Top 7 Thyroid Blogs You Need to Read

Best Thyroid Blogs

In our world of information overflow it can be difficult to sift through everything to find what is truly valuable. This is even more so the case when it comes to finding information on thyroid health and wellness. There are a multitude of resources available just a few keystrokes away. We have perused a great deal of content regarding thyroid health and found these 7 blogs to be exceptional sources for thyroid education and information.

Hypothyroid Mom

Hypothyroid Mom is an excellent location to read about a variety of thyroid related topics presented in an easily understandable and personal format. The author, Dana Trentini, is tuned in to matters of thyroid health because she herself has hypothyroidism. Her own experiences have instilled a passion within her to raise thyroid awareness. She does this by presenting articles that are well cited, illustrated, and connected to her personal experience as a patient. Her blog has been active since 2012 and continues to produce informative content on and about the thyroid. If you desire a more personal perspective on thyroid health and how it impacts one’s life, Hypothyroid Mom is a great place to start reading.

Very Well with Mary Shomon

Mary Shomon is a widely respected and nationally-known patient activist that has a long history of raising thyroid awareness through her writings. Verywell is a hub that contains useful information on numerous conditions but is particularly good at relaying thyroid-related knowledge to the masses. From thyroid condition overviews, to interviews with specialists, to easily readable synopses and opinion pieces on new research, Verywell provides them all. Everything is presented in a cleanly designed and professionally written format that makes navigating the site and consuming its information easy. Additionally, a helpful and thriving thyroid community has been constructed around her work and is accessible through the site.

Thyroid Nation

If you are looking for a greater breadth of thyroid and autoimmune coverage, Thyroid Nation may be the site for you. This community is an independent aggregate that presents various forms of media including, editorials, videos, and lifestyle articles all promoting greater health. The community of Thyroid Nation was originally formed from a widespread desire to connect those whose lives have been impacted by thyroid difficulties. Above all, this community is focused on supporting its readers with positivity in the form of uplifting stories and testimonies that offer information gleaned from personal experience. Furthermore, if you feel like your story and experience may help others they welcome new contributors. Thyroid Nation is a great source of motivation and good-vibes that can help you on your journey to achieve better thyroid health.

Stop The Thyroid Madness

Another community centered on “patient experiences and wisdom” is Stop the Thyroid Madness. This site equips thyroid patients with the tools they need to approach their doctors and get the treatment they need. STTM (Stop The Thyroid Madness) is a melting pot of patient experiences and suggestions that has lead readers to improved treatment and interactions with their doctors. The philosophy of STTM is that better-informed patients have a direct impact on the quality of their care. As content is primarily derived from patient experiences, there are many practical topics such as understanding lab work, differences between medication (naturally desiccated thyroid, synthetic, etc.), contributing conditions, testing methods and more.

Thyroid Pharmacist

Begun by Dr. Izabella Wentz, Pharm.D., FASCP, Thyroid Pharmacist is a site devoted to impactful lifestyle changes to aid those with thyroid conditions. As a Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis patient, Dr. Wentz has done a great deal of research in pursuit of optimizing thyroid conditions. Rather than focusing solely on pharmaceutical treatments and other drugs, Thyroid Pharmacist focuses primarily on lifestyle interventions and nutrition. Individual implementation of such information can aid in resolving contributing factors of autoimmune disease such as nutrient depletions, adrenal dysfunction, chronic infections, and others. This welcoming website offers suggestions for numerous supplements, beneficial foods, and ways to avoid harmful additives and ingredients.

The Invisible Hypothyroidism

The main concern of The Invisible Hypothyroidism is the unique nature of each person’s thyroid condition and how to get the best treatment for it. Many articles and updates found on this website come from a deeply personal perspective that may resonate with individuals who are dealing with similar symptoms and experiences. Other articles present useful information that is written from a unique and easily approachable perspective. There are also introductory links and helpful book reviews that may help guide newly diagnosed and longstanding thyroid patients alike. If you are looking for friendly, down-to-earth, commentary and information on thyroid conditions, The Invisible Hypothyroidism is the place to go.

Hashimoto’s Awareness

An important factor that contributes to thyroid disease is autoimmune disorders. The goal of Hashimoto’s Awareness is just what one would expect it to be, increase awareness of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. There are several particularly beneficial aspects of Hashimoto’s Awareness. This includes regularly scheduled Q&A’s, thorough explanations of the multiple elements of Hashimoto’s, and wellness tips specifically tailored for those with Hashimoto’s. Other events such as community forums with experts in the field provide users with invaluable knowledge and the opportunity to easily engage with the medical community. Regularly visiting Hashimoto’s Awareness is an excellent way to stay up to date on current research and prospective treatment methods.

Get Engaged, Get Educated

See your doctor if you’re feeling tired for no reason or have any of the other signs or symptoms of hypothyroidism, such as dry skin, a pale, puffy face, constipation or a hoarse voice.

You’ll also need to see your doctor for periodic testing of your thyroid function if you’ve had previous thyroid surgery; treatment with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications; or radiation therapy to your head, neck or upper chest. However, it may take years or even decades before any of these therapies or procedures result in hypothyroidism.

