Do you suffer from a thyroid condition? Or, do you suspect that you may have a thyroid problem even though your blood work results came back normal? You might be one of 27 million Americans suffering from thyroid conditions. Many people with thyroid conditions suffer from symptoms for 10-20 years before results in any blood work. Why does this happen? Despite this epidemic, current testing ranges are not seeking optimal ranges and doctors aren’t running the correct tests to really evaluate the health of your thyroid. In other words, they are missing the problem with standard thyroid tests!
Facts About U.S. Thyroid Conditions:

If you are asking yourself:
“Why am I gaining weight? No matter how much I diet I can’t seem to lose weight.”
“Why am I losing so much hair? It doesn’t seem to stop, and even my eyebrows are thinning.”
“Why am I so tired all the time? Even when I get a good night sleep it doesn’t seem to matter.”
“Some nights I can’t fall asleep! How long is this going to go on?”
“I feel so down all the time. Even when I should feel happy, I don’t.”
“Why do I feel so foggy?”
“Could it be my thyroid? But, I’ve been to doctors, and they say that everything is fine.”
If you are asking yourself about any of these symptoms, believe it or not, it could very well be your thyroid! So, why don’t some medical doctors see this in any of your blood work and tests? The truth is that medical doctors are missing thyroid problems with their usual standard tests!
