Avoiding Pitfalls in Thyroid Diagnosis and Treatment
Thyroid treatment can be fraught with obstacles that can interfere with your ability to live well. Take a look at many of these pitfalls.

Undertreatment Thyroid Diagnosis and Treatment Pitfalls
When you're hypothyroid and treated with thyroid medication, one of the objectives is to give you the right dosage of medication so that you're symptoms are relieved, without being overmedicated. One of the key pitfalls in treatment, however, is that some doctors believe that getting patients to the high-normal level of the TSH reference range is all they need to do for treatment.

Thyroid Diagnosis/Treatment Pitfalls: You're Overmedicated
The most common risk associated with thyroid hormone replacement drugs is development of hyperthyroid symptoms due to taking too much thyroid medication. If you're overmedicated, you may experience insomnia, weight loss, anxiety, fatigue, weight loss, and other signs and symptoms of an overactive thyroid.

Thyroid Diagnosis/Treatment Pitfalls: You're Forgetting or Refusing To Take Your Medicine
If you have a thyroid condition and your doctor has prescribed medication, taking that medication is essential. Some patients are afraid of prescription drugs, think that they are more harmful than helpful, or don't believe they will help -- and even after being diagnosed, don't take their medication. In some cases, patients have a hard time remembering to take thyroid pills each day. Either way, if you aren't taking your thyroid medications, this is a pitfall in your treatment.

Thyroid Diagnosis/Treatment Pitfalls: You Need a New Doctor
One of the most important factors in successful diagnosis and management of a chronic condition like thyroid disease is having the right doctor for you. A good doctor will be your partner in care, and ideally, will fit with your health care needs. When it comes to dealing with thyroid disease, the wrong doctor can be a major pitfall in your diagnosis and treatment process. What signs should be a warning that your current doctor or practitioner may not be the right one for you?

Thyroid Diagnosis/Treatment Pitfalls: You Feel Like Giving Up
Experts claim that not only are thyroid problems easy to diagnose, but treating hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism -- conditions where the thyroid gland is underactive or overactive -- is also easy to treat. The truth is that the treatment can be fraught with pitfalls, obstacles that can interfere with your ability to live well. Take a look at many of these thyroid treatment pitfalls, including calcium, iron, weight gain, udertreatment, hair loss, and more.
