What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Hypothyroid

A Special Report by Dr. Rodger Murphree
Your Thyroid Gland
The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck attached to the lower part
of the voice-box (or larynx) and to the upper part of the windpipe (or trachea).
The main function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods,
and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine
Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body, which can absorb iodine.
These cells combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4.
T3 and T4 are then released into the blood stream and are transported Dr. Murphree has been in throughout the body where they control metabolism (conversion of oxygen private practice since and calories to cellular energy).

a large integrated medical practice located on thecampus of Brookwood The normal thyroid gland produces about 80% T4 and about 20% T3, Hospital in Birmingham, however, T3 possesses about four times the hormone "strength" as T4. This is Alabama. Dr. Murphree is very important concept as you'll see later on in this report.

in the function of the thyroid gland.
It is the chief component of thyroid
hormones, and is essential for their production. Iodine is obtained from thewater we drink and the food we eat.
If there is little iodine available in our diet, insufficient thyroid hormone
is produced by the thyroid- and the person develops symptoms of low
thyroid function.

This is important please review the iodine self test below to see if you're
low in iodine.

therapy if the blood tests come back "normal".
Blood Tests for Thyroid Function are Often Inaccurate
Blood tests for thyroid function measure the amount of Thyroid Stimulating
Hormone (TSH), T4, and T3 in the bloodstream. But thyroid hormones don't
do anything within the bloodstream; the action takes place in the cells
themselves. There's no way to measure how much thyroid hormone is
actively in the cell.
We can only guess how much thyroid hormone is actually
in the cell.
Thyroid Blood Tests are Nothing More Than a Guess!
The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry has reported that, "Laboratory bloodtests for thyroid may be inaccurate for many who get tested forhypothyroid disorder." Blood tests are a poor and inadequate way to measure true thyroid hormonelevels.
More Ways Doctors Miss Low Thyroid Function
T4 needs to convert into T3 (four times stronger than T4) for optimal metabolicfunction (bodily energy).
Copyright 2010 Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Treating and Beating Hypothyroid
Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Unfortunately patients often have a problem converting T4 into active T3.
A build-up of Reverse T3 actually blocks the conversion of T4 into T3.
Reverse T3 is initiated by stress. The more stress the more Reverse T3
and more likely T4 isn't converting into the more active T3.

Your blood tests may show normal levels, but since T4 is not being convertedto T3 within the cells, fatigue and other symptoms associated with low thyroidbegin to appear. Individuals taking synthetic thyroid hormones likeSynthroid (T4 only) may continue to have the symptoms of low thyroid foryears, even in spite of normal blood tests.

complicate matters, millions of Americans go undiagnosed
because most doctors continue to use older, and now outdated,
Not only are blood tests inaccurate, but the parameters for determining whohas a thyroid disorder and who doesn't, have been changed. And stupiddoctors don't even know this! In the past those with a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) above 5.0 wereconsidered hypothyroid (low thyroid). However, many doctors wouldn'tprescribe thyroid hormone therapy until the TSH reached 10 or more.
In 2004 The American Association of Clinical Endocrinology (AACE)
changed the guidelines so that a TSH above 3.04 is now considered
positive for hypothyroid.

Some doctors believe that anyone who has a TSH above 2 and complains ofhypothyroid symptoms (depression, fatigue, brain fog, etc.) should be placedon thyroid hormone. And I would agree.
Copyright 2010 Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Treating and Beating Hypothyroid
Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
I routinely get patients who've been to their doctor, had a thyroid blood testwhich showed their TSH was above 3.04 only to have their doctor tell them"your blood tests look normal." The majority of labs are still using the old guidelines as well. So if you go toyour doctor and he or she takes your blood and it comes back with a TSH of4.0 they will tell you you're fine, no problem with your thyroid.
Traditional doctors are only too happy to treat your symptoms of fatigue,weight gain, low moods, and high blood pressure with potentially dangerousdrugs, Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, and blood pressure medications.
Of course if they'd only treat your low thyroid you wouldn't have all
these symptoms, hey you might actually get well and wouldn't need to
see a doctor….

You'd feel good again!
Low Body Temperature is a Major Sign of Hypothyroid
Individuals taking syntheticthyroid hormones like Dr. Barnes was the first to show that a low basal body temperature was Synthroid (T4 only) may associated with low thyroid. His first study was published in 1942 and continue to have the appeared in The Journal of the American Medical Association. This study symptoms of low thyroid tracked 1,000 college students and showed that monitoring body temperature for years, even in spite of for thyroid function was a valid if not superior approach to other thyroid tests.

Self Test for Low Thyroid
The test for low thyroid function according to Dr. Barnes protocol: First thing inthe morning while still in bed, shake down and place a mercury thermometer(digital thermometers are not as accurate) under your arm and leave there forten minutes.
Copyright 2010 Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Treating and Beating Hypothyroid
Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Record your temperature in a daily log. Women who are still having menstrualcycles should take their temperature after the second and third days of theperiod. Menopausal women can take their temperature on any day.
A reading at or below 97.8 strongly suggests hypothyroid. A reading
above 98.2 may indicate hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid).
If using a digital thermometer wait 2 hours after waking up and take
under the tongue (don't eat, drink or brush your teeth 10 minutes before
taking temperature).

