hypothyroidism. The authors concluded that there is indeed flaws with the way that we diagnose with hypothyroidism. Above all, lack of research that shows us the relativeImportance of laboratory tests and symptoms in the diagnosis of thyroid gland. TSH production is affected by the level of thyroid hormones, but it is also influenced by other things. We do not quite understand how different diseases affect TSH and thyroid hormones. There is also a necessity, the possibility of false positive and false negative results when looking at laboratory investigations may result in the thyroid gland.

Many doctors of natural health care will rely on a basal body temperature test. Dr.Broda Barnes was working in the laboratory are to diagnose hypothyroidism is crucial. Dr. Barnes believes that should be the basal body temperature from 97.8 to 98.2 degrees. If a patient has a low basal body temperature and hypothyroidism symptoms, that justification is treated for the thyroid gland. The problem is that many things can cause a low temperature. With basal body temperature and symptoms, this diagnosis is also unsatisfactory.

It is important to understand how the diagnosisHypothyroidism so many health problems are associated with it. Many people on antidepressants should always support the thyroid gland. Research, in the American Journal of Psychiatry (March 1993; 150:3:508-510) suggests that the thyroid may be involved to some cases of depression. It was a small study in 16 patients with subclinical hypothyroidism and 15 looked normal thyroid function. The incidence of depression during his life was in the group withsubclinical hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism can cause high cholesterol and heart disease. Now, research shows that in the Annals of Internal Medicine (2000, 132 (4) :270-8) that can be subclinical hypothyroidism, thyroid and autoimmune diseases also increase the risk of heart disease. Could it be that your patient, who was on cholesterol lowering drugs actually always support the thyroid gland? Hypothyroidism may be responsible for miscarriages. When an expectant mother has hypothyroidism andnot fail, your child will have a lower IQ than normal when the thyroid gland [according to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine (1999 published, 341:549-555, 601-602),]. Problems to be able to lose weight, dry skin and immune system problems of the thyroid have at their root.

Fortunately, a number of doctors have been wrestling with this problem and there are possibilities, with laboratory information combining symptoms and come with a diagnosis and a safe and adequate treatment. If they are treatedare with the diet, use a therapy that has great potential to get good results without having received the same kind of risk to the patient, the medication does.
