Have you ever been told by your loved one or friend that you are a hypochondriac? Have you been diagnosed or treated for a psychosomatic illness?  Has your well meaning doctor suspected that you have hypothyroidism and ordered a panel of blood tests for this condition? Only to find, when the results come back, that all the tests were normal?
Yes, you were more than likely disappointed and frustrated and you had many unanswered questions.

  • Do I really have a problem or is it truly… all in my head?
  • Is the thyroid blood test the problem?
  • Could it be a laboratory error?

Do you realize that there are a multitude of conditions that are commonly associated with hypothyroidism? (3 and clinical experience)

Here are some of the most common (4):

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Menstrual related disorder
  • Infertility
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Triglycerides
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Candida
  • Obesity
  • Acne
  • Hair Loss
  • Constipation
  • Dry Skin
  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Dullness/confusion
  • Poor mental functioning

Thyroid blood tests have high false positive and high false negative results.

The thyroid blood test is the most indirect test to assess thyroid function. The unfortunate state of affairs is that the ideal test for hypothyroidism is not even achievable or doable. (1)

“What we ideally need to measure is the amount of thyroid hormone on the inside of each cell in the body where it controls the rate of oxidation of fuel burning within the cell”. Broda Barnes

It is obvious of course why such a test is impossible since there are about 60-70 trillion cells in the body.

It has been estimated that about 60% of the population are undiagnosed with subclinical hypothyroid or low grade thyroid function. Why is that? Because too much reliance is on thyroid blood test numbers and not on your clinical picture … how you look and how you feel.

“because of the unreliability of laboratory tests that have failed to show the deficiency even when doctors could see its manifestation clearly enough in patients before them and while laboratory tests have erred and have misled both doctors and patients, patients have suffered”. Broda Barnes

You may be one of the many people who may be suffering from minute imbalances that have not yet resulted in abnormal blood tests. If we included people with low grade thyroid function whose blood tests are normal, the frequency of hypothyroidism would no doubt exceed 60% of the population.

What is of special concern though is that you may be one of the many people whose blood test results are dismissed as normal, when in fact you continue to suffer with symptoms of under active thyroid. You may be moody, tired and your overall well being affected by this imbalance. Sadly, you are not receiving the care you need to get to the root of your problems.

Consider also the collateral damage from hypothyroidism that can lead to:

  • Heart disease
  • Circulatory blockage
  • High triglycerides
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems

If you have already been diagnosed and/or treated for low thyroid you should also take this little quiz. A troubling percentage of treated patients continue to have thyroid related symptoms, even after their blood tests return to normal.

Do you…

  • have unusual fatigue unrelated to exertion?
  • feel chillier than most people, often needing to wear socks to bed?
    dress in layers because of needing to adjust to various temperatures throughout the day (sometimes too hot, sometimes too cold)?
  • have feelings of anxiety that sometimes lead to panic?
  • have trouble with weight, often eating lightly, yet still not losing a pound?
  • experience aches and pains in your muscles and joints unrelated to trauma or exercise?
  • have increased problems with digestion or allergies?
  • feel mentally sluggish, unfocused, or unusually forgetful, even though you’re not old enough to have Alzheimers?
  • know of anyone in your family who has ever had a thyroid problem (even yourself at an earlier age)?
  • suffer from dry skin, or are prone to adult acne or eczema?
  • go through periods of depression, and/or lowered sex drive, seemingly out of proportion to life events?
  • have diabetes, anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, or early graying of hair? Does anyone in your family?
  • experience your hair as feeling like straw, dry and easily falling out?
  • experience significant menopausal symptoms, including headaches, without full relief after taking estrogen?
  • have a history of whiplash or other neck injuries (which may have damaged your thyroid)?
  • have significant exposure, now or in the past, to chlorine, bromine, or fluoride (which compete with iodine in your thyroid)?
  • feel utterly exhausted by evening, yet have trouble sleeping?
    do you wake up tired?

If you answered yes to four or more of these questions, you could be one of the millions of people with an undiagnosed or under-treated low thyroid problem. 3
Because of the many people treated for thyroid who continue to have symptoms of hypothyroidism, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists in 2003 changed its guidelines for optimal TSH values in patients receiving thyroid replacement therapy. The old reference values ranged from 0.5 to 5.0 uiu/ml. The new guideline value ranges from 0.3 to 3.0 uiu/ml.

