Thyroid and Women
If you are anything like me, you have been hearing a lot lately about women and the function of the thyroid. I have low thyroid symptoms with "in range" labs. My thyroid antibodies were elevated on my last bloodwork, so I was told I have the beginnings of Hashimotos. Basically, that is it. I have to wait for my levels to get out of range and then go on medication for it. Sound good? Not to me! Some people think I ask too many questions. Others say I am not a doctor so should leave that to the experts. Others that I am a hypocondriac. Me? I say I will do the best I can to make sense of it all, despite what everyone else thinks. I have had many symptoms over the past few years that I have done lots of reading and research on. The biggest being dizziness and poor balance. I discovered this article from a chiropractic neurologist in Dallas and it was quite interesting. I thought I would share it here.
I would love to hear any thoughts on this.
