TopicDiagnosing and Treating Thyroid Disease
Thyroid Rescue 911 There is a major problem with testing for thyroid problems. The blood tests are horrible at detecting thyroid problems. A vast majority of people who need thyroid hormone treatment have normal blood tests.
The problems a thyroid imbalance can cause if untreated are dangerous. The fatigue and weight gain are one thing, but it can also cause infertility, a 400% rise is miscarriages, a 68-69% increase in heart attacks, and many more problems.
So, if the blood test won't work, then what do you do to find out if you have a thyroid disorder? Well the symptoms can tell you. If you have unexplained chronic fatigue, weight gain, pain, cold intolerant, or infertile you should have the chance to try a thyroid treatment.
