Treatment of Thyroid disease is also an area of controversy as many patients will have a multitude of symptoms supporting diagnosis of underactive thyroid, yet their biochemical blood tests are in normal range. The onset of hypothyroidism is gradual; therefore there can be a time lag between the onset of symptoms and a corresponding change in blood tests. Additionally, the reference range for determining so-called ‘normal’ thyroid function is very wide and some practitioners feel that treatment should start at an earlier stage of the process, before the patient becomes much more functionally affected. Effective natural remedies for thyroid disease may include minerals, vitamins, glandulars and dessicated natural thyroid extract.
