It is important for people who are on thyroid medication, especially when they have hypothyroid, to look for alternative treatments because many times it is really an issue of thyroid hormone metabolism and not a primary hypothyroid situation.
In the United States, there is estimated to be 27 million people with hypothyroid conditions, and only half of those are diagnosed. Of those, half of the diagnosed are considered to have Hashimoto’s or autoimmune hypothyroid. Taking thyroid hormone in a majority of those situations when the hypothyroid or Hashimoto’s has not been diagnosed is just a bad patch. The autoimmunity continues on. The destruction and the damage continues.
It is really important to get a proper diagnosis and find out how to restore the thyroid hormone metabolism and manage that autoimmune and immune system.
