Dr. Pam Popper on: Hypothyroidism; Iodine, Thyroid Function & Thyroid Disease

Dr. Pam Popper's answer to query: "Has the incidence of hypothyroidism increased or is it that we're diagnosing more cases of it because we've changed the diagnostic criteria?"

(Hypothyroidism topic begins at minute 6.)

Dr Pam Popper: Alzheimer's Disease; Hypothyroidism:

.

Video description reads:

Published on Oct 29, 2013

Alzheimer's Disease is a new condition -- there were no cases reported before 1907. How did dementia become an epidemic in such a short period of time?

And, we may be over-diagnosing hypothyroidism, and medicating people who should not be medicated. More disease mongering, which benefits drug companies but not patients.

_______

Stumbled on this video (while looking for something else) & found Dr. Popper's take on hypothyroidism (as well as Alzheimer's) very interesting. 🤔

Merely sharing it here for hypothyroid-ers, who may be interested in viewing hypothyroid topic in broad context, perhaps through slightly different prism. 👓 (Merely 'food for thought'. 🤔 ) 🙏

  • After watching the 'Alzheimer's/ Hypothyroidism' video, I poked around looking for other Dr. Popper videos on thyroid & found this equally interesting one: Iodine, Thyroid Function and Thyroid Disease

    (Topics begin at minute 1:38.)

    .

    Video description reads:

    Published on Dec 13, 2016

    Another case in which more is NOT better. Too much iodine can cause thyroid disease, and can make people who already have thyroid disease considerably worse.

  • I'm merely sharing this with fellow Thyroid-ers/ Autoimmuners who may also be interested.

    Haven't had a chance to go through all PP's thyroid-related videos, but so far, from what I've viewed, what she's sharing piques my interest. 🤔

    If you're familiar with Dr. Popper's work (or not) & would like to share your thoughts, I'm very interested to hear from you.

    Thank you kindly for taking time to read & view videos & sharing whatever perspectives your comfortable sharing. Much appreciated. 🙏

    Wishing you wellness. 🙏 🌺 🍀 🌞

    Kind regards, ☺️

    Searching YouTube for "Dr Pam Popper Thyroid" comes up with this list of videos -- for anyone wishing to explore/ research further: m.youtube.com/results?q=Dr%...

  • Hello Kai

    For me, Dr Popper adds nothing new. What I am concerned about is her absolute certainty. Hypo can be resolved by changes in diet and lifestyle :P there is no harm in waiting another three to six months before beginning treatment :P

    Here Dr Popper - have my body for three to six months whilst I wait for you to take your finger out of your @rse and treat me. I'll just shuffle into the corner crying for half a year and take longer to feel better when you deign to treat me

    No no no no no :X

  • Much, much appreciated, Rapunzel. 🙏

    Thank you kindly for taking time to view & respond. 👍

    If you don't mind my asking, what was the 1st treatment that turned things round for you?

    And, approximately how long did it take before you began improving?

    (If this is too personal, no need to answer. I fully understand.)

    Thank you again. 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞

    Oh, got a kick out of your picture & moniker 'Rapunzel'. 😆

    From childhood remember "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let your hair down . . ." 😂

  • "we may be over-diagnosing hypothyroidism"

    This lady is American, isn't she. Well, I don't know if hypothyroidism is being over-diagnosed in the US, but I very much doubt it is in Europe (and I'm a bit old-fashioned, so I include the UK in Europe). It's far too difficult to get a diagnosis of hypo as it is, without her putting ideas in doctors heads! lol

    Thank you for posting, but I don't really get the impression she knows too much about it.

  • Many many thanks, greygoose. 🙏

    Always appreciate your wisdom/ insight -- putting things 'in context'.

    Good question! 👍 Perhaps she's speaking from a state-side-centric perspective? 🤔

  • I'm sure she is! :)

  • I cannot believe that tosh. She should get some patients elucidate their symptoms. Its just the usual Disinfo.

  • Thank you for taking time to view videos & share your opinion, Dulaigh. Much appreciated. 🙏
