Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat & Tired?
Could you unknowingly be suffering dangerous type 2 hypothyroidism because it has not been correctly diagnosed?
The most common cause of fatigue and weight gain is hypothyroidism. Common symptoms include waking up tired struggling through the day, napping, and easily falling asleep watching TV. Other symptoms include dry skin, thinning hair, loss of the outer 1/3 of your eyebrows, cold hands and feet, brain fog, constipation, headaches, and depression.
Many people who suffer these symptoms have type 2 hypothyroidism. Unfortunately, most traditionally trained health care providers are only aware of the less common type 1 hypothyroidism that is detected by a blood test. Since there is no blood test for type 2 hypothyroidism, most people go untreated struggling through life.
Not only is this a hopeless way to live, but dangerous since type 2 hypothyroidism is an underlying cause of heart disease, high cholesterol, and immune problems including cancer.
This is completely unnecessary. There is a simple in-home test you can do to confirm if you have type 2 hypothyroidism. Working with an informed integrative medicine provider who has been trained in the diagnosis and treatment of the type 2 form can help you reclaim your life.
