Dr. Hossein Gharib is one of the worlds leading endocrinologists

He says: "The prevalence of undiagnosed thyroid problems is shockingly high"

Dr. Hossein Gharib was President of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists in 2002, is a fellow of the American College of Endocrinology and is frequently named on the 'Best Doctors in America' list, most recently this year, 2011.

In other words, don't expect your local doctor to be able to accurately diagnose hypothyroidism based on the TSH test, it's a bit like monitoring the alcohol levels in a person by checking if they are still standing or not. Still standing ? Ok, no problem, move along now.

Better still, ask yourself whether you have symptoms of hypothyroidism. Common symptoms of an underactive thyroid include fatigue, weakness, a mild or severe intolerance to the cold, difficulty losing weight, gain weight easily, lifeless hair, brittle nails, dry skin, muscle cramps at night, constipation, mental sluggishness, cold body temperature in the morning, thinned eyebrows (esp. with females), cold hands or feet, low blood pressure, elevated cholesterol. Answering 'yes' to just 2 or 3 of the above could very well signal a degree of hypothyroidism.

I don't want to sound sarcastic but 100 % of people can answer 'yes' to 2-3 of your problems at any time ;)

Well, that's the point I am trying to make, nearly everyone is hypothyroid

That's why it is so refreshing to hear one of the worlds leading endocrinologists saying "The prevalence of undiagnosed thyroid problems is shockingly high"

My question to him is how shockingly high ? Totally shockingly high ?

On September 19th last month I started eating Kombu seaweed, initially just 5 grams per day for a few days and then I increased the amount. For the last 7 days I have been eating 20 grams kombu seaweed everyday and I feel amazing, really amazing. So amazing that I can answer 'no' to all the questions. And in terms of iodine intake from the kombu during these 16 days, I have had the equivalent of nearly 5 years worth of the Recommended Dietary Intake as indicated by FDA.

And what do you think might be causing the hypothyroidism? I have a suggestion: invasive fungal infection.

Be carefull with iodine dosage Pierre. As hypothyroidism is a fact, so is hyperthyroidism. Just saying everything must be in balance...

Matt! There is a relation to candida and hypothyroidism!

http://thyroid.about.com/od/newscontrov ... 52401a.htm

We know that everyone has some candida in their gut. Could that be why 100% of people could have said yes to pierres questions? Candida thrives on weakened immune systems. It also thrives on SUGAR. Many posts here have questioned the effects of sugar on lipomas.
