Did you know that about 50 million people in the US alone have problems with their thyroid, yet 60% of them don’t even know it that they have it?
I was diagnosed with hypothyrodism in my early 20s and I made A LOT of mistakes over the years …
The kinds of mistakes that people with hypothyrodism or Hashimoto’s make all the time – and the mistakes that can sabotage your health.
I talk about the 3 myths about hypothyrodism and Hashimoto’s in my video today:
Hypothyrodism And Hashimoto’s
The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in your throat. It serves as the body’s thermostat, continuously regulating things like temperature, hunger levels and energy expenditure.
Thyroid problems can cause a wide variety of symptoms.
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis affects 14 million people in the United States alone, making it the most common thyroid disorder in America. (1)
The American Thyroid Association reports that one in eight women in the United States is impacted by a thyroid disorder at some point during their lifetime. (2)
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder, which means your body attacks it’s own thyroid.
If you have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, you are at a higher risk of developing other autoimmune disorders and, to a lesser extent, a specific form of thyroid cancer.
Other autoimmune diseases that can happen due to Hashimoto’s include Addison’s disease, (3) which can result in an adrenal crisis and damage adrenal glands.
It can also result in Lupus and arthritis.
Symptoms of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Generally speaking, people suffering from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis will display more than one symptom and they can include:
- Fatigue and sluggishness
- Increased sensitivity to cold
- Low libido
- Pale, dry skin
- A puffy face
- Hair loss
- Hoarse voice
- Unexplained weight gain
- Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
- Excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
So what are some of the common mistakes that people make when it comes to addressing their thyroid disorders?
