Hypothyroidism (Low Thyroid) & Lyme

Hello all,

Lyme is the second great imitator next to syphilis well they are cousins.
The amount of people i knew who had thyroid dysfunction  is quite staggering.
Are humans really that weak that their bodies do not function properly?
Ok you could blame the water, chemicals, genetics etc.
But the major culprit is a spirochete infection. especially with the thyroid it is such a pity that Doctors do not have the time or the knowledge to investigate further when a patient is diagnosed with a Thyroid dysfunction isn't it?
Instead of just diagnosing a Thyroid dysfunction they should also test for an infection.
But that would be too easy wouldn't it.
Of course then the patient would get cured and would not have to keep on taking drugs for their condition and that doesn't make money does it.
My mother had low thyroid I was told I was borderline low thyroid the actual cause LYME!

Anyone who moved into the area where the puppy used to live would within a year be diagnosed with a thyroid dysfunction.
Of course people who already lived there also had thyroid dysfunction too like being part of the thyroid club although I am sure no one wanted to be part of that particular club.
It is well known that Lyme and spirochete infection affects the thyroid gland.
When there is a dysfunction with the Thyroid this not a nice problem to have what with either weight loss or weight gain swollen puffy fingers and the eyes get affected as well.
Not only that having to take tablets every day for the rest of your life or you could put your life at risk.
Suffering weak and aching muscles, tiredness, the knees buckling or just not working properly.
Brain fog, joint pain.

It is well documented that the Thyroid dysfunction originates in the pituitary  or Hypothalamus it is vital that if one is diagnosed with Lyme or a spirochete infection the thyroid is tested as well or if you are diagnosed with a thyroid dysfunction be tested for an infection as well.

There are many things one can do when one is diagnosed with Thyroid dysfunction and always consult a medical professional.
