A significant percentage of hypothyroid patients treated with synthetic thyroid hormone medications report dissatisfaction with their treatment because of the persistence of their symptoms. Although many patients do respond well to treatment with synthetic conventional medicine, though there are known side-effects of the same like fatigue, hair loss, brain fog, decreased memory, attention deficit disorder, constipation, and depression still persist in a significant percentage of patients.
What is the problem?
The major problem is that the majority of doctors have been taught to use TSH levels exclusively in the diagnosis of hypothyroidism and in the management of thyroid medication dosage. They only look at laboratory results and do not pay attention to a patient’s symptoms. This often results in physicians dismissing many symptomatic patients because their TSH levels are “normal”.
The reality is that patients having TSH levels in the “normal” range suffer from the same symptoms that are seen in patients who have high TSH levels. The inescapable conclusion is that TSH levels should not be the only criteria used for the diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism. In addition, the modest rate of symptomatic improvement with synthetic T4 treatment also suggests that another form for thyroid medication may be more effective in providing symptomatic relief. Perhaps a return to a more natural treatment would help the way of diagnosing and treating hypothyroidism.
Thyroid diseases are treated generally through HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) by a conventional school of medicine. At least 1% of people taking conventional medicine have reported side-effects of the same. Following are the known side-effects of HRT.
Getting yourself treated with homeopathic medicine would be very helpful as homeopathic medicines are free from side-effects.
