Episode 239 Reason’s Your Thyroid May Be Under Attack

On this Episode we covered all things Thyroid.
Here is the all-too-common scenario……..
A patient is feeling tired, putting on weight easily, and may feel down mentally and emotionally. The patient goes to their doctor and has a general blood test done. The results show hypothyroidism, which is low thyroid. The patient wonders how in the world they ended up having hypothyroidism.
Medical research tells us that about 85% of adult cases of hypothyroidism are caused by an autoimmune disease, where the immune system attacks thyroid cells and causes inflammation and destruction of thyroid tissue. As a result, the thyroid gland may not be able to produce enough thyroid.
