Children and Thyroid

I went to the doctor and was told I have an enlarged thyroid. My blood tests came back normal, and...?

sore throat last week. I don't know of any other symptoms that I am having. I do get tired, but I have a 9 month old son who still wakes up twice a night, so I should be tired. I am currently trying to have another child. Could this be a problem?...

Why do parents feed their children fast food like McD's and Burger King more than 1x a week?

I know we're all busy. I'm a full-time single mom of two but we don't eat there. I cook, I make myself feed them right b/c I love them enough to get my *** up.

Is "consensus science" always correct?

"consensus opinion" from the medical community, including the American Dental Association, was that fluoride was a poison, and that laws should be enacted to remove as much of it as possible from our food and water supplies. So what changed? The latest report from the NRC (a research arm of the National Academy of Sciences) is now saying as little as 4 parts per million of the stuff can cause thyroid problems, osteoarthritis, and possibly even osteosarcoma in male children, if consumed over a long period of time. In other words, it looks like the pendulum is swinging back to the notion that fluoridation is NOT "safe and effective" after all. Other substances like leaded gasoline, ddt, and most recently Celebrex, have also fallen by the wayside. So why do the media still invoke "consensus science" so often?...

Help! Thyroid Problem?

it for a little over a week. I started having the "bad" side effects such as, fainting, throwing up, diahrea, dizziness, and head aches. I called my doctor and couldn't get through to him, but the nurse told me to cut the dosage in half and take the pill at night. I went one day without taking the pill and felt great. I took it last night and passed out and threw up this morning. I am just wondering if I am taking the right medicine or what? They said I have "elevated thyroid" and my level was 5.9 and normal is 2.1. They said it was Hypothyroidism. I researched it and as far as I could tell "hypo" is for low levels of hormones and "hyper" is for high levels of hormones. Can anyone help me!? Am I taking the right medicine or am I just allergic to it or what?! HELP!...
