As a result, individual symptoms are treated instead of the real underlying cause. Or worse, your doctor might say that you’re just being paranoid or a hypochondriac, making you feel like you complaining too much and your health problems are made up, when in fact you need help!

Hypothyroidism affects both men and women, but women are generally more vulnerable. Out of every 10 who suffer, eight are women. And by age 60, one in every five women will likely suffer from thyroid problems. According to surveys taken by both the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and the Thyroid Service of Harvard Medical School estimate that about 10% of women over 50 have a degree of Low Thyroid Function.

It is estimated that more than 20 million Americans suffer from thyroid concerns. But research reveals that number is likely much higher. In a study of 370 adults, 40% had current or past thyroid troubles ranging from mild to severe. If that’s true of the whole population, then over 120 million Americans are suffering.

The Thyroid Gland.

The thyroid gland is one of the most important glands in your body.  The ancient Greeks knew this, that’s why “THYROID” comes from the Greek word Thureos, which means “shield”.

Your thyroid is a small gland weighing less than an ounce; But it has the enormous responsibility to combine Iodine you ingest with the amino acid L-Tyrosine to produce Thyroxine (T4--because it has four Iodine atoms) and Tri-iodothyronine (T3--because of one less iodine atom) hormones.

Alarmingly, a lot of doctors miss them altogether. One reason is that typical thyroid tests, such as the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) test, are notoriously inaccurate. Another is that doctors often mistake the symptoms as those of other disorders relating to the heart, cholesterol, or even memory problems.

“…despite its prevalence in older individuals, an under-active thyroid is one of the MOST OVERLOOKED CONDITIONS in patients 60 and over… in one instance, only 10% of people were properly diagnosed in their primary clinical examination.”

—World Health Organization (WHO)

These hormones are essential to life. They are carried in your bloodstream to almost every cell, tissue and organ to metabolize oxygen and calories into energy. They enable your heart, brain, liver, kidneys, muscles, and other organs not only to function, but to perform at their best.

Not all of these symptoms mentioned may develop. But bear in mind that having just one or two can be life changing.

Since many of these symptoms tend to develop slowly and quietly over a long period of time, and often not all at the same time, it’s easy to dismiss them as part of ageing.
