9780722539422: Why Am I So Tired? Is Your Thyroid Making You Ill?

An essential guide to how an underactive thyroid could be the root of your health problems.

Why am I so Tired? questions the problems associated with an underactive thyroid. Mild hypothyroidism affects about 7 – 10 % of the population, but is frequently misdiagnosed because the symptoms are similar to that of ME, chronic fatigue, depression, and menopausal symptoms.
Symptoms can include:
exhaustion * weight gain * mental fogginess * low sex drive * thinning hair * dry skin * poor circulation * aching joints

Why am I so Tired? offers an essential guide to discovering whether an underactive thyroid is at the root of your health problems with an easy to follow questionnaire, case studies and an excellent question and answer format. The book includes:
· what the thyroid is and how it functions
· what happens when it is underactive
· what tests your should ask your doctor for
· simple self-diagnosis – temperature testing
· where to go for help
· other illnesses which might be confused for hypothyroidism or vice versa
· how nutrition and naturopathic remedies help

From the Back Cover:

AT LEAST 10% OF THE POPULATION SUFFER FROM SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY AN UNDERACTIVE THYROID (MILD HYPOTHYROIDISM). COULD YOU BE ONE OF THEM?

Most common in women over 40 – although many men do develop thyroid problems – it can cause symptoms which include weight gain, muscle pain, fatigue and hair loss.

Many people with an underactive thyroid gland comment that they 'wake up some time after their eyes are open'. The thyroid is your metabolic clock and when the gland is inefficient, your metabolism does not usually recover from sleep until around midday.

Difficult to diagnose with the standard blood tests, sufferers are all too often told by their doctors that their problem is 'nerves' or 'depression'. Martin Budd explains:
· How to tell if mild hypothyroidism is your problem
· how the symptom picture will vary from person to person
· taking your temperature – a valuable self-diagnostic test
· thyroid hormone treatments and animal thyroid extract
· your diet and helpful nutritional supplements

Martin Budd N.D., D.O. is an experienced Naturopathic Consultant who specialises in blood sugar disorders and thyroid conditions.