Of all the problems that can affect physical or mental health, none is more common than thyroid gland disorders. Yet, none is more readily and inexpensively coffected. And none is more often untreated, or even unsuspected.
Hypothyroidism – low thyroid function – is one of the thyroid gland disorders that many people suffer from without even realizing it. It can be the cause of some of the most common complaints heard by doctors. It may be responsible for chronic headaches, repeated infections, unyielding skin problems or circulatory difficulties. Even more frightening, it can be a major factor in heart disease, lung cancer and emphysema. And it is responsible for many emotional and mental disturbances, as researched by Broda Barnes, author of “Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness”.
You need to be aware of this emerging evidence…..you can be hypothyroid despite normal blood tests.
This explains the common frustration in people who do not get help despite their continued suffering from fatigue, mood swings, depression, obesity or difficulty concentrating.
This desperate search for help is one of the reasons why many people across the state of Wisconsin and neighboring states turn to our clinic after having sought relief from conventional physicians. If you are unsure what may be causing your pain and suffering, we may be the clinic that can help you find the answer.

DESPITE BEING UNDER DOCTOR’S CARE, I FELT VERY SICK………..

When I made my 1st appointment with Dr. Kadile it was out of desperation. Because despite being under Drs care, I felt very sick.
I was on medication, but I still had heartburn and indigestion most of the past 5 years. In addition, I would have violent episodes of pain and vomiting. I also had continuous and quite severe back pain. I lacked energy, didn’t sleep well and had episodes of depression.
Dr. Kadile checked me for allergies and discovered that I had numerous allergies especially food that was making me so ill. With diet modification, enzymes and allergy drops, I’ve made a big improvement. I’m so thankful to find the cause of my distress and pain.
He also discovered my thyroid was low. Since being on thyroid medication, I’ve lost weight, have more energy and I sleep better. My back is improving also.
I’m in the health field and thought I was knowledgeable, but there was a lot I didn’t know. I’m very thankful to Dr. Kadile for helping me. I’m sure he saved my life!!!!

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME BACK MY LIFE………..
I came to your office four short months ago, praying that you would listen and that you would have the answers. After a year of mistreatment of my health, I had just fired two doctors; one of them had been taking good care of me for over 30 years, but he really let me down in this past year. I had been diagnosed with goiter and hypothyroidism, but over a year’s time, my symptoms and problems only kept getting worse. I felt like a hypo­ chondriac and my doctors were only telling me to “be patient” – of course you don’t feel well – you’re hypothyroid.” I knew there was more to it than that. I was told, “You’re depressed, go to Disneyland and get happy.”
When I came to see you that first day, I felt like I was only existing from day to day. My only purpose was to make it through each day. My health and my attitude was at an all time low. I could tell at my first visit that you were different. You really listened to what was going on with me and you gave me reassurance that there was more going on than this thyroid thing and we would find the answers. I left that appointment hopeful.
I have seen positive improvements in my health ever since we began on my treatment plan. Yes, it was more than a thyroid problem, but the other doctors never looked past that. When the test results were in, you took immediate action and told me that the most important thing was for me to feel better. The fact is that you talk to me and together we decide what the next step is. Other doctors talk about being partners in your health, but Dr. Kadile, you really practice it. There are many issues that we are addressing now. I realize that it will take time to repair the damage that this mistreatment of my health has done to my body, but I’m seeing progress in my health all the time. Most importantly, you have shown me that there is life after hypothyroidism. I am confident that, with your help, I can again be in control of my health and my life.
Thank you again for your care and support. You and your staff make me feel like you really do care and we are in this together. I will always consider you to be my hero. You have given me back myself.

“HE RAN A BUNCH OF TESTS FROM LYMES DISEASE TO THYROID TESTS TO ARTHRITIS TESTS AND COULD COME UP WITH NOTHING”…………..

My name is Bill S. and currently am 51 years of age. In general my health has been good through my life. Some years ago at the age of 43 or so, I began to experience some tiredness and general lack of ambition. My motivation was not what it usually was and just didn’t feel well. This went on for about a year before I finally went to see my Doctor whom I had known for some 20 years. He ran a bunch of tests from Lymes Disease to Thyroid Tests to arthritis tests and could come up with nothing. After several visits I was advised to exercise more and eat better. Both of which I had previously done. I continued to struggle as I slowly lost more ambition and energy. It became difficult to get any work done. I was getting scared something bad was wrong. I had actually seen an endocrinologist with my health care provider and was told nothing was wrong with me.