Most doctors don't know or choose not to accept the well-documented studiesthat show a low body temperature is indicative of euthyroid hypothyroidism.
Why Is Your Thyroid Function Low?
Based on the past decade of the research, there are four primary reasons forthe high rate of hypothyroidism that we now have in this country.
Oh, but traditional doctors are only too happy to treatyour symptoms of fatigue, The major problem stems from a lack of iodine in the diet. Iodine is one of the weight gain, low moods, essential components of thyroid hormones. Without sufficient iodine, the

need to see a doctor…You'd feel good again! Women are naturally prone to iodine deficiencies. That's because the thyroid
gland in women is twice as large as in men -- so under normal circumstances,
women need more iodine. However, when women are under stress, the
need for iodine can double or triple.

Yet the foods we eat contain less and less dietary iodine. For example, back in1940, the typical American diet contained about 800 micrograms of iodine. By1995, that amount plunged to just 135 micrograms. That's an 83% decline.
Two thirds of the body's iodine is found in the thyroid gland.
Copyright 2010 Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Treating and Beating Hypothyroid
Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
I've found that the quickest and most affective way to get the iodine
your thyroid needs to operate at optimal levels is to take over the
counter iodine thyroid boosting supplements.

In my practice I use a product known as Thyroid Boost and if the patient is
really low or really suffering with low thyroid symptoms and wants to
jump-start their thyroid, I'll recommend they also take Thyroid Support.
These 2 products make up my Thyroid Jump Start package.
Some foods, called goitrogens, should be omitted for a while as theyhinder iodine utilization. These included kale, cabbage, peanuts, soy flour,Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, kohlrabi and turnips.

As with iodine, our soils have become deficient in the trace mineral selenium.
In the last few years, researchers have found that certain selenium-
containing enzymes (lodothyronine 5' deiodinase) are responsible for
the conversion of thyroid hormone T4 to T3.
The thyroid produces several
hormones, and must produce them in a somewhat balanced ratio. Without
selenium, this CONVERSION process is hindered.
This is another reason why some patients continue to feel bad even thoughthey are taking Synthroid or one of the other synthetic T4 drugs- T4 can'teffectively convert into the more active T3 without optimal amounts ofselenium. This process requires several B vitamins (vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5),coenzyme Q10, minerals, such as magnesium, and other substances.

for iodine can double or These compounds make their way into the body through respiration, ingestion of contaminated food, and skin contact. These chemicals can block thyroidhormone production and contribute to hypothyroidism. These compoundsinclude such environmental pollutants as PCBs, dioxins, and pesticides suchas lindane or dieldrin. Unfortunately, these pollutants can now be found inboth our food and drinking water supplies. This is one of the primary reasonswe are seeing problems like hypothyroidism showing up in our children.
Stress is part of everyone's life every day. With a person affected byhypothyroidism, stress can aggravate the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Whena person is undergoing stressful events – even "everyday" stress – the bodyproduces a chemical called cortisol.
Cortisol is one of two main hormones produced by the adrenal glands

The symptoms of low thyroid (hypothyroidism) and low adrenal (adrenal
fatigue) are in many ways mirror images of each other.

Low adrenal function is characterized by feeling weak, lacking desire for sex,having dark circles under the eyes, experiencing joint or muscle aches/pains,being affected by low blood sugar, have select food cravings or cravings forsalt, experiencing poor sleep, dry skin, discoloration and lines in fingernailpigment, showing marked difficulty in recovering from common colds ortemporal situations like jet lag, having lowered immunity to illness, affected bydepression and showing signs of premature aging.
Clues to low adrenal functioning include a low blood pressure (less than120/80), allergies, asthma, breathing difficulties, skin problems (such as acne, Some foods, called eczema, psoriasis, lupus, dry flaky skin), joint or muscle pains, as in arthritis, goitrogens, should be and emotional problems, such as mood swings, weeping, fears and phobias. omitted for a while as theyhinder iodine utilization.

Self-Testing Methods for Adrenal Fatigue
Ragland's sign is an abnormal drop in systolic blood pressure (the topnumber) when a person arises from a lying to a standing position. Thereshould be a rise of 8–10 mm. in the systolic (top) number. A drop or failure torise indicates adrenal fatigue.
Copyright 2010 Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Treating and Beating Hypothyroid
Dr. Rodger Murphree, DC
Example: Someone takes your blood pressure while you're lying on yourback. The systolic number is 120 and the diastolic number is 60 (120 over60). Then take your blood pressure again after immediately standing up.
The systolic number (120) should go up 10 points (from 120 to 130). If itdoesn't increase 10 points, this indicates adrenal fatigue.
Pupil Dilation Test
Another way to test for adrenal dysfunction is the pupil dilation exam. Toperform this on yourself, you'll need a flashlight and a mirror. Face the mirror,and shine the light in one eye. If after 30 seconds the pupil (black center)starts to dilate (enlarge), adrenal deficiency should be suspected.
Why does this happen? During adrenal insufficiency, there is a deficiency ofsodium and an abundance of potassium, and this imbalance causes aninhibition of the sphincter muscles of the eye. These muscles normally initiatepupil constriction in the presence of bright light. However, in adrenal fatigue,the pupils actually dilate when exposed to light.
