I’m starting to wonder if there actually is a conspiracy.
I know so many women who have so many of symptoms on the endless list of things that go wrong when your thyroid function is too low. And so few of them are on medication. Even fewer seem to be getting the information they need on all the other many co-factors that can go along with low thyroid like low iron, low adrenal function, selenium deficiency.
Why is the mainstream medical establishment ignoring so much of this?
Does anyone remember the 80’s, when PCOS was starting to be recognized as an actual syndrome? I don’t have it, so I may be remembering this incorrectly, but it seems to me as electronic communication, bulletin boards, and then the actual internet became real tools we could use, that women started using them to share information about issues they had that they couldn’t get help with. And bit by bit they pieced data together and had facts and figures they could start arguing with.
I’m a big fan of sharing information, you may have noticed. For thyroid information, the best one-stop-shop is Stop The Thyroid Madness.
And the more you look at the information they’ve amassed, the more you’ll wonder if it might not be a conspiracy after all. If it weren’t, why is it still such a problem?
