These days everyone has been raving about the Ketogenic diet, and probably you’re giving this diet a try yourself to: Balance hormones, Lose weight, Build muscles, Increase energy, Seizures, Cancer.
You don’t have enough energy to get things done. You continue to gain weight despite eating clean and exercising regularly. Then there are the mood swings. One minute you’re irritable, the next minute you’re angry and all the sudden you feel anxious and depressed to the point you don’t enjoy life.
Did you know Hashimoto thyroiditis is a common condition affecting millions of people in America, which is often misdiagnosed for fibromyalgia and other conditions? Let’s start first by describing Hashimoto thyroiditis.
“As soon as I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I was immediately put on levothyroxine-a.k.a., a synthetic medication for low thyroid after diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I didn’t notice any difference in my symptoms after taking levothyroxine for months. I am still experiencing fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, cold intolerance, mood changes, and sleep issues.”
Thyroid dysfunctions such as Hashimoto, Graves and underactive thyroid are quite common. An estimated 30 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. In fact, thyroid dysfunction is near and dear to my heart especially since my underactive thyroid nearly caused me to drop out of medical school.
