You can’t imagine how many times I’ve been asked these questions by Hypothyroid Mom readers. I’m always on the lookout for great material to help answer these questions and I’ve found it here in this guest article by a health guru I love to follow, Dr. Josh Axe. I’m thrilled to include him at Hypothyroid Mom.

Please note these remedies mentioned in this article are not meant to replace your thyroid hormone replacement medication. Always speak to your doctor before making any changes to your medication protocol or starting supplements to be sure they are right for you. My goal at Hypothyroid Mom is to share all the possible treatments for hypothyroidism in the hope that you find what works for you. I personally take thyroid medication every day.

Yes it’s possible and I hope the same for you.

Constipation: The Embarrassing Hypothyroidism Symptom That May Save Lives

Constipation: The Embarrassing Hypothyroidism Symptom That May Save Lives

June 2003, New York City

“Dana, we recommend the first colonoscopy at age 50. You are only 33 years old. I highly doubt it is necessary. However given your father’s recent colon cancer diagnosis and your current symptoms, we will schedule your colonoscopy.’

“Dana, we will begin the procedure now, it shouldn’t take long.”

“Dana, we removed a large size colon polyp. Fortunately it is benign. I can’t believe the size of this polyp considering you are only 33 years old. I don’t know what would have happened if you had waited until age 50 for your first colonoscopy. Thank your father. He may have saved your life today.”

I would like to thank my father for encouraging me years ago to speak with my doctor about a topic that was too embarrassing to discuss – my lifelong constipation. My dad is no longer with us, but I know he is watching over me right now as I type this article. By sharing our story, we may save the life of a reader here today. Thank you Dad.
