Given the recent ability to reverse some forms of diabetes, is there any hope for new treatments or strategies to reverse hypo-thyroidism? I have had hypo-thyroidism since 2000, following the birth of my first child. I take 125mcg levothyroxine daily. I have watched the research into diabetes with interest but have no idea what research might be happening into other hormonal/metabolic disorders and would love to know.
I am a newly certified health coach in the US. I'd really love to incorporate your approach into my coaching, while staying within scope of practice. I also see that you offer education for doctors with the lifestyle medicine approach. Do you anticipate offering training for coaches? Do you have any suggestions for implementing your approach within the health coaching scope of practice? Thank you!
Would you be able to do a podcast on thyroid disorders and treatment in the uk. My daughter has been diagnosed with Hashimotos after 4 years of fatigue and other symptoms. The doctor has prescribed t4 medication and told her she will be on it for life. No lifestyle changes were recommended and I have had to pay for a functional practitioner to advise her on these. After 2 months on medication she was told her levels were better so to halve her dose, even though she feels no better. Since her diagnosis I have researched thyroid issues and this seems to be a very common issue . The lack of t3 medication owing to the vast price charge to the NHS is also an issue. I know you did a programme about this but can only find an interview you did on bbc news and not the actual programme itself. Maybe your website could include links to your TV programmes too as they were all very interesting but not easy to find.
