More than 25 million people have thyroid problems, and half of them don’t know what to do. Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland) is responsible for 90% of thyroid diseases. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the front of the neck that is very important to our health. It releases certain hormones that regulate body temperature and libido, so disrupting their production can be very harmful to our health.
Here are the top ten symptoms of hypothyroidism.
mental fog, memory loss, fainting;
Muscle and joint pain, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome.
tiredness even after a good night’s sleep;
cold hands and toes, feeling hot but no blood;
Swelling of the neck, hoarseness, loud breathing at night.
Depression, stress, despair.
Dry, chapped skin, brittle nails, baldness.
How does the thyroid gland work?
The thyroid gland produces two types of hormones: thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and pituitary thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TSH). TSH stimulates the production of T3 and T4 hormones in the gland, and when there is enough T4 in the range, it sends a signal to the gland to stop the production of hormones. The thyroid gland produces approximately 85% of T4, a type of hormone that is more dynamic than T3.
T3 is considered one of the most important thyroid hormones because of its ability to regulate digestion, body temperature, personality, and many other characteristics.
The most common form of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune disorder.
Why is it difficult to diagnose hypothyroidism?
Diagnosing thyroid imbalances is so difficult that many doctors fail to make the correct diagnosis. Thyroid disorders cannot be detected by a glance or two – this disorder requires extensive research and testing to detect the problem. Usually, most doctors just use the normal laboratory reference range and take advantage of the ideal laboratory characteristics and temperature. But to properly diagnose the problem, you should ask your doctor to test for TSH, free T3, unstable T4, anti-T3, TPOAb, and TgAb.
Here are the most expensive thyroid scans.
TSH 1-2 UIU/ML or less (Shield or compound T3 can artificially suppress TSH)
FT4 > 1.1 NG / DL
FT3 > 3.2 PG / ML
RT3 is much lower compared to the 10:1 RT3:FT3 ratio
TgAb – <four IU/ML or negative
Here are 10 ways to improve thyroid function.
Include high-quality vitamin supplements in your diets, such as iron, zinc, selenium, iron, B, and D nutrients;
Try gluten-free tablets, especially if you have Hashimoto’s.
daily intake of iodine and tyrosine to help convert T4 to T3;
Drink clear water to remove fluoride, bromide, and chlorine from your system;
replace enamel amalgam fillings (if you have them);
Relieve stress and tension with meditation or yoga.
Find a good doctor who can perform the above tests;
8-10 hours of sleep, overnight;
Do not eat cruciferous vegetables regularly.
The digestive system is the root cause of many health problems, so be very careful with your gut.
