Re: The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It: here it comes, the inevitable.
I just turned 21 and I discovered a lot of my issues are thyroid related.

I have a great digestive system and usually a lot of energy, but when I get tired I am literally drained to the point where I get very light headed and on the verge of passing out. I will hear a high ringing and the image I see shifts and melts.

Since a very young age, I've also had issues where high levels of activity leave me lethargic and my neck begins to swell and it triggers a dull almost bruise like pain.

Don't know if it's due in part, but my blood pressure is all over the place. High right now, very low later.

I also started researching o- and other blood types. It was funny to see bugs really do go after the o blood first! And o- is highest likely for thyroid issues. I also have a severe lack of iodine.

Hell the family has cancer problems already.

Any tips?

I retain water and my legs and gut are pretty fatty compared to the rest of my body, but they are slowly shrinking with a better diet.

You all should look into "Eat Right 4 Your Type." Very good book all about each blood type and what foods you should eat.

Re: The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It: here it comes, the inevitable.
Sorry about the wall of text, I tried to condense the story but being concise is apparently not one of my talents.

I have thought about posting about this for a while but for some reason have been hesitant. I'm not real big on sharing personal information online but with the discussion taking place here maybe now is the time to share my story as a warning to others.

I had been having many symptoms of hypothyroidism for a little over a year. Although my blood test showed mild hypothyroidism my doctor kept telling me there was nothing to worry about. If it got any worse he might put me on medication.

In December 2011 I was felling quite bad. I was so tired. I felt like my body was made of lead. In the span of 3 months I had put on 20 pounds although I was actually eating less than usual. The worst part of it was that it was affecting my ability to think clearly, my memory was seriously hindered. There were other things but I won't ramble on about them all.

So I go back to my doctor. He ignores everything I tell him about except for the weight gain. He says well obviously your taking in more calories than your burning. His suggestion was diet pills! Now let me make something clear, I've been mildly overweight since my mid twenties but my weight had been stable never varying more than a few pounds in the 15 years I'd been going to him. This was something far out of the norm for me.

That day he runs some more blood work, it comes back abnormal again. Once again he says it's not bad enough to warrant thyroid medication and that I should consider diet medication. I told him that I wanted to see an endocrinologist. He could either refer me or I would find my own. He reluctantly referred me.

The first thing the new doc did was an ultrasound. There was a large (I forget the exact size) mass on the right side of my thyroid. Further test, scans, biopsies, ext. confirmed that it was cancer. My entire thyroid was compromised. In Feb 2012 my thyroid was removed. Once the surgeon was in he found that the cancer has spread to the muscle tissue in my neck.

After the surgery it appears through multiple scans that everything had been dealt with and that the cancer was gone. I jubilant knowing that I had beat it. I shouldn't have jumped the gun on that one.

1 year ago I went back to my endocrinologist. During a routine scan it was discovered that there were now tumors on the thyroid bed. So now it's on to radiation treatment. I've been given courses of radioactive iodine I-131. It's certainly not as bad as Chemo but it was quite unpleasant. So, after all of the radiation I go through all of the testing again and appear to have been cured.

A week ago toady I went back to my endocrinologist. It appears that I now have a mass on one of my parathyroids. I've spent the last week undergoing more test and am awaiting the results.

Well, if your still with me =), I have shared all of this today with the hope that my story might save someone else from going through what I have since Dec. 2011. If I had pushed my doctor harder, if I'd refused to just accept that it “was no big deal” This cancer would have been caught earlier and would have been much easier to “cure” I wouldn't still be dealing with it a year in a half or so later.

I implore you, listen to your body. You know when something is just not right. It may not be something just blatantly obvious to your doctor but you know something bad is happening in your body. If you think you may be having thyroid issue please, Please be an advocate for your self and insist that your issues are properly evaluated by a specialist. I wish every day that I had stood stronger and pushed harder to get my problems evaluated. Please don't make the same mistake I did.

Something to ad to the thread. My endocrinologist has said in the past year or so the number of Thyroid cancer patients he sees has tripled.
 Quoting: Zuzu


I'm so sorry to hear your story. I'm not usually a litigious person but in your case I think I'd bring a malpractice case against that first doctor. What an ass.

My husband also had thyroid cancer, as did his brother. They grew up in a military family living on bases through their childhoods. He's had the surgery and the radiation and seems to be cured. But he's still worried and goes back for regular checks.

