Thyroid Problems

Some 20 million Americans are affected by thyroid disorders. That’s 1 in 13 people. And more than half of those people are unaware they have a thyroid problem because it frequently goes undiagnosed – until it gets severe.

According to the National Women’s Health Information Center, 1 in 8 women will experience a thyroid disorder during their lifetime. The reason why this fact may surprise you is because you’ve probably never heard it explained to you. That’s because most doctors are only vaguely familiar with thyroid disorders.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which the patient’s immune system attacks the thyroid. Patient’s that suffer from Hashimoto’s experience some or all of the above symptoms.

The Thyroid Gland:

The thyroid “runs” our metabolism. It is considered the “gas pedal” of the body.

Thyroid hormones have direct effects on most organs, including the heart, which beats faster and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones. This is why heart problems can often accompany chronic thyroid problems in women, and perhaps why heart problems are more common in women under the age of 50.

T3 is the more biologically active hormone and more important for cellular function. T4 is a precursor for T3, since 80% of T4 is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues.

One of the problems in some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues. Have you been checked for this? This can create a deficiency of T3, disrupting the body’s ability to properly regulate metabolism, which leads to specific symptoms.
