Thyroid gland disturbances negatively affect the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans. Unfortunately, it is underdiagnosed and undertreated in many cases, leading to chronic illness − both mental and physical.
Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, is a condition many people suffer from without even realizing it. They may struggle with their weight despite watching what they eat and exercising, and they may feel fatigued all the time. It can cause headaches, repeated infections, skin problems that never completely clear up, and circulatory issues. Having an improperly functioning thyroid has been linked to heart disease, lung cancer, emphysema and several emotional and mental disturbances.
Those living in the Midwest are especially at risk for hypothyroidism, and it is the goiter capital of the United States due to iodine deficiencies.
Unfortunately, most standard blood tests cannot adequately test for thyroid dis-function since thyroid hormones influence every cell in the body. With over 70 trillion cells composing the human body, it is impossible to test every cell thus leaving plenty of room for error
when it comes to diagnosing hypothyroidism.