The somewhat amusing thing about his case is that it all started with a TOE FUNGUS. Ha ha! He had a toe fungus and the doctor required him to get a liver test before prescribing the med for it. The liver test showed elevated enzymes and from there they did more tests and that led to the thyroid.
 Quoting: berniemom2012


Toe fungus! that's crazy. I sincerely hope that is was caught early and he lives a nice long cancer free life. Sounds like his Doc is doing a good job, tracing thyroid cancer from toe fungus. Amazing,

It has passed my mind that I could file a law suit against the first doc. But to be honest, right now I just don't have energy to take on all of the activities that must be dealt with in a lawsuit. Maybe, if the statute of limitations has not run out I might look into legal options when I'm feeling a bit stronger

Potassium iodide saturates the thyroid so it can't absorb any radioactive iodine (the body doesn't know the difference).

But it's mainly for children and teens, adults don't benefit from it much and it only protects the thyroid.

You MUST learn the exact recipe to make a solution (google) and you must do it right.

I don't think the potassium iodide is going to help much though at this point.

I have been pretty healthy my whole life.

I'm 36 now, but a few years ago I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and a few months later I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus.

I now take 100mg synthroid for my thyriod and plaquenil for the lupus.

What the hell happened to me?

Always healthy, then not.

A few questions for you:

Have you ever had urinary tract infection (or vaginal infection if you're a woman)? If so, how many times and what were you treated with?

Have you ever had minor surgery with inhaled anesthesia? If so how many times?
 Quoting: berniemom2012


A few UTI's in my life time.

When I was 12 I had a laparoscopy done and was diagnosed with a severe case of endometriosis (4 years ago I had to do in vitro fertilization to have my twin girls.)

When I was 21 I had a tubal pregnancy and had to have an emergency salpingectomy. (removal of my tube)

I have been put under anesthesia at least 5 times in my life.

Why do you ask?

I was posted in W. Germany when Chernobyl tripped off the line. I'm hypothyroid and will be taking Synthroid for the rest of my life. I have been trying to use supplements to kick my thyroid into gear.

So far no luck. Don't let it happen to you!
 Quoting: Conjure Woman


Synthroid? Don't take it. It's only T4 and you need a balance with T3 as well. Not everyone can convert T4 to T3 very well.

I recommend nature throid or armour thyroid.
 Quoting: SevenThunders


I was Dx last year with HypoT. I cannot tolerate T3. There's a huge push on taking Armour. Tried a 2.5 mcg of cytomel, terrible side effects. Tried a 1/4 grain, side effects were awful. Not everyone can tolerate the additional T3 unfortunately.

Tolerated Levoxyl....pharma has now pulled from shelves. Pharma changed the Armour couple of years ago too. It's interesting how thyroid meds help, and then pharma comes in and changes the ingredients or pulls it off the shelves. Leaving us with a limited choice of thyroid help, while thyroid Dx keep going up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43617010


on the contrary about armour. most docs would rather give synthetic and you may not have the conversion problem.thyroid over years is like dealing with blood pressure it changes. amounts and meds change.

My great grandma had a huge goiter, my grandma has a decent one, and my mom had her thyroid removed because of goiter and thyroid issues. I'm 30 now and I've had a small goiter for a year or two but haven't gotten it checked due to no health insurance. I believe mine might just be in the jeans, we've always had well water anywhere I've lived, I don't drink coffee, just some iced tea once in a while. I keep thinking I should try taking some iodine supplements.

I also recently started juicing for my health, and I stopped eating meat in Oct. of last year. Here's hoping I stay healthy.

Seems that everyone in the country has high blood preasure and heart problems these days. As a results they are told to avoide salt. That is the reason for the thyroid problems! And like someone else posted, not all salt has iodine in it. Did you know that there are several different kinds of salts? Most use table salt, but sea salt is better then that and pink or gray salt is better then table salt and a third salt that runs $100./lb is even better then the others.

Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, Prevent Disease
Waking Times
It is estimated that over 200 million people globally (about 35 million people in North America) suffer from at least one of the many forms of thyroid disease. In fact, thyroid problems are increasing so much in frequency that scientists are calling it an epidemic. The incidence of thyroid illness occurs about seven times more frequently in women than men, and it is thought that at least 50% of the cases are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
It was recently reported that the radioactive fallout in Japan during 2011 has now caused thyroid disease in the farthest corners of the world. Children born in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washing-ton within one to sixteen weeks after the nuclear accident in Japan were 28% more likely to suffer from congenital hypothyroidism than in the preceding year.
There is also a dramatic increase in the rates of thyroid cancer, which is the fastest growing cancer in North America today. In 2010, the American Cancer Society reported 45,000 new cases. They now predict that in 2013 there will be about 60,220 new cases of thyroid cancer, and this number is expected to grow rapidly in the next decade.
According to Dr. Bruce Davidson, MD, chair of the Department of Head and Neck Surgery at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.: “We’ve seen thyroid cancer double in the last 10 years, but the general sense in the past was that there was a big pool of undiscovered thyroid cancer, and more intense diagnostics, including greater use of ultrasounds and biopsies, were resulting in better detection. Now, we know that better detection is not the only factor, and we need to investigate other factors that may be causing the increased rate of thyroid cancer.”
Chief among these other factors is the increased exposure we all have to different forms of radiation (nuclear accidents, greater use of CAT scans and other high radiation diagnostic tests, jet travel, etc.). Some experts like Davidson believe that the increased use of CAT scans in the past 20 years directly parallels the increasing incidence of thyroid cancers during the same period of time.

Re: The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It: here it comes, the inevitable.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was put on Synthroid for about 6 months. I think I managed to reverse it though because I got to a point to where the Synthroid was making me feel way worse. I ended up weaning myself off of it within a week and now it has currently been about 3 months since I have taken a Synthroid and there is significant improvement in my health. My blood work came back normal as well.

The only thing I am trying to get over now is the anxiety and panic attacks that came with the hypothyroidism.

For any of you interested as to what probably reversed my hypothyroidism I will write belooooow.

-Grounding / Earthing
Walking outside barefoot or making contact with the earth. This is legit despite how retarded and hippie-ish it sounds. I tested the electrical current running through my body with shoes on standing near a power line and I had 4 volts of electricity running through my body. After taking my shoes off and making contact with the earth it went from 4 volts to about 60ish millivolts.

If you have no choice but to be indoors all day, there are products and/or tricks you can use to ground or earth while indoors.

Simply being around walls with wiring, lights, computers, or any other electronics can have the same effect on your body. It screws with your entire endocrine system. If you have messed up adrenal glands it can make you hypo or hyperthyroid. If you have a messed up thyroid and can mess up your adrenal glands. Being on fight or flight response 24/7 is no fun. If you have a messed up pituitary gland, it can cause you to be hypo or hyperthyroid which could also mess up your adrenal glands in the process. Grounding techniques can be used to counter it or you can just make contact with the earth with bare skin for the same effect.

A lot of times doctors will diagnose you with primary hypothyroidism when it is actually secondary. If they put you on Synthroid in this situation then all they are doing is masking the symptoms if they are even successful at that.

-Diet
I changed my diet from cheap food that saves me money to much healthier foods instead. It ended up balancing itself out because with the proper diet, I was hungry less often. Beware of a lot of raw veggies because many of the decrease thyroid function. Beware of spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli especially. They are all ok if cooked though.

The diet I used was one that Dave Asprey came up with (Which is pretty close to the paleo diet). I did not buy any of his products. I just read his blogs and listened to his podcasts to educate myself. I mainly ate grass fed and hormone free beef, grass fed butter (I ate it like a candy bar sometimes), and lots of other crap. Since eating this high healthy fat diet, I have lost 28 pounds with no exercise. Although I am working out and exercising now but I lost the 28 without any.

I also ate a LOT of salt. Himalayan sea salt is the best. It may not be "iodized" but it has naturally occurring iodine so be not afraid my friend. It is also not bleached or processed and it contains over 80 trace minerals. The correct kind of salt is a super food.

I have heard where people were successful with a vegan diet but I would not recommend it. If you want to do something other than eat butter all of the time then do some research on Robb Wolf.

-Water
If you drink tap water then do yourself a favor and stop doing it. There are many things that our cities add to our water that can slow down thyroid function including the popular hydrofluorosilicic acid. I have not seen any filters on the market that can 100% filter this crap out either. If you have a friend that has well water then take advantage of it!!! If not then do your research on how to limit your hydrofluorosilicic acid intake as much as possible.

