Why is there such a lack of knowledge among Medical professionals
and Hashimoto's and its various links to celiac, diabetes, thyroid cancer etc.
This disease has been" CLOSETED" SINCE 1912.
There is very little progress made in both diagnosing it before it is too
late. Life style of those with it is seriously impaired.
Hashimoto should be a household word not a "what??"
When I spoke to the Hashimoto's foundation people I was hard pressed to find but one very knowledgeable person.
The reason she said it was not funded and out in the forefront was that
it was basically an older woman's disease and they constitute the majority.
My research shows otherwise. In my family alone we have many under 21
who are symptomatic. Some are diagnosed and some on the way to diagnosis with pressure from our family to have proper testing.
SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE HASHIMOTO'S A HOUSEHOLD
WORD LIKE A COLD OR FLU AND TO NIP IT IN THE BUD BEFORE
IT LEADS TO A LIFE OF MISERY.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
