Tired of Being Sick and Tired Book
Underactive thyroid conditions are epidemic in this country. Dr. Berglund decided to write this book after seeing countless patients come to him after another doctor’s lab testing showed their thyroid to be fine. Yet a thorough history and examination revealed many of the symptoms consistent with hypothyroidism or low thyroid. Berglund believes we have become too dependent on lab tests alone to validate normal thyroid function. And if your thyroid is running too low, you can eat perfectly and take tons of vitamins and still feel sick. The hormones are there, but the function just isn’t. In this book you’ll learn the truth about thyroid problems that your doctor may not be telling you, such as:
. The typical treatment of low thyroid includes using a synthetic thyroid hormone replacement (T4) but does not provide for the other, more active hormone, T3.
. Traditional thyroid medications can actually lead to the thyroid gland becoming less productive.
. In some cases, low thyroid doesn’t show up on lab tests.