My brain is fried at the moment. I am no doctor so I am not sure how good I will be at answering any questions but I have done a boat load of research so if anyone has any questions I will gladly do the best I can to answer them.

Re: The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It: here it comes, the inevitable.
Can hypothyroidism cause you to suddenly gain mass amount of weight?

When I was around 18 years old, I gained damn near 100 lbs in under a year despite no lifestyle changes. I was active in a youth rugby league, loved to rock climb, ski, mountain bike, swim...I was very fit. I was mindful about my diet but I could have ate whatever I wanted, but I still chose to eat well.

I started putting on weight for no reason I could see. After the first 15 lbs, I just started to go to the gym more. I still kept gaining weight, so I was even more mindful about what I ate...I cut carbs, dairy, and processed sugar out of my diet completely. I still gained.

Exercise started to become very hard for me. I had no energy levels. I still pushed myself to exercise, but instead of giving me energy like before, I would be exhausted the rest of the day. On the days I pushed myself harder, I would be ill for the remainder of the day.

After 75lbs and still no solution to my weight problem, I gave up. I was heavily depressed. I gained the rest of the weight "couching it." I accepted that I was going to be a fat ass the rest of my life.

A year and half ago I made the decision to try again, and I was able to lose about 50lbs but it didnt come easy. I ate less than 1000 calories a day and ran between 3-5 miles every day. Every other day, I did 45 minutes of strength training in addition to my daily runs.

Yes, I felt sick every day as a result of this. But it was the ONlY way I could make some weight come off. Even doing this religiously, it took over a year to lose 50lbs.

My diet is carefully considered and planned each and every day. I basically only eat organic fruit, vegetables, nuts, yogurt, chicken, fish and natural sweeteners like honey, which I use in my tea every morning.

I now consume around 1200 calories a day and still run every single day. I am able to maintain my weight, but if I slack in my exercise or make changes to my diet, the weight will start to come back on. I'd like to lose more, but it just became too hard being so sick every day...I still feel tired all day, but I've learned to just deal with that. I'd rather be tired than ashamed of myself.



I plan to go to the doctors soon to run some tests to find out whats going on...I didn't go before because I didn't have health insurance and quite frankly I am scared of doctors, my moms doctor made her cry because he was ridiculing her about her weight (she's only about 10 lbs overweight) and I didnt want to face the same humiliation...even though I was humiliated every day because of my weight. SO yeah, I don't understand the logic I was using then but I was also depressed so...

Anyway, sorry for the long story GLP. I don't know if it will end up being hypothyroidism because I believe a symptom of that is a slow pulse but mine is slightly higher than it should be. But...I'm just thinking, something has to be wrong...

Re: The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It: here it comes, the inevitable.
I ordered a advanced mono atomic, IODINE, alcohol tincture, from DR BILL DEAGLE @ [link to nutrimedical.com] . WOW, does it work! 3 bottles of it over last 2 1/2 years, shared with my wife and kids. it's simply the best IODINE out there, called "NUTRIODINE". it has changed my life...my wife lost over 60 #, my brain and energy levels are better than anytime, even when i was young. i am convinced i was "OVER VACCINATED", several times, when i traveled to Europe, and also joined the military. the NUTRIODINE, got nearly ALL the mercury out of my brain, and it turned into a GAS VAPOR, going out, the cracks of my cranium and scalp. i had a few irritated lesions on my scalp for @ 6 months,along with itching, but then it went away. i must comment, that this was combined along with HAWAIIAN SUNSHINE, lot's of laying out, and proper athletic activity. i have had no thyroid conditions, but am convinced that for most people, it would at least minimum, generate new cells in the glands, and also up your hormone levels. it's $49 per 2 oz bottle, and you place it on your right wrist, and under your right ankle. follow dosing procedures, NEVER; too much. take breaks, drink lot's of water, especially alkaline water. there is a risk of severe to mild de toxing reactions in your kidneys and liver. good luck!bump

I have a similar story to yours, minus the finally having the willpower to suffer through being sick and exhausted all the time just lose a few pounds... sigh

I also have asthma, so that doesn't help me in the exercise department. Looks like I should think about getting some Lugol's iodine. Even if it won't help much with the radiation, I want to try to be as healthy as I can be in this polluted world. I guess I should also ask my doctor if it's possible that I have a thyroid problem next appointment.
