Thyroid- Underactive

Under active Thyroid (Hypothyroidism):

Your thyroid gland and your metabolism are closely related to each other. How fast you burn food and all chemical actions in the body, from making hormones and enzymes, to digesting food and re-building cells are related to your thyroid function. All these actions create heat as a side-effect. Any machine when it works becomes hot. You can find if your metabolism work efficiently by taking your body temperature.

Deficiency in thyroid hormones can affect all body functions. Following are the symptoms of sluggish thyroid:

fatigue and exhaustion
brain fog
feeling cold easily
hair loss or coarse hair
dry or coarse skin
muscle and joint weakness, stiffness or pain
weight gai
high blood pressure

The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, a hereditary condition in which the immune system attacks the thyroid. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is seven times more common in women than in men.A simple blood test can detect the thyroid function by measuring your TSH. Some people can go undiagnosed because they have a mild form of Hypothyroidism. If your first TSH test was normal and you still have the symtoms associated with low thyroid levels you should try and test for TRH.

The hypothalamus is a gland in our brain that secretes Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone (TRH). When TRH is released, it stimulates the pituitary gland in the brain to release Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). TSH stimulates the thyroid itself to make thyroid hormones.The first and fastest test of thyroid function is the TSH test, which measures the circulating level of TSH in the bloodstream at one point in time. The TRH test is different. A baseline TSH test is done. Then you are given an injection of TRH, which stimulates the pituitary to release TSH. A second blood sample is drawn 30 minutes later, and the TSH level is retested.

After you know for sure you have a low TSH; In order to fix this problem- First you try to amend your diet with Salt that has Iodines. Remember when cooking with Iodine enriched salt, the Iodine will evaporate in cooking. Therefore add the salt later. Consume food that has Iodine; for example sea salt, radishes and kelp.

Do not eat the following foods raw: You have to cook them for few minutes. Apples, Peaches, Garlic, Broccoli, Turnips, Green leafy vegetables. If still your levels stay low, you should supplement with the correct dose of Thyroid Hormone. These pills are the best in the market. They are safe and they exactly emulate the missing Thyroid Hormone in the body.

The chart below will help you read your thyroid blood test.

ABC signs of a healthy person!

When my parents used to go to the Doctor; the doctor would look at them and take their heart beat from their pulse, and he knew what was wrong with them. I think the doctor mostly would deduce his findings from their physical presence. The following are some of the attributes of a healthy person. You can find the reasons and cures for all these items in this blog now or in the future.

BMI Calculator

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It measures the ratio of one's body weight to their height. It also tries to give an idea of the amount of body fat a person has. Two people can have the same BMI but different levels of body fat(because Muscle weighs more than fat). A high percentage of body fat increases the chances of heart disease, Type II diabetes, and cancers. *******************************************
