What your doctor hasn’t told you about hypothyroidism, and what you need to know
- For 90% of Americans, hypothyroidism is caused by Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune thyroid disease
- Thyroid replacements–Synthroid, Armour, Cytomel–may normalize TSH, but they do not manage the autoimmune disease symptoms
- You should avoid gluten strictly—studies link gluten intolerance with Hashimoto’s
- Pituitary function plays a role in underactive thyroid symptoms
- Adrenal function plays a role in underactive thyroid symptoms
- Thyroid hormone resistance, underconversion to T3, overconversion to T3, and other metabolic factors drive hypothyroidism symptoms
