Hi Ruth,Interesting link.Could you explain better your long lasting, undiagnosed hypothyroid condition?Was iodine deficiency the real cause? ikoD
Sorry to be so long getting back. I was alittle put off using this site after some rather accusatory comments.My story really is too long to explain on a forum.I have professional backing behind me but as yet have had no "scientific" tests. I got rather fed up with tests and now seem to now be getting well without them!Goes back to my teens and I have had very clear hypothyroid symptoms since then.Patient UK "subclinical hypothyroidism" explans this fully and how this is often missed.My symptoms include electrosensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivies among many other.I have just become a volunteer for Electrosensitivity UK who are a charity to raise awareness and recogniton for this real condition. In Sweden a quarter of a million people are diagnosed with this and claiming diability. Safe hospital wings have been built and a whole village for sufferers to recouperate. Canada too now recognise this.It has been a very long and lonely journey and in the end, the need to be believed becomes a almost as bad s the illness itself. To not be believed especially by people you love is very hard indeed.My youngest sister (34) has Down's Syndrome and only recently diagnosed autism and I believe that this is linked in some way.My mother has also had hypothyroid symptoms and this is why, with everything else and what I have learned, I believe iodine deficiency has at least had an input on mine and my familys health.I do not claim to be a scientist but since iodine is thought to be needed to detox heavy metals it would all seem logical and make sense.Lots of info on iodine deficiency including breast and prostate cancer. Just google it!Ruth.
