Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism
Dr. Samantha Du Moulin attended Dr. Kharrazian’s seminar last year on hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s.
Dr. Kharrazian has written a wonderful book Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms, When My Lab Tests are Normal.
Dr. Du Moulin highly recommends this book to not only everyone who has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, but to anyone who struggles with fatigue, depression, anxiety, hair loss, edema (swollen joints and extremities), insomnia, gastrointestinal disturbances, inability to loose weight, mood instability, food intolerances and allergies, fertility issues, and lack of motivation and sex drive.
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, over-conversion to T3, and other metabolic factors drive hypothyroidism symptoms