One day while reading the newspaper I saw an article asking if the reader had experienced any of the approximately 15 symptoms listed. I ran down the list and discovered that I had been experiencing about a dozen of the symptoms. The add intrigued me enough to call and sign up for the seminar.

Attending the seminar I learned a lot. I scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Kadile. I was impressed with the information he requested and how he didn’t rush me out of his office. We spent about 1.5 hours talking about me and my issues. After running a few blood tests, he quickly suspected that I had Hypothyroid based on my symptoms. This was confirmed with the addition of a prescription of Armour Thyroid medication. Results were immediate. I noticed an improvement in my mental ability to focus and get things done. Other physical symptoms were also relieved and disappeared.

With the assistance of Dr. Kadile, I began doing some reading and research in Hypothyroidism. I learned a lot about this often misdiagnosed illness. Over the past few years I have taken my children to see Dr. Kadile because of suspected Thyroid issues with each of them. All had different symptoms and issues to deal with.

My first son was in his sophomore year at college when I noticed some changes. He was always sleeping when I would call or stop in. During his summer job working behind a computer, he would arrive home at 4:15pm and immediately take a nap for two hours. He began struggling in school after doing quite well his entire life. Something was not right. I had him see my family doctor who told him also to exercise more and eat better. He also told him to establish better study habits which really upset me and my son. I insisted on trying some Thyroid medication. The doctor was very reluctant but finally agreed to give it a shot. He did tell me we were wasting our time and that Thyroid medication would not help. Guess what, it made a huge difference in his life.

My second son was diagnosed with ADD in his sophomore year in high school. He was treated with Adderall which made a huge difference. After being on the Adderall for about 5 years, we introduced Armour Thyroid to him. He is a complete different person today than before. Much better energy levels and appetite. More focused on college where he is currently a Senior. He still uses a little Adderall when he has a big exam but tells me frequently that I can take his Adderall away but do not take his Thyroid Medication away. He has become an active young man and is no longer teased about being a couch potato.

My daughter had issues with her growth, mental brain fog, lactose intolerance and being tired. After being nearly a straight A student in her first two years of high school she began to struggle and became depressed. We brought her to our family doctor who prescribed Prozac. We would not let her start down that path. We brought her to Madison Children’s Hospital where many tests were done. We were told there was nothing wrong with her. After an hour phone conversation two months after the tests were done, the physician very reluctantly agreed to my request to try Armour Thyroid. Again, results were instantaneous and very positive.

My story actually dates back about 7 years from this writing. All in the family are now doing fine and healthy again thanks to the life saving help from Dr. Kadile. I have sent several friends and family to see Dr. Kadile, all with excellent results. My brother had been diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, was about 40 years old, had lost
over 40 pounds and looked like he was 70 years old. It was clearer he was getting worse. Now, after seeing Dr. Kadile, he is back to work, gained his weight back, his hair has grown back and he is as healthy today as ever.

Many thanks to Dr. Kadile for his efforts to help make peoples lives better and for thinking outside the bubble.

“NOT ONLY DID MY SYMPTOMS CLEAR UP BUT I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I HAVE IN YEARS”………….

I have been a patient of Dr. E. Kadile for about 3 years. I sought out Dr. Kadile’s help after not getting any satisfaction from the traditional medical community. I had the same symptoms for years. Chronic fatigue, low body temperature (at least 2 degrees below normal), cold hands and feet, dry skin and several more. My personal physician suspected that it might be my thyroid and ran the standard blood test. My results were always the same. It always comes up within normal ranges, however, just makes it into the normal range. Since there is a family history of thyroid disease after a few years my doctor suggested I see an Endocrinologist and so I did. The results were the same. Her performed the standard blood test and told me virtually the same thing. My results were within normal guidelines, however on the low side of normal, and no treatment would be necessary at this time.

A few more years went by before I finally went to Dr. Kadile for help. He ran several tests, some for allergies and of course the results of the thyroid blood test were the same. This time, Dr. Kadile, gave me some options. Do nothing, see a specialist, which I had already done, or try Armour Thyroid medication to see if my body required the hormone. The results were overwhelming. Not only did my symptoms clear up but I have felt better than I have in years. Without this option I would still be searching for answers. I am so thankful for the opportunity to use an alternative to conventional medical treatment.
