Internet TV Show Health Inn Interviews Dana Trentini About The Hypothyroid Epidemic
Monday June 6, 2013 Health Inn learns about health effects of hypothyroidism on lives of millions of people when speaking with Dana Trentini, the self proclaimed "Thyroid Lady". How can we find out if we are one of the 300 million with this disease?
All related thyroid questions will be addressed. According to the Thyroid Federation International, there are up to 300 million people worldwide with thyroid dysfunction, yet over half are unaware of their condition. Dana's wants to inform the public and health care professionals about the warning signs of this disease, and to ask for and provide routine thyroid exams, which will improve the lives of millions.
Participate In The Show With Your Questions and Comments | Hypothyroidism is defined as abnormally low activity of the thyroid gland, which may result in many devastating symptoms for adults, developing fetuses and children. Let's dig deeper to learn more. Do you have questions like: Is it necessary to take synthetic replacement drugs when you have this condition? Will I be able to carry a pregnancy to term? What causes hypothyroidism?
Who Is Most Affected? Women, especially those older than age 60, are more likely to have hypothyroidism, which upsets the normal balance of chemical reactions in the body. Over time, untreated hypothyroidism can cause a number of health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility and heart disease.

Dana's Story | She became an advocate after her diagnosis with hypothyroidism and first pregnancy. At that time, she trusted her doctors as the experts, never thinking they might not know everything about hypothyroidism. Since the loss of her first son, she became self educated and ended up teaching the physicians about the dangers of low thyroid during pregnancy. Joyfully, she later gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Career and Education | Dana is an executive coach and trainer in New York City. She graduated with her Honors Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and worked as a high school science teacher for several years. During her graduate studies at Columbia University she was selected to be the team leader of a prestigious academic research team.

Take Note | Learn more about self observation in order to speak competently to your health care provider. Women, especially, must pay attention to any changes in energy. How will we know if fatigue is due to stress, over work, caring for family or a change in metabolism? Have the symptoms come on suddenly? Do you feel so fatigued you cannot carry on your daily responsibilities?
Holistic Healing | Hypothyroidism effects a broad range of symptoms and effects the emotions as well as the endocrine system. When the thyroid gland constantly releases hormones in its attempt to balance the body, the gland can enlarge and develop a goiter. Memory loss, fuzzy concentration, signs of aging and general depression may result. A complete picture of symptoms will tell the story.
Hypothyroidism in infants | Dana says, "Thyroid hormones play a critical role in fetal brain development. The fetus depends entirely on maternal thyroid hormones for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, until the baby’s thyroid begins to produce thyroid hormones on its own. For the first trimester the baby is completely dependent on the mother for thyroid hormones necessary for brain development. Babies born to mothers with undiagnosed or inadequately treated hypothyroidism are at risk for lower IQ scores and learning disabilities. Despite the mounting evidence, thyroid screening is currently NOT mandatory in pregnancy. Although hypothyroidism most often affects middle-aged and older women, anyone can develop the condition, including infants. Initially, babies born without a thyroid gland or with a gland that doesn't work properly may have few signs and symptoms. When hypothyroidism in infants isn't treated, even mild cases can lead to severe physical and mental retardation."
Hypothyroidism in children and teens | In general, children and teens who develop hypothyroidism have the same signs and symptoms as adults do, but they may also experience them differently.
High Cholesterol | With the push for everyone to be on cholesterol lowering drugs, is it possible hypothyroidism may be masked? Let's find out if there are correlations between cholesterol and the thyroid gland.
