It is estimated that more than a quarter of the population has thyroid disease. More than 70 million prescriptions for Synthroid are given each year (Prevention). Despite these high numbers, doctors have (or share) very little information about the disease. What is more, millions of women every year are told they are fine when they go to the doctor asking for help with common thyroid symptoms. These may include fatigue, brain fog, weigh gain/loss, or anxiety. Every woman is different.

The good news is that there are thyroid specialists who have made it their mission to educate as many as possible and to arm us with the tools we need to get diagnosed and get better. Many of these experts have agreed to join Dr. Isabella Wentz in creating a free documentary being aired this week.  You can sign up and watch it here (affiliate link).

    I am am glad to see you are nudging people with this.