If you have high blood cholesterol, talk to your doctor about whether hypothyroidism may be a cause. And if you’re receiving hormone therapy for hypothyroidism, schedule follow-up visits as often as your doctor recommends. Initially, it’s important to make sure you’re receiving the correct dose of medicine. And over time, the dose you need may change.

Always use doctor prescribed meds if buying online stores like mygenericpharmacy or any other stores.

The Most Common Thyroid Problems
Thyroid problems come in all shapes and sizes. These are the four most common thyroid issues:
Hypothyroidism, which is under-functioning of the thyroid gland (energy and metabolism are low)
Hyperthyroidism, which is over-functioning of the thyroid gland (metabolism is running on overdrive!)
And autoimmune forms of under- and over- active thyroid (Hashimoto’s and Graves disease, respectively) or due to other causes ranging from nutritional deficiencies to infection and inflammation (thyroiditis).
Hypothyroidism is the most prevalent form of thyroid disease, and thus is by far the most commonly diagnosed thyroid condition. Hashimoto’s disease accounts for 90% of all hypothyroidism in the US.(mygenericpharmacy)

Hello and thank you.

I have known Stop The Thyroid Madness since 2005, and I do know that Stop The Thyroid Madness is unconditional credible. Perhaps even one of the very few most credible and supportive sites available, but I’m not sure about some of the others recommended ones.

There is a great responsibility attached to all recommendations that we make, but if our recomendation fails by directing the sick human beings into sites that may prove to be partially untrustworthy, this untrustworthiness will then turn back on us. Is Nahypothyroidism.org really sure that every recommendation in this message are worth recommending?

I need answers and hope. Two out of my four children were born premature. The two premiees have a lot of symptoms of bipolar without the mania. They have not been diagnosed. There is no history of bipolar on my or husbands family. Both children started acting up at age 17. Both premiees have completely white toenails (fungus). Years ago, daughter had a blood virus that was initially checked for leckumea but It was a virus and cleared up. This same daughter recently had a high level of the lactating hormone (if this makes sense because she would not allow me to go to doctor appointment with her) she is now 25. The 21 year old son, had tremors when he was a month old. I took him to a neorologist who witnessed the twitching and ordered an EEG which they said was difficult to interpretate because he was moving. They said to watch him and call is seizures continue.
Two of my kids are wonderful. The two premiees are like living with the devil. My husband and I were good parents and the anger and difficulties these two have are bafflingly. I want to order a thyroid test and want to make sure I order the correct test.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I am on both Armour Thyroid and Levothyroxyn and my blood work is coming back a little low but not low enough where the Dr will increase meds. I am gaining weight like crazy and I am so tired all the time. Any recommendations for a natural supplement to add to my daily regimen? I know something still is not right!

Hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs when your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones.
There are many glands in the body, but the thyroid gland is the small, butterfly-shaped organ at the base of your neck that makes hormones that regulate your metabolism — which affects how the body uses energy — and other processes. While your body goes through hormonal changes every day (hello, mood swings!), big dips — like those that occur during hypothyroidism — can signal danger, as a lack of thyroid hormone production causes the body’s functions to slow down. You can also refer to this article which states all the necessary details about hypothyroidism https://www.everydayhealth.com/hypothyroidism/guide/

Hypothyroidism occurs when levels of the two thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), are too low. Although changing your diet alone isn’t enough to restore normal thyroid hormone levels, avoiding some foods and eating more of others can improve your body’s absorption of these hormones.

Some forms of hypothyroidism are caused by a lack of sufficient iodine. In such cases, using iodized salt or iodine-enriched foods can be beneficial. But eating too much iodine can have the opposite effect and suppress thyroid gland activity. Check with your doctor before taking supplements.

Taking iron or calcium supplements can also change the effectiveness of many thyroid medications.

Certain vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables that are rich in fiber, like broccoli, cabbage, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts, may inhibit thyroid medication absorption. Reducing the amounts of such produce in the morning right after taking your medication may help.

I have also searched a lot foe meds online because my wife also suffering from hypothyroid and know about mygenericpharmcy online medicine store. There are good and cheap meds are available on this store.

Standard treatment for hypothyroidism involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine (Levothroid, Synthroid, others). This oral medication restores adequate hormone levels, reversing the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism.

One to two weeks after starting treatment, you’ll notice that you’re feeling less fatigued. The medication also gradually lowers cholesterol levels elevated by the disease and may reverse any weight gain. Treatment with levothyroxine is usually lifelong, but because the dosage you need may change, your doctor is likely to check your TSH level every year.

Some patients will notice a slight reduction in symptoms within 1 to 2 weeks, but the full metabolic response to thyroid hormone therapy is often delayed for a month or two before the patient feels completely normal. It is important that the correct amount of thyroid hormone is used. Not enough and the patient may have continued fatigue or some of the other symptoms of hypothyroidism. Too high a dose could cause symptoms of nervousness, palpitations or insomnia typical of hyperthyroidism. Some recent studies have suggested that too much thyroid hormone may cause increased calcium loss from bone increasing the patient’s risk for osteoporosis. For patients with heart conditions or diseases, an optimal thyroid dose is particularly important. Even a slight excess may increase the patient’s risk for heart attack or worsen angina. Some physicians feel that more frequent dose checks and blood hormone levels are appropriate in these patients.

