Thyroflex Test: When you are being treated for hypothyroidism but still feel awful

Thyroflex Test: When you are being treated for hypothyroidism but still feel awful

When I was a little girl, I would squeal with delight as I ran through the park picking up every dandelion I could find and making a wish. The other day I saw a dandelion and had a flash of myself as a child. I smiled as I blew and made a wish. This time my wish was that every hypothyroid person following Hypothyroid Mom finds wellness. I don’t mean just feeling “alright”. I mean feeling INCREDIBLE. There is hope to feel incredible with hypothyroidism. I know because hope happened to me.

My very own thyroid doctor, Dr. Hugh Melnick, is offering an incredibly generous prize to celebrate Hypothyroid Mom’s fifth anniversary. I’m feeling fantastic today thanks to him and now 5 giveaway winners (one winner for each of Hypothyroid Mom’s 5 years!) will receive a free consultation with him (worth $350 each) that will change their lives. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this article. Dr. Melnick’s office is located in New York City. If you live nearby, you will have the chance to win a free in-person thyroid consultation in his Upper East Side office including the Thyroflex thyroid test. If you don’t live near New York City (let me just say that it would be well worth a trip to New York City to see Hugh for an in-person consultation with the Thyroflex test), still enter the giveaway because Dr. Melnick has helped so many thyroid patients around the world via phone or Skype consultations as well.

Hugh has hypothyroidism. Yes, men get hypothyroidism too. He knows what it’s like to be hypothyroid because he lives it himself. [Read more…]
