According to one thyroid expert, Richard Shames, MD: “Of many common illnesses that might eventually affect many of us, in my opinion, thyroid imbalance is probably the most common and most misdiagnosed of all. The number of prescriptions for thyroid medicines written each year exceeds that for almost any other category of illness. And yet, more than half of the 40 million+ people with a thyroid condition do not even know it, and are frequently diagnosed as having other health issues.” If you or someone you know has been dealing with unresolved health issues, going from doctor to doctor and not getting better, perhaps undiagnosed thyroid disease is the cause.
