Thyroid Info Week #1, Video #1

I've decided to start a little something here on this blog. I am going to put a video that relates to thyroid disease once or twice a week. The first one is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Thyroid disease. There is a difference. This is how people often go misdiagnosed. A lot of what they discuss in this video is what I have been going through for years, and it did take me a long time to get diagnosed and even longer to be treated properly.

Remember, if you feel any of these symptoms mentioned, ask your doctor for a thyroid test. Millions of people suffer from thyroid disease everyday and don't know it. Be informed.

I have the Under-active Thyroid, and it is such a bind as I get tired fairly easily. It annoys me that I cant do as much as I used to, mind you I am not as young as I was either which does not help lol.

It might be important to your readers to know that there are FDA-approved home testing kits to measure TSH levels. These might be excellent for beginning screenings for the uninsured, underinsured or for those that don't have access to a physician. Although, users are encouraged to share the results with their physician.
