10 Diagnoses Commonly Caused By Hypothyroidism

10 Diagnoses Commonly Caused By Hypothyroidism

Every cell of the body requires thyroid hormone for proper functioning so every part of the body is at risk when someone suffers from thyroid dysfunction. Hypothyroidism sufferers present to their doctors with many symptoms. Often times their symptoms are misdiagnosed as other health conditions. Could this be happening to you?

Written by Dr. Steven Hotze, Founder of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center

Have you been experiencing any of these symptoms: unexplained weight gain, brain fog, migraine headaches, cold hands and feet, insomnia, irregular menstrual cycles, hair loss, dry skin, PMS, lack of energy, joint and muscle pain, or chronic infections? Did you know that many symptoms are given as diagnoses by mainstream doctors, when they are really signs of underlying hypothyroidism?

10 Diagnoses Commonly Caused By Hypothyroidism

Have you visited your doctor only to receive prescription drugs for your symptoms?  You most likely will be denied the proper diagnosis and treatment for hypothyroidism because of a single blood test.  This is due to the unfortunate mindset cultivated by mainstream medicine that the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) blood test is the “gold standard” used to diagnose hypothyroidism, while it actually fails the majority of patients.

The TSH blood test is not the most accurate way to diagnose hypothyroidism because your thyroid gland may be producing enough thyroid hormones and cause the TSH blood test to fall within the normal range. However, your cells may not be able to use those hormones efficiently, which is why you still have symptoms of hypothyroidism.

These symptoms are not “all in your head.” Always ask your doctor “WHY am I having these symptoms?” It is important to find a doctor who will listen to you and evaluate your clinical symptoms and history, and who uses desiccated thyroid for treatment. I strongly suggest all thyroid patients become experts in their thyroid health by referring to my book Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed.

Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness

Millions of Americans may be suffering unknowingly and needlessly from hypothyroidism. They are often told their blood test came back normal and are sent home without a clear diagnosis.