Can we buy thyroid meds online, i mean there are lots of online pharmacy stores on which meds are very cheap. Amazon, healthkart or mygenericpharmacy etc are the store on which i have founds good meds.

Your doctor’s choice of treatment will depend on your symptoms and the cause of your hyperthyroidism. Treatments include:

Medicine.
Antithyroid medicines block your thyroid from making new thyroid hormone. These drugs do not cause lasting damage to the thyroid.
Beta-blockers block the effects of thyroid hormone on your body. These medicines can be helpful in slowing your heart rate and treating other symptoms until one of the other forms of treatment can take effect. Beta-blockers do not reduce the amount of thyroid hormones that are made.
Radioiodine. This treatment kills the thyroid cells that make thyroid hormones. Often, this causes permanent hypothyroidism.

We can get every thyroid meds which is prescribed by our doctor at any online store like 1mg, mygenericpharmacy, amazon etc.

First things first, you must consider food to be your medicine and get off all processed junk food, sugar (which sends you on a hormonal rollercoaster ride) and gluten. The Daily Living Eating Plan is a great place to start. In addition, l-glutamine is a key amino acid that reduces cravings for high-glycemic carbohydrates and helps kick the sugar habit. If you have already done that and are looking to go deeper, here are some tips to heal the thyroid.

I have also visited suggested websites for meds online like amazon and mygenericpharmacy.com and really find some good meds. there.

How is my thyroid gland controlled?
There has to be some sort of mechanism that regulates very carefully the amount of T4 and T3 secreted by your thyroid gland so that the right – the normal – amounts are manufactured and delivered into the blood stream. The mechanism is very similar to that which regulates the central heating in a house where there is a thermostat in, say, the living room, which is set to a particular temperature and which activates the gas- or oil-fired furnace, or boiler that heats the hot water. In the case of the thyroid the ‘thermostat’ consists of a little gland, called the pituitary gland that lies underneath your brain in your skull. The pituitary senses the level of thyroid hormones in your blood stream, just as the thermostat in your living room senses the temperature. Under normal circumstances, if the level drops just a little below normal, the pituitary reacts by secreting a hormone called the thyroid stimulating hormone, also known as TSH, and this hormone activates the thyroid gland to put out more T4 and T3.

Conversely, when the thyroid hormone levels rise above normal the ‘thermostat’ senses this and the pituitary stops secreting TSH so that the thyroid gland stops working so hard and the secretion of T4 and T3 is reduced.

The medical community continues to debate this issue. Some endocrinologists worry that a narrow interpretation of normal TSH level (for instance a TSH of less than 4) will result in perfectly healthy patients being treated for a disorder they don’t truly have. Others think that leaving the broader range of normal TSH may result in more people living without a proper diagnosis or treatment for hypothyroidism.

It is always recommended to buy prescribed meds from online or any drug store and there are many online stores on which we can buy meds for Thyroid, mygenericpharmacy is one of them which i have searched.

Levothyroxine may lower your cholesterol levels and help you return to a normal weight. The medicine causes very few side effects and is relatively inexpensive, The generic form of the drug is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans. (18)

Treatment with levothyroxine is usually continued for the rest of your life, but your doctor may adjust your dose over time.

It is always recommended to buy prescribed meds from online or any drug stores. Online stores like mygenericpharmacy, amazon, healthkart also want priscribtion to buy meds from their.

Hello, I am reaching out to you because I’m unable to find much information on the situation I’m finding myself in with regards to hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed by my OB/GYN due to high TSH discovered in a recent blood test. She’s prescribed Synthroid and suggested that I follow up with my PCP. This was quite a shock for me. I’m 49 year old woman and asymptomatic – this diagnosis came out of the blue. Additional bloodwork showed that my Free T4 level is normal. Reading up on this and trying to learn as much as I can, it seems the next step may be for my doctor to order a test to determine my T3 level, in order to confirm or rule out a conversion issue. Here is the twist to all of this, which taken alone is not so unusual but makes me question the cause of my diagnosis: my 55 year old husband has also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism due to high TSH. He, too, has normal range Free T4. We are both in relatively good health, and have never had any thyroid / endocrine issues until now. Neither of us has a family history of this, either, that we are aware. What could be going on here? Could there be an environmental cause or possibly pure coincidence, which seems unlikely at best?

The problem of diseases being spread by dirty hands is not just that antibacterial soaps aren’t doing as good a job as they promise it’s that the public is not washing their hands adequately enough, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Nowadays there aretoo many online stores but all are not reliable, they are selling cheap meds only but result is not concern for them, i am only visiting reputed online store like mygenericpharmacy.

The most popular treatment is radioactive iodine. This therapy often results in hypothyroidism, requiring the use of levothyroxine (synthetic replacement hormone) in order to restore normality.

Thyroid diseases are life-long conditions. With careful management, people with thyroid disease can live healthy, normal lives.
I am always buying medicated products from mygenericpharmacy and amazon and i most relying on them.
