I have decided to put another blog post out that collects all the great research papers I have talked about on my website blog into one place. I used many of these in the writing of 'The Thyroid Patient's Manual'.
Here is a guest blog that I wrote for Hypothyroid Mom. It discusses my own battle with hypothyroidism, the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) that I was given and the eventual use of T3 to heal myself.
This is another great new article that points the way to a better way of thyroid treatment, which is more focused on relieving patient symptoms.
It points out the many flaws in relying on TSH and other lab tests alone as a means of assessing whether thyroid patients are adequately treated. It concludes with reference to the increasing rate of patient complaints over the non-relief of symptoms under the current flawed paradigm of lab test focused treatment.
Chasing 'Ideal' Thyroid Lab Test Results is the Road to Nowhere
During the 1970s the shift to a lab-test-centric model with T4 medication was the start of conveyor-belt thyroid treatment. It was much easier and faster for the doctors treating thyroid patients. However, it leaves many patients under-medicated or improperly treated.
