Some 20 million Americans are affected by thyroid disorders….that’s 1 in 13 people!
And more than half of those people are unaware that they have a thyroid problem because it frequently goes undiagnosed….until it gets severe. According to the National Women’s Health Information Center, one in eight women will experience a thyroid disorder during their lifetime.
This fact may surprise you because you’ve probably never heard it explained to you fully. This is because most doctors are only vaguely familiar with thyroid disorders.
For many doctors, the only treatment considered for hypothyroidism and other conditions of the thyroid is medication, usually in the form of hormone replacement pills. Dr. Nick Ungaro, a prominent NYC thyroid specialist, feels that this type of treatment is the equivalent of slapping a Band-Aid on the problem and calling it good.
Additionally, since you can have the symptoms of hypothyroidism and still have medically normal levels of thyroid hormone, your symptoms may get written off and never properly addressed, leaving you feeling that you are to blame for your sluggish metabolism and inability to lose weight.
For the most part, medical doctors form of Hashimoto’s treatment involves thyroid replacement medication. While this type of treatment will reduce the symptoms of the disease, you must take the medication for the rest of your life. Dr. Nick Ungaro, a thyroid specialist in NYC, has a better solution which involves a natural and drug free approach to Hasimoto’s treatment.
The thyroid “runs” our metabolism. It is the “gas pedal” of the body. Thyroid hormones have a direct effect 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. It’s more important for cellular function, and in fact, 80% of T4 is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues. Basically, T4 is just a precursor for the more active hormone, T3.
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. There are some clinicians that are treating thyroid conditions with iodine. I do not recommend iodine in the treatment of thyroid conditions. According to renowned thyroid expert Dr. Datis Kharriazian, author of the book “Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?”, using iodine to treat thyroid conditions is like throwing gasoline on a fire.
