Hypothyroidism - Type 1 and Type 2
« on: October 19, 2007, 08:15:35 AM »
Diabetes, insulin resistance, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, hyperthyroid, low thyroid - there are so many hormone/endocrine disorders.  Did you know there was such a thing as Type 2 Hypothyroidism?  It is kind of equivalent to insulin resistance in that the thyroid produces sufficient quantities of hormone, but it is not utilized properly by the body.  So, blood tests may be normal, but the person is symptomatic of low thyroid.  Can you guess that is is said to be hugely underdiagnosed, and therefore undertreated?

I read about it this morning in a blog by a family helping their daughter recover from a drowning accident.  As the Lord opens doors and lights their path they have been learning about alternative medicine and nutrition.  They are beginning to see more and more remarkable progress as they implement what they are learning. 

The latest  addition to their arsenal is Amour dessicated thyroid which is being used to treat their daughter's Type 2 Hypothyroidism.  You can read about it here: www.prayforabby.blogspot.com.  Incredibly inspiring, and humbling.

The mom recommends the book by Mark Starr, "Type 2 Hypothyroidism."  The website is www.type2hypothyroidism.com.

Another very helpful site is www.stopthethyroidmadness.com.  There is so much practical advice here, but one of the best tips is how to find a doctor, and when to change doctors.  You will also find an exhaustive list of symptoms and recommended labwork.

Thank you for all this great information. The websites you have advised are very good.

The story of Abby is very humbling and Hopeful...she is doing great still.

If anybody else is still reaing this post, hopefully this site will also help

I would also recommend a site that is based on natural treatment at http://naturaltreatmentforyou.com/natural-treatment-for-hypothyroidism/

Thyroid problems should be treated conventionally as well as naturally

Thank you again
