In the so often rabbit hole I go down on the internet, where one thing leads to another and then I suddenly find myself in a place I never expected. That happened today.
There has been a lot of discussion about diabetes and thyroid issues that seem to go hand in hand. Those who have normal TSH levels on their lab reports may want to check again. I stumbled onto a doctor, David Brownstein, whose study of our tiny thyroid glad was inspired by his dad's heart attacks. The point is, that the thyroid glad controls every part of our bodies and when it's out of whack, we become unbalanced.
Having trouble with things like dry skin, inability to loose weight, infertility, dark circles under your eyes, allergies, cancer, hair loss and of course diabetes…the list goes on. You may want to have your thyroid checked in a more holistic way beyond a blood test. He says that possibly 60%-80% of people are unaware of their unhealthy thyroid.

I was just wondering if that might be why some of us have an easier time than others controlling our glucose numbers or other things we deal with in our battle with diabetes along with so many other symptoms we connect to diabetes that might actually be connected to our thyroid..
