Thyroid & Adrenal Issues

The most common complaint amongst all patients in America today are fatigue and insomnia. A close second are anxiety, pain and depression. Most have no idea that this can be caused by physical problems, problems that are not in their head. According to different statistics more than 20 million people suffer from a thyroid disorder, more than 10 million women have low-grade thyroid imbalance, and the same amount of people with thyroid imbalance remain undiagnosed or, in the words of Shames and Shames: “although extremely common, low thyroid is largely an unsuspected illness. Even when suspected, it is frequently undiagnosed. When it is diagnosed it often goes untreated. When it is treated, it is seldom treated optimally.”

Patients are relieved when they are told something wrong, which is quite ironic, given that so many Drs. have told them the contrary. This is quite disturbing, and it is one of the reasons why I chose to expand my practice to aid in hormonal problems.

Symptoms of underactive thyroid (Hypothyroidism) can resemble symptoms of numerous other diseases. Although there are various “classic” hypothyroid symptoms related to the low metabolism such as tiredness, fatigue, depression, obesity, coldness, high cholesterol, slow thinking, speech and movements, there are also many other lesser known symptoms. These symptoms, which include mania, hyperactivity, anxiety, palpitations and insomnia, may be related to deficiency of T3 in brain cells. T3 (trijodothyronin) is an active thyroid hormone that works in all cells of the body versus T4 (thyroxine which is nonactive hormone, produced by thyroid gland. One of the major health problem can be connected to poor transformation of T4 to T3 due to low adrenal gland function. It is interesting to note a recent report that hypothyroidism may effect brain size. A more comprehensive list of symptoms is as follows.
