Hi Just wanted to share this information here because I thought it was interesting and may be helpful.
A friend of mine who is dealing with major thyroid issues had a doctor recommend a book called Overcoming Thyroid Disorders by David Brownstein. After reading a section of it, my friend immediately sent me a text message telling me something exciting she read and thought it would help me. She was saying that autoimmune disorders can tie into thyroid issues. The author was specifically talking about a patient with APS as well as antibody levels in her blood indicating lupus. The patient had normal tsh levels but had lab tests that showed she was having trouble converting a thyroid hormone called T4 into another thyroid hormone called T3, which is an essential process necessary for metabolism in the cells. He began to treat her with something called Armor Thyroid which is a natural desiccated thyroid hormone derived from pigs. The patient noticed immediate improvements with her symptoms and other autoimmune issues. My friend was saying that in other words, her thyroid was the root of the problem and by treating the thyroid her other problems cleared up.
My friend is seeing a holistic gynecologist about 2 hrs away from me who does extensive hormone lab tests using saliva. After I go to the APS specialist in NYC, I'm going to try and get an appointment with this other doctor to check my thyroid levels just to see if that's off too. I was really excited about all of this after talking to my friend.
Not sure if any of you heard of this before but I thought I'd share it
Have a blessed day,
